For West Coast Viewers
A note for friends on the West Coast: The Tony telecast will be broadcast on tape delay at 8:00 p.m. Pacific Time on CBS. However, for the benefit of those fans across the globe who do not have access to the broadcast, website coverage of the Tony Awards is live. The winners' names will be posted as they are announced, beginning at 8:00 p.m. ET/5:00 p.m. PT. So if you prefer to remain in suspense until you watch the telecast, we suggest that you log on to live Red Carpet and exclusive Creative Arts Awards coverage beginning at 6:00 p.m. ET/3:00 p.m. PT. Then close your browser and come back after the telecast is over, at which point you can watch video clips of backstage interviews with the winners and presenters.
See you at the Tonys!
Best Wishes, Jiva
