The Tony Awards has announced the star-studded team that will bring Broadway fans across the world exclusive content live from the red carpet and behind-the-scenes at this year's Tony Awards. The American Theatre Wing's 70th Annual Tony Awards - hosted by Tony Award winner James Corden - will air on the CBS Television Network on Sunday, June 12, 2016 (8:00-11:00 PM, ET/delayed PT) live from the Beacon Theatre in New York City.

TV Host Alicia Quarles, Finding Neverland star Laura Michelle Kelly and Tony Award-winning producer Jordan Roth will co-host the Live on the Tony Awards Red Carpet Show, presented by Nordstrom, beginning at 5:30pm ET, interviewing nominees, presenters and performers as they arrive for the big night. Vogue.com Style Editor Edward Barsamian and Broadway favorite Esosa will serve as the fashion correspondents. Randi Zuckerberg will return as the tech/social correspondent.

As the awards show kicks off at 8:00pm ET, the Tony Awards Behind-the-Scenes Show, presented by BroadwayHD, will begin. Tony Nominee Laura Osnes will take viewers along as she chats with the 2016 Tony Nominees, performing casts and presenters before and after they hit the Beacon Theatre stage. Tony Nominee Max von Essen, currently seen in An American in Paris on Broadway, Josh Segarra of Broadway's On Your Feet!, Justin Guarini and Glee star Jenna Ushkowitz will be live from the winners' circle to chat with the newly-minted Tony Award winners. Throughout the night, Tony Award winner Karen Olivo will be on-hand with exclusive behind-the-scenes content and interviews with this year's class of nominees.

"We are thrilled to have such a fantastic team in place to give Broadway fans access to portions of the Tony Awards that they've never seen before. Each personality involved has their own experience and expertise to bring to the live stream, and we can't wait to tune in and see what unfolds, right along with the viewers!," Heather Hitchens, President of the American Theatre Wing, and Charlotte St. Martin, President of The Broadway League, said.

The official Tony Awards Live Stream show will be available beginning at 5:30pm ET on Sunday, June 12th.

While tuned into the live stream, fans can follow the Tony Awards on Snapchat, Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram, for even more behind-the-scenes content, winner announcements, fun trivia and more. For the second year, CBS All Access will offer an outlet for fans to watch the Awards live on their phones, tablets or computers (live stream is available in select markets. Visit CBS.com/allaccess for details).

Last year, the Tony Awards launched the first live stream, aimed to celebrate the longevity and heritage of the awards show while staying fresh, relevant and tapping into the millennial audience. This was accomplished through a fully integrated digital experience - from a fully-produced red carpet live stream event to engaging social media coverage. As a result, the Tony Awards secured the No. 1 spot on Nielsen's Twitter TV ratings and were globally trending all day. The LIVE! From the Red Carpet live stream garnered nearly 1 million views, while the Snapchat Live Story received hundreds of millions of views worldwide.

The American Theatre Wing's 70th Annual Tony Awards - hosted by Tony Award winner James Corden - will air on the CBS Television Network on Sunday, June 12, 2016 (8:00-11:00 PM, ET/delayed PT) live from the Beacon Theatre in New York City. The Tony Awards, which honors theatre professionals for distinguished achievement on Broadway, has been broadcast on CBS since 1978. The Tony Awards are presented by The Broadway League and the American Theatre Wing.
