Wochit News
The Tony Awards ceremony celebrating the best in Broadway theater is postponed indefinitely. It is the latest big cultural event to fall victim to the coronavirus pandemic. The awards ceremony had been scheduled to take place in New York City on June 7th. Broadway theaters were closed two weeks ago as an effort to contain the spread of the disease. New York City has become the epicenter of the U.S. outbreak, according to Reuters. Organizers say the Tony Awards will be postponed and rescheduled at a later date. The Tony Awards for plays, musicals, directors and performers are regarded as the highest honors in the American theater world. Multiple cultural events involving large gatherings have been canceled or postponed in recent weeks. This includes France’s Cannes film festival and the Glastonbury and Coachella music festivals.
