Tony Awards Tickets
Tony Awards TicketsDesigned to celebrate achievement in the theater world, the Tony Awards take their name from Antoinette Perry. Perry was an icon of American theater during her lifetime. She not only acted but directed and produced shows. More importantly, she led the American Theatre Wing during World War II. She died in 1946. On April 6, 1947, the first Tony Awards ceremony was held. Performance was a part of the ceremony from the beginning. Stars like Mickey Rooney and Herb Shriner helped provide entertainment during the ceremony. That night, Elia Kazan, Patricia Neal and Arthur Miller were among the famous names to win awards. There were over 1,000 guests present.
Broadway's Biggest NightIt wasn't long until the Tony awards grew. The first year, just eleven awards were presented. Larger venues were sought out as awards categories were added. And the public wanted access to see the best performers in the industry gathered in one place. By 1956, the Tonys were being broadcast on local TV. In 1967, they were televised nationally for the first time. Tickets to the live event were, of course, coveted. The opportunity to see so much high-level talent up close, performing selections from the year's biggest shows, was and is a unique experience in the world of entertainment. Currently, the Tony Awards are broadcasted around the world annually.
