Theatre fans are braced for the Annual Tony Awards ceremony, which will take place this June in New York.
This is the latest edition of what is the highest award in American theatre and it will see all the biggest stars of stage and screen taking to the red carpet.
The Tony Awards do not just draw American lovers of theatre either. They are a must-watch occasion for theatre fans around the world.
Unfortunately, they are not always broadcast on TV outside the USA. So, whether you are an American theatre fan on the road or an overseas theatre obsessive, if you want to watch the latest edition of the Annual Tony Awards this year, you might be wondering how.
This is where we come in. In this guide, we will tell you everything you need to know to enjoy the Annual Tony Awards outside the USA and from just about any country in the world.
Where is the Annual Tony Awards ceremony being shown?
The Annual Tony Awards ceremony is being streamed in the USA on Paramount+.
This is a problem for overseas viewers for a couple of reasons. Firstly, Paramount+ is a subscription service, and secondly, it is not available to viewers outside the USA.
So if you’re on vacation right now, you’re out of luck.
The good news is that there is one nifty little tool that can help you enjoy the Annual Tony Awards ceremony no matter where you are.
How can I watch the Annual Tony Awards ceremony where I am?
If you are not in the USA and are still keen to watch the Annual Tony Awards ceremony, all you will need to do so is a VPN app.
A VPN is an online security and privacy tool that allows you to redirect all your internet data via an external ‘server’.
It sounds complicated but it’s not because the app does all the work for you.
These ‘servers’ mask your real location, which is what streaming services such as Paramount+ use to figure out where in the world you are. Instead, they give you a new virtual location so you can appear anywhere worldwide.
So, to watch the Annual Tony Awards ceremony, you just need to connect to a VPN server located in the USA and then log into your Paramount+ account as usual.
Where to get a VPN?
Choosing the best VPN to do this is the hardest part because there are loads of providers out there, and just about all of them offer US-based servers and claim to be the best for streaming.
The good news is that we have done all the research work, so you don’t have to and our expert opinion is that ExpressVPN is the best VPN app for the job.
It is an excellent all-around VPN service that offers the US-based locations, fast connection speeds, and a range of apps that allows you to stream the Annual Tony Awards on any device you like.
ExpressVPN also comes with great online security provisions, privacy protections, and a host of extra features. There is also a 30-day money-back guarantee for all subscribers too, giving you plenty of time to try before you buy.
Which you choose is entirely down to you.

Who stars in the 75th Annual Tony Awards ceremony?
The stars of the 75th Annual Tony Awards are the actors up for prizes, those in attendance, and, of course, the shows themselves.
Pulitzer Prize-winning musical A Strange Loop has the most nominations being up for an award in no less than 11 categories, while the play with the most nominations (eight) was The Lehman Trilogy.
Nominees for Best Actor include Brits Simon Russell-Beale, Adrian Lester, and David Threlfall, as well as Sam Rockwell, while Best Actress nominees include Mary Louise Parker, Ruth Negga, and LaChanze.

The Annual Tony Awards promises to be a spectacular night of glamour and entertainment featuring the crème de la crème of American theatrical talent.
If you aren’t in the US, you can still watch the ceremony on Paramount+ if you use a VPN. ExpressVPN is my recommendation.
Just sign up, download the app, connect to a US-based server, and then log into Paramount+ as usual.
With the line-up for this year’s Annual Tony Awards ceremony, this is certainly one show you won’t want to miss. And thanks to a VPN, you won’t have to.
