I don’t think shows that opened should be “punished” because there are only 23 shows instead of normal average around 35-40. They opened this season and that is the requirement. One issue is a recent opening show might not have had enough time for tony voters to see it.
I expect restaurants, gyms, libraries—smaller gathering places—will be allowed to open first for a few weeks and then larger events like sports and theatre will be allowed to resume. That is probably late May or June. Even if it goes longer, I could see the tonys without a live audience—announce award winners and maybe clips from shows that probably exist already.
