Kevin Spacey, a Tony-winning actor lately playing a nefarious president of the United States on Netflix’s “House of Cards,” will be the host of this year’s Tony Awards.
Mr. Spacey, 57, won his Tony in 1991, as a featured actor in “Lost in Yonkers.” He has appeared in six Broadway productions, including the 2007 revival of “A Moon for the Misbegotten.”
He served for more than a decade as the artistic director of the Old Vic Theater in London.
The Tony Awards, which each year honor plays and musicals presented on Broadway, will take place on June 11 at Radio City Music Hall. Much of the ceremony will be broadcast on CBS, starting at 8 p.m. (Some awards are bestowed before the telecast, or during commercial breaks.) The awards are presented by The Broadway League and the American Theater Wing.
