The Tony Awards, which honors theatre professionals for distinguished achievement on Broadway, has been broadcast on CBS since 1978.
James Corden, the host of CBS’ The Late Late Show and a Tony winner himself, will host Sunday’s ceremony.
Hadestown, singer-songwriter Anais Mitchell’s Broadway debut, leads the nominations with 14 nods, followed by the jukebox musical Ain’t Too Proud, built around songs by the Temptations, which received a dozen nominations.
The musical Hadestown, which intertwines the myths of Orpheus and Eurydice and Hades and Persephone, elbowed aside more familiar names, including stage adaptations of Tootsie and Beetlejuice, which both also got best musical nods.
The heartwarming The Prom rounds out the best new musical category.
The best play nominees are the Northern Irish drama The Ferryman from Jez Butterworth, the Rupert Murdoch play Ink, Taylor Mac’s Broadway debut Gary: A Sequel To Titus Andronicus, Tarell Alvin McCraney’s Choir Boy and Heidi Schreck’s play What The Constitution Means To Me, a personal tour of the landmark document at the heart of so many American divisions.
Theatre veterans were surprised to see Aaron Sorkin’s adaptation of To Kill A Mockingbird, a play about Hillary Clinton’s 2008 presidential campaign and the stage adaptation of the media satire film Network not getting best play nods, though they did earn recognition in other categories.
The nomination for Tootsie means a step closer for composer and lyricist David Yazbek to get back-to-back wins.
His show The Band’s Visit won best new musical last year.
Laurie Metcalf got an acting nod for Hillary And Clinton and if she wins the Tony this year, she will make history as the first person to win acting Tonys three years consecutively.
She won in 2018’s Three Tall Women and A Doll’s House, Part 2 in 2017.
A sweet Kiss Me, Kate and a dark Oklahoma! make up the best musical revival category; they are the only eligible nominees.
The best play revival nominees are Arthur Miller’s All My Sons, The Boys In The Band, Burn This, Torch Song and The Waverly Gallery.
Ali Stroker, the first actress who needs a wheelchair for mobility known to have appeared on a Broadway stage, earned a Tony nomination for Oklahoma!
The category of best actor in a play includes Paddy Considine from The Ferryman, Bryan Cranston in Network, Jeff Daniels in To Kill A Mockingbird, Adam Driver from Burn This and Jeremy Pope in Choir Boy.
Pope is also up for a featured role in Ain’t Too Proud — The Life And Times Of The Temptations.
The category of best actress in a play includes Annette Bening in Arthur Miller’s All My Sons, Laura Donnelly in The Ferryman, Elaine May in The Waverly Gallery, Janet McTeer in Bernhardt/Hamlet, Metcalf in Hillary And Clinton and Heidi Schreck from What The Constitution Means To Me.
Those nominated for best actor in a musical are Brooks Ashmanskas from The Prom, Derrick Baskin and Ain’t Too Proud — The Life And Times Of The Temptations, Alex Brightman from Beetlejuice, Damon Daunno in Rodgers & Hammerstein’s Oklahoma! and Santino Fontana in Tootsie.
The best leading actress in a musical are Stephanie J. Block in The Cher Show, Caitlin Kinnunen and Beth Leavel both in The Prom, Eva Noblezada in Hadestown and Kelli O’Hara in Kiss Me, Kate.
Hollywood A-listers Cranston, Driver, May and Daniels made the cut but some of their starry colleagues did not, including Kerry Washington, Armie Hammer, Ethan Hawke, Joan Allen, Michael Cera, Lucas Hedges and Keri Russell.
