NEW YORK (AP) -- Neil Patrick Harris has given way to Hugh Jackman at the Tony Awards.

Producers of the annual telecast celebrating the best of Broadway said Tuesday that Jackman will once again take up hosting duties for the next awards on June 8 at Radio City Music Hall.

It will be Jackman's fourth time hosting the Tonys.

The official eligibility cut-off date will be April 24, meaning all shows hoping to be considered for the awards must open by that date. Nominations will be announced April 29.

Last year's telecast saw viewership jump to 7.24 million people, the show's largest audience in four years. Harris hosted for the fourth time but he'll be on Broadway this spring in "Hedwig and the Angry Inch."
