Ariana DeBose hosts Tonys for third time.

In a recent development, — The Tony Awards are moving uptown to Lincoln Center this year, but the host has remained the same: Arianna DeBose, who has now hosted the show for three consecutive years, will be making her third consecutive appearance as MC.

The 2023 and 2022 ceremonies were hosted by the Tony Award–nominee and Academy Award winner; this year, on June 16, she will return to the show as a producer and choreographer of the opening number.

I couldn't say no to the opportunity to host the Tonys at Lincoln Center for a second time. DeBose expressed his enthusiasm for working with the team to produce a spectacular Broadway celebration of the season's accomplishments for the benefit of our community and the general public.

Last year, during the Hollywood writers' strike, DeBose was much praised for her hosting duties. She presided over a scriptless performance and began the broadcast by dancing and leaping through the United Palace Theatre lobby. Her performance was recognized with an Emmy nomination.

Summer: The Donna Summer Musical," "Hamilton," "A Bronx Tale," "Pippin," "Motown the Musical," "Bring It On: The Musical," and "Company" are just a few of DeBose's many stage credits. She appeared in Apple TV+'s "Schmigadoon!" and received an Oscar for her performance in Steven Spielberg's "West Side Story" adaptation.

Following a pre-show on Pluto TV, where Tony Awards will be presented, the three-hour main event will air on CBS and stream onParamount+ from 8-11 p.m. EDT/5 p.m.-8 p.m. PDT, much like last year.

For the 2023–2024 season, the Tony eligibility deadline is April 25, and the 2024 Tony Award nominations will be revealed on April 30. A joint presentation of the American Theatre Wing and the Broadway League bestows these honors.

Tom Stoppard's "Leopoldstadt," which delves into Jewish identity through an intergenerational drama, was named best play last year, while the touching, humorous-sad musical "Kimberly Akimbo" was named best new musical. The play "Good Night, Oscar" starred Sean Hayes, while "Kimberly Akimbo" was acted by Victoria Clark.
