Tony Awards set for June 8 at Radio City

NEW YORK (AP) Theater fans, it's time to mark your calendars.

The Tony Awards will be held June 8 at Radio City Music Hall. CBS will televise the ceremony, as it has since 1978.

The official eligibility cut-off date will be April 24, meaning all shows hoping to be considered for the awards must open by that date. Nominations will be announced April 29.

This year's telecast saw viewership jump to 7.24 million people, the show's largest U.S audience in four years. Neil Patrick Harris returned to host for the fourth time. There was no word on who might host it next year.
