Sara Bareilles and Josh Groban will co-host the ceremony, which will be broadcast live on CBS television.
Though confirmed as a Special Tony winner, Springsteen will not compete for any other awards during the ceremony. According to Tony rules, the Special Tony honors “a live theatrical event that … does not fit into any other category of Tony Award to be awarded for the current season.”
