Two television and Broadway faves will make the big announcement for Tony Award nominations come May 1st.
Tony and Emmy Award winner Kristin Chenoweth and Emmy Award winner and current Broadway leading man Jim Parsons will announce the nominees for the 2012 Tony Awards on May 1, 2012, at the New York Public Library for Performing Arts located at 111 Amsterdam Avenue between 64th and 65th Streets.
The Tony Noms will be broadcast live at 8:30 a.m. ET in their entirety via the Tonys' website as well as locally on NY1.
Expect many of the favorites to come from the plays opening now as well as the musicals and big revivals hitting the boards between now and the eligibility cut-off date toward the end of April. But don't forget the critically acclaimed performances from shows that have already closed, including the star-studded Follies and the powerful Wit.
The 66th Annual Tony Awards event will take place at the Beacon Theatre on June 10, 2012, with impresario Neil Patrick Harris back again to host.
