The Broadway League has announced that the 11th annual Jimmy Awards ceremony will be streamed live in its entirety!
Fans can catch the ceremony on The Jimmy Awards Facebook and YouTube pages on Monday, June 24th at 7:30 pm. The Jimmy Awards will take place at the Minskoff Theatre, 200 West 45th Street in Manhattan, and will be hosted by Tony Award Winner Ben Platt.
“Family, friends and fans will have the chance to root for this year’s Jimmy Awards nominees and Broadway’s next generation from wherever they may be in the world. This is your opportunity to see Broadway’s future stars at the very beginning of their careers,” said Charlotte St. Martin, President of the Broadway League. “We’re delighted that Dear Evan Hansen will join us again to livestream this event that will inspire and dazzle everyone watching and celebrate young talent from across the country. You’re going to love what we have in store for this year’s ceremony!”
“Last year, the livestream brought the Jimmy Awards to new audiences for the first time ever – and helped us discover our current Evan, 2018 Jimmy Award-winner Andrew Barth Feldman,” Dear Evan Hansen producer Stacey Mindich said. “I’m so proud that we’re able to continue this tradition and help introduce people all over the world to the Jimmy Awards. They remind us all why we fell in love with theatre, and why providing theatre programs in schools is so important. I’m thrilled we can have a small part in celebrating these programs and the incredible talent that comes out of them.”
In addition to Jimmy Award winner Andrew Barth Feldman making his Broadway debut in Dear Evan Hansen, Reneé Rapp, winner of the Best Actress Award at the 2018 National High School Musical Theatre Awards (The Jimmy Awards), will take over the role of "Regina George" in Mean Girls starting Tuesday, September 10.
Can't wait to see what talent the 2019 Jimmy Awards will bring to Broadway!
