NEW YORK (AP) - Barbra Streisand will take the stage at this month’s Tony Awards for the first time in 46 years.

The singer and actress, who was a Tony nominee in 1962 for “I Can Get It for You Wholesale” and in 1964 for “Funny Girl,” hasn’t graced Tony night since 1970, when she got a special Tony.

James Corden, a Tony-winner and the host of CBS’s “The Late Late Show” will make his debut as the Tony emcee June 12 at the Beacon Theatre in New York City. It will be televised on CBS.

Others scheduled to attend include Oprah Winfrey, Cate Blanchett, Carole King, Audra McDonald, Saoirse Ronan, Patina Miller and Nathan Lane. Comedy god Steve Martin and Grammy-winning singer-songwriter Edie Brickell will also help present.
