Tuesday is a big day for Broadway with the Tony nominations set for a live webcast starting at 5:30 a.m. PDT.

The nominations will be announced on TonyAwards.com by multiple Tony winner Sutton Foster (most recently for "Anything Goes") and "Modern Family" actor Jesse Tyler Ferguson (who starred in the Hollywood Bowl production of "The Producers" last summer).

The American Theatre Wing will nominate plays and musicals in 26 categories for productions that opened during the 2012-2013 Broadway season. The announcement will take place at the New York Public Library for Performing Arts. 

The 67th annual Tony Awards ceremony will take place at Radio City Music Hall at 8 p.m. Sunday, June 9, and will be broadcast on CBS.

Unlike the Oscars, the Tony Awards will be tape-delayed for the West Coast, so they will air in Los Angeles on Channel 2 three hours after they start, at 8 p.m.

Check back with Culture Monster on Tuesday morning for the nominees as well as analysis by Times Theater Critic Charles McNulty.
