Kristin Chenoweth & Alan Cumming To Host The Tony Awards


The hosts of this year’s Tony Awards telecast on CBS will be Alan Cumming and Kristin Chenoweth.

Cumming has just finished a sold-out run at Studio 54 as the emcee in “Cabaret,” and Chenoweth may well win a Tony for her acclaimed turn in the hit musical “On the Twentieth Century,” according to The New York Post.

Chenoweth is being very tightlipped about her upcoming assignment to co-host the Tony Awards, according to CBS.com. The Tony-winning star of “On the Twentieth Century” was on vocal rest Wednesday and was only able to communicate by writing on a white board. But, as indefatigable as ever, she attended a meet-and-greet with fellow nominees, laughing despite her frustration.

“This is my own version of hell,” the Emmy- and Tony Award-winning star of “Wicked” wrote. “I can’t believe I’m sick.”
“I want to kill it” with Alan, she wrote. “Broadway all the way!” Asked what we might expect, she wrote “kookoo bananas.”
The Awards will be broadcast on CBS, June 7.
