But the 2019-2020 season has not been forgotten – the awards were only a year ago. On Sunday, September 26th, the 74th annual Tony Awards will take place again, celebrating live theater. And like everything else at this year’s awards, watching the Tonys 2021 will be a little different. This is how you capture the awards and (most importantly) the performances.

Here’s how to watch the 2021 Tony Awards

In an unusual way, the award ceremony component is broadcast exclusively in the stream Parent +. Like most streaming services, they have a seven-day free trial that you can take advantage of (if you haven’t already).
