For those of us that unfortunately are without televisions, does anyone know of a place online that the Tonys will be live streaming? Thanks!
I am a firm believer in serendipity- all the random pieces coming together in one wonderful moment, when suddenly you see what their purpose was all along.

Playbill.com will be streaming it live which is great news for us west-coasters who have to wait until 8pm pt to watch it.

Seems they will only be streaming the red carpet and not the actual show.

Yeah no, if you read that page, Playbill will be streaming the red carpet, and then tweeting the winners and interviews backstage as they meet the media after their win. Absolutely not streaming the broadcast, which is undoubtedly what the OP was asking about.
Words don't deserve that kind of malarkey. They're innocent, neutral, precise, standing for this, describing that, meaning the other, so if you look after them you can build bridges across incomprehension and chaos. But when they get their corners knocked off, they're no good anymore…I don't think writers are sacred, but words are. They deserve respect. If you get the right ones in the right order, you can nudge the world a little.

Yeah, Playbill is only streaming the red carpet.

Unfortunately us West Coasters will have to wait till 8pm local time to watch it, since it won't be streaming live. I wish CBS would join the 21st Century and realize that tape delaying both the Tonys and the Grammys has pretty much been rendered obsolete by the internet and social media.

To be fair, they only promised wall-to-wall coverage, which is exactly where one would expect to find a carpet.

So, looks like I will be without access to a tv during broadcast time as well. Shiiiit. I know no one has accurate info for this year, but in years past I've read about people watching live (if unofficial) streams online. For a novice, what are the best sites to check on Tony night?

Oh jeez, I didn't think about the West coast thing (I live there now). That sucks!
Jimmy, what are you doing here in the middle of the night? It's almost 9 PM!

Yeah, I live on the west coast and I think its so ridiculous that they make us wait 3 hours for it when they could just play it at 5:00. Especially in this day and age, when anyone who wants to can find out who won in 2 seconds by doing a quick google search, which might lose them some viewership. Though I like to be surprised when I watch the broadcast, so I have to swear off all social media for 3 hours every year.

Are the creative awards being done during the commercial breaks again this year? and not as a pre-show?

Website says they're being given out both before the show and during the commercial breaks:

Billy Porter and Karen Ziemba Host the 2014 Creative Arts Awards – Watch on TonyAwards.com

A pair of past Tony Award®-winners will take the stage on Broadway’s biggest night to hand out American Theatre Wing Tony Awards in more than a dozen Creative Arts Award categories. Billy Porter and Karen Ziemba will preside over the Creative Arts Awards portion of the 2014 Tony Awards ceremony on June 8, which will take place before the CBS telecast begins, as well as during the commercial breaks.

Just google CBS livestream and hope for the best. They're not always the clearest, but they usually get the job done until the YouTube clips show up.

I've done this for various sporting events and other shows; I don't think the Tonys would be that different.

Anyone recall when exactly they put the Tony Awards up on iTunes last year? Was it on Tony night, Monday morning, later in the week? I know there's no guarantee it will be the same timing this year; just wondering if anyone recalls what happened in '13.

Which one? Frank DiLella or Patrick Pacheo? They're both annoying in different ways, though the younger is at least nice to look at it, if a bit frozen.

The guy on the playbill stream is so annoying. He just said Fran d was playing the fairy godmother in Cinderella.
