Which Shows Will Be Eligible for 2020 Tony Awards?

Better late than never! As BroadwayWorld reported last week, 2020 will not pass without a Tony Awards ceremony. The American Theatre Wing's 74th Annual Tony Awards will air digitally this fall. Though final eligibility determinations have not yet been announced, word from industry insiders is that the cutoff will be February 19, 2020- meaning that two shows that opened before the Broadway shutdown will not be considered for nominations- Girl From the North Country and West Side Story.

What could be nominated? We've rounded up the full list of eligible shows below!

Check out rulings previously made by the Tony Awards Administration Committee for shows from the 2019/20 season at their first and second meetings. Another meeting will take place on Friday, August 28 for further eligibility decisions.

The Antoinette Perry "Tony" Award, which was founded by the American Theatre Wing in 1947, is bestowed annually on theatre professionals for distinguished achievement on Broadway. The Tony is one of the most coveted awards in the entertainment industry and the annual telecast - the night America watches Broadway - is considered one of the most prestigious programs on television.
