Returning to the Tony Awards stage for the first time since 1970, legendary EGOT and show business icon Barbra Streisand will present at the 2016 Tony Awards. Hosted by Tony Award-winner James Corden, the telecast will broadcast live from the Beacon Theatre in New York City, on the CBS television network, Sunday, June 12th, 8:00 – 11:00 p.m. (ET/PT time delay). The Tony Awards are presented by The Broadway League and the American Theatre Wing.

As previously announced, Broadway’s biggest night will feature appearances by Oprah Winfrey, Cate Blanchett, 2016 Tony Nominees Steve Martin and Edie Brickell, Carole King, Audra McDonald, Saoirse Ronan, Patina Miller and Nathan Lane, among others. Additional presenters will be announced soon.

While Streisand hasn’t appeared on the Tony Awards since 1970, Broadway has never left her. Streisand next releases “ENCORE: Movie Partners Sing Broadway,” her third and long-awaited Broadway album, later in 2016. Streisand’s “The Broadway Album” and “Back to Broadway” released in 1985 and 1993, respectfully, both went multi-platinum.

Streisand’s appearance at the Tony Awards precedes the legendary recording artist’s nine-city August North American concert tour: THE MUSIC…THE MEM’RIES…THE MAGIC!
