The Tony Awards ceremony, left homeless after losing its long-term space at Radio City Music Hall, has found a new theater for the telecast on the Upper West Side of Manhattan.

The Broadway League and American Theatre Wing, producers of show that honors the best of Broadway, say the June 12 event will be broadcast live from the Beacon Theatre by CBS.

The Art Deco theater has 2,800 seats and opened in 1929 as a showcase for vaudeville, musicals, opera and movies.

It has hosted concerts by the Rolling Stones, Michael Jackson, James Taylor, Radiohead and Queen.
