ASU Gammage and Tony Award Productions are excited to announce that they will be hosting an official Tony Viewing Party, a LIVE Tony Award® simulcast from Radio City Music Hall in New York City. The event will take place on Sunday, June 13 at ASU Gammage. It will feature an advance telecast of the 2010 Tony Awards allowing guests to see the ceremony and the winners prior to the local airing on CBS 5. Red Carpet activities begin at 4 p.m. and the live simulcast begins at 5 p.m. at ASU Gammage.
Partygoers will enjoy a Red Carpet arrival complete with local celebrities, paparazzi and more. Each guest will receive the official Tony Playbill® (the same Playbill that will be handed out to guests inside Radio City Music Hall).
“As Arizona’s only Tony voter I have had the pleasure to see the Tonys live for many years in New York. This year, 3,000 people can join us at ASU Gammage to see the stars, the performances and of course who walks away with the Tony Awards live first-hand,” says Colleen Jennings-Roggensack executive director of ASU Gammage. “We are thrilled that ASU Gammage will be the next-best place to be on Tony night.”
