The fall Broadway season hasn’t even started yet but the 2006 Tony Awards will be held June 11, broadcast by CBS from Radio City Music Hall.

Among the upcoming shows that will be eligible for nominations for the best of the 2005-2006 Broadway season are the Nathan Lane-Matthew Broderick revival of “The Odd Couple,” already the fall’s hottest ticket; Andrew Lloyd Webber’s “The Woman in White”; and a musical version of Alice Walker’s novel “The Color Purple.”

The cutoff date for Tony eligibility will be May 10 and the nominations will be announced May 16, according to the League of American Theatres and Producers and the American Theatre Wing, which present the awards.
