New York, NY (June 11, 2024) – The Tony Awards is proud to continue its long-standing partnership with City National Bank, which serves as the official bank of The Tony Awards. City National will present the "Tony Awards First Impressions Cam" to celebrate this year's winners in their first moments off-stage. The 77th Annual Tony Awards will take place on Sunday, June 16, at the David H. Koch Theater at Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts in New York City. The Tony Awards are presented by The Broadway League and the American Theatre Wing.

Throughout the telecast, actor and producer Erich Bergen will host the exclusive "Tony Awards First Impressions Cam," presented by City National, where he will be the first to speak to this year's Tony Award winners backstage, following their acceptance speeches. The "First Impressions" exclusive content will be available to view on the Tony Awards YouTube channel, and social platforms @TheTonyAwards.

"City National Bank has been a tremendous partner of the Tony Awards and we're thrilled to have them return for this year's event," said Heather Hitchens, president and CEO of the American Theatre Wing and Jason Laks, interim president of the Broadway League.
