The 67th annual Tony Awards ceremony will take place on June 12, 2011 and will be moving from Radio City Music Hall this year to the historic Beacon Theatre, on Manhattan's upper west side. I decided to reach back in my photo archives to take a look back at a couple of previous Tony years on the Red Carpet at Radio City and in the Media Room, overlooking Manhattan, from the former Rainbow Room complex.
