This will be the third time that he’s hosted the show, previously serving as host for both the 63rd Annual Tony Awards in 2009, and the 65th Annual Tony Awards in 2011. Like he did in 2011, Harris will also act as a producer, along with executive producers Ricky Kirshner and Glenn Weiss of White Cherry Entertainment on the 66th Annual Tony Awards.
“I’m thrilled to be a part of this year’s Tony Awards,” he said. “Not only will I be shining a spotlight on the best that Broadway has to offer, but hopefully I’ll score some free house seats to a show or 5.”
The Tony Awards will air live on CBS from 8:00-11:00PM (ET/PT time delay). The American Theatre Wing’s Tony Awards are presented by The Broadway League and the American Theatre Wing.
