Tony Awards – New York City – Sunday, June 13, 2010
The biggest day on Broadway is happening tomorrow night and American Idiot is nominated for three Tony awards: Best Musical, Best Set Design (Christine Jones), and Best Lighting Design (Kevin Adams). American Idiot is up against three shows for the top award: Memphis, Fela!, and Million Dollar Quartet. Rumors have it that the American Idiot cast will do two songs (or portions of them) for the broadcast: “Boulevard of Broken Dreams,” and “American Idiot.”
Green Day will be flying in for the awards after their gig tonight in Austria to perform with the cast. It’s a long ride, but I could never picture them missing the Tonys. This show is their baby and the cast kids have become family to them. Break a leg to the entire cast and crew! No matter what happens tomorrow, always know that you fucked Broadway up in the best possible way: by daring to make a loud and fast musical unlike others.
From the Tonys site, here’s the rundown of tomorrow’s action:
On June 13 – Tony night – the fun begins even before the audience members take their seats at Radio City Music Hall®.
6:00 p.m. ET – The Red Carpet
Broadway and Hollywood celebrities arrive early to meet the press–and walk the Audemars Piguet Red Carpet. We’ll be webcasting their arrivals beginning at 6:00 p.m. ET via live video courtesy of NY1 News.

Here is more information regarding the broadcast:
International Fans may have to watch them on a few days delay on television. Here’s the Tony Awards site regarding broadcasts.
The Tony Awards will stream the Red Carpet, the Creative Awards, and the Press Room Live. I do not know if this can be accessed by International Fans. Tony Awards site link can be found here.
In New York City, you can watch the live broadcast from Times Square on a jumbotron, including the Red Carpet entries. The simulcast will happen rain or shine. More information about this can be found at the Tony Awards site.
