It is common for the new Broadway shows for the year to give performances. While performers are yet to be announced, you may expect to see numbers from Some Like it Hot, & Juliet, Kimberly Akimbo and more.

The WGA Strike and the 2023 Tony Awards:

The Tony Awards Management Company asked for a waiver from the Writer's Guild of America (WGA), but were denied. However, the WGA said it would not picket the event, allowing the award show to move forward as scheduled. As a result of the strike, however, this year's Tony Awards will go on unscripted. This will affect the show in big ways. For example, Lin Manuel Miranda, who was working on the opening number, is no longer moving forward with this introduction.
