Tony Can Wait

It was inevitable, and now it’s official, The 74th Annual Tony Awards have been postponed with no new date as of yet, and it’s all because of one reason, concerns over coronavirus, the health and safety of the Broadway community are more important than the awards themselves with the official award show organizers.

While the Tony Awards are held off until it’s safe to go outside again, the closure of Broadway since March 12 has halted not only stage shows, but any possible period of consideration where productions are happening, and the committee for the Tony’s decide on which shows to nominate.

Broadway has seen its share of benefits lately since actors and crew are out of work, plus the passing of Terrence McNally, who died from coronavirus on Tuesday.

The only saving grace now to any new type of Broadway content is calling for the release of “In The Heights” onto VOD instead of waiting till it’s out in theaters, which got postponed indefinitely also.
