The 74th Annual Tony Awards, scheduled to take place on June 7, will be postponed amid concerns over the spread of coronavirus, according to a statement from the show’s production company.


 
The event, which honors the year’s best theater and Broadway productions, was set to take place at Radio City Music Hall in New York City, which, as of Wednesday, has more than 17,000 confirmed cases of coronavirus.

“The health and safety of the Broadway community, artists and fans is of the utmost importance to us,” the statement from Tony Award Productions said.

A new date for the show has not been set but the decision will be made “in coordination” with broadcast partner CBS, according to the statement.

“We will announce new dates and additional information once Broadway opens again,” the statement added. “We are looking forward to celebrating Broadway and our industry when it is safe to do so.”

The Tonys joins an ever-growing list of shows and events being rescheduled amid the pandemic.

More are expected as the timetable for relief continues to be uncertain.
