The Tony Awards, Broadway’s biggest night, is getting a new celebration this year. Instead of the former after-party at the Plaza, the event will be a block party, paying homage to “old New York” and “uptown flavor.” The party will be presented by City National Bank, and guests will enjoy a food spread that includes ceviche, paella, and Shake Shack burgers.

Produced unscripted by Ariana DeBose and hosted at the United Palace Theatre, the party features a shaved ice concoction and an espresso martini on the cocktail menu, curated by Ketel One and Zacapa. PR guru Rick Miramontez’s legendary party, co-hosted by producer John Gore, will also be back for the first time since 2019 at the Carlyle. It is expected to draw talent like Neil Patrick Harris and David Burtka, with Barry Manilow getting on the piano, and Memphis Murphy spinning tunes for dancing.

Broadway shows will also hold their own bashes, with many in Midtown. Nominated shows, such as Tom Stoppard’s play “Leopoldstadt,” “Kimberly Akimbo,” and “Topdog/Underdog,” are slated to be hosting their own parties. Additionally, “Shucked,” nominated for nine awards, will be hosting a party at the Edison.

The Tony Awards include performances by several casts, including “Camelot,” “Into The Woods,” “& Juliet,” “Some Like It Hot,” and “Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street.” The cast and Lea Michele of “Funny Girl” will also perform at the show, where Tony Awards for Lifetime Achievement will be presented to “Cabaret” star Joel Grey and composer John Kander. Due to the WGA strike, the event will not have a script, and the insider hinted that it would be more performances and less banter.

Overall, the Tony Awards promise to be an unforgettable night for theater-enthusiasts and celebrities alike on Broadway’s red carpet.
