Tony Awards: Which Broadway shows are eligible for nominations? When is the 2024 show?

Ilana Keller

It's been a whirlwind of a Broadway season − particularly in the last few weeks. While April always is a busy time for shows opening before the Tony Awards deadline, this year we saw 14 shows open over a three-week span.


The cut-off deadline was Thursday, April 25, so the season officially is in the books. And now the Tony Awards fun begins.

Thirty-six shows are eligible for this year's awards, including 21 musicals. Of those, 15 are new musicals vying for best musical. The season also included non-eligible productions of Alex Edelman's "Just For Us," "El Mago Pop" and "Melissa Etheridge: My Window."

Nominations for the 2024 Tony Awards are set to be announced on Tuesday, April 30. Here's what you need to know:
