Tony Awards to head back to Radio City Music Hall

FILE - In this June 7, 2009 file photo, actors perform a segment from the show Guys and Dolls at the 63rd annual Tony Awards in New York. The Broadway League and the American Theatre Wing, joint producers of the Tony Awards show, said that the glittery event will be broadcast live from Radio City Music Hall this year. Producers of the show were forced to find a new home for the 2011 event after Cirque du Soleil moved into the 6,000-seat Rockefeller Center arena with its $50 million acrobatic rock opera "Zarkana.” The Tonys had been hosted at Radio City since 1997. For the past two years, the Tonys were handed out at the Beacon Theater on Manhattan's Upper West Side. The venue was much smaller, having only about 2,870 seats, leading to ticket-rationing.
