Ariana DeBose, the talented actress known for her roles in ‘West Side Story’ and ‘Hamilton’, is set to host the prestigious Tony Awards for the third year in a row. This year’s event will take place at the iconic David H. Koch Theater at Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts in New York City on June 16. But hosting is not the only role Ariana will play at the Tony Awards – she will also serve as producer and choreographer for the opening number, promising an unforgettable evening of celebration for the Broadway community and viewers at home.

Ariana DeBose: Host, Producer, and Choreographer

In a statement, Ariana expressed her excitement about returning to host the Tony Awards at Lincoln Center, saying, “I couldn’t pass up the chance to host the Tonys one more time at Lincoln Center. I’m excited to collaborate with the team to create an incredible celebration of this season’s achievements on Broadway for our community and for everyone at home.” Her unique sense of artistry, creativity, and talent has earned her praise from industry veterans, including Heather Hitchens, president and CEO of the American Theatre Wing, and Jason Laks, interim president of The Broadway League.

A Unique Broadcast Format

The Tony Awards will once again be split into two parts for the broadcast. Paramount’s free streaming service PlutoTV will air ‘The Tony Awards: Act One’, featuring the pre-show and selected awards presentations. The main broadcast will then go live on CBS and be available for streaming on Paramount+. Last year’s Tony Awards presented a challenge for Ariana as she had to run the show without a script due to the Writer’s Guild of America strike. Despite the obstacles, Ariana delivered a memorable performance, showcasing her quick wit and improvisational skills.

Award-Winning Actress and Host

Ariana DeBose is no stranger to accolades. She has won an Academy Award, a British Academy Film Award, and a Golden Globe Award, in addition to receiving nominations for a Tony Award and a Primetime Emmy Award. Time magazine even named her one of the 100 most influential people in the world in 2022. With a background in dance and theater, Ariana made her Broadway debut in 2011 and has since appeared in various productions, including ‘Motown: The Musical’, ‘Pippin’, and ‘Hamilton’. Her hosting gigs at the Tony Awards in 2022 and 2023 further solidified her reputation as a versatile and talented performer.

Closing thoughts

As Ariana DeBose prepares to host the Tony Awards for the third consecutive year, Broadway fans and industry insiders alike are eager to see what she has in store for this year’s event. With her passion for the arts, creative flair, and natural charm, Ariana is sure to dazzle audiences and make the 2023 Tony Awards a night to remember.
