Tonys Benefit Event Postponed Amid Unrest

A online event that was supposed to help tide theater fans over until the Tony Awards were rescheduled or Broadway productions reopened has been postponed in the wake of ongoing nationwide unrest after the death of George Floyd in police custody on May 25.

“We stand in solidarity with our colleagues, artists, friends, communities and audiences of all races in the fight for equality and unity,” Paul Wontorek, the editor in chief of the industry website, said in a statement.

A new date for the event, “Show of Shows: Salutes the Tonys,” scheduled for Sunday — when the Tonys would have taken place — has not been announced.

The Tonys were postponed in March because of the coronavirus, and that ceremony’s fate is uncertain. The Broadway season was cut short by the health crisis and shows have been canceled through Sept. 6.
