Tony Awards

The Tony Awards began in 1947 to honor the best of professional theatre on Broadway in New York City.

The Tony for Best Revival was first awarded in 1977 and called “Most Innovative Production of a Revival.” In 1980, the name was changed to “Best Reproduction (Play or Musical).” The name changed again in 1987 to its current award title, the "Tony Award for Best Revival."

Similar to the Tony for Best Director, the category honoring the Best Revival began by combined both plays and musicals. In 1994, the category was separated into two awards: the Tony Award for Best Revival of a Play and the Tony Award for Best Revival of Musical.

The Tony Award for Best Revival was not awarded in 1979.
