Eligibility:

The Tony Awards eligibility cut-off date for the 2021–22 season is May 4, 2022, for all Broadway productions which meet all other eligibility requirements. Nominations for the 2022 Tony Awards were announced by Adrienne Warren and Joshua Henry on May 9, 2022. They were initially going to be announced on May 3 but were extended a week to accommodate possible COVID-19 outbreaks.

A revival of West Side Story that opened on February 20, 2020, was considered ineligible for the 74th Tony Awards because too few nominators and voters had seen it before Broadway shut down on March 12, 2020, due to the pandemic, and it did not resume when Broadway reopened in September 2021.
