Another production with a strong showing this year is “Hamilton”, which garnered 10 nominations. Although the original cast of the groundbreaking musical has long since moved on, the production continues to draw in audiences with its innovative storytelling and catchy tunes. It’s also worth noting that this year’s nominations include nods for several actors of color, including Best Performance by a Featured Actress in a Musical for Krystal Joy Brown, who plays Eliza Schuyler.

Who won the 7 time Tony Award?

However, the biggest surprise of this year’s nominations was the absence of the musical “Dear Evan Hansen”. The show, which won six Tony Awards in 2017, including Best Musical, was expected to receive several nominations this year for its national tour. However, it was shut out completely, leading to speculation about whether the show has lost some of its appeal in the years since its initial success.

One of the most exciting categories this year is Best Play, which features a diverse lineup of nominees. “Pass Over”, a play about two Black men dealing with police violence, is one of the more topical entries. “The Inheritance”, a two-part play about the LGBTQ+ community, is another standout nominee. Also nominated is “Chicken and Biscuits”, a family comedy that has been praised for its depiction of Black family life.

Is Lea Michele nominated for a Tony?

In the category of Best Revival of a Play, the front-runner is “Death of a Salesman”, which stars Oscar winner Denzel Washington in the lead role. The production, which was initially staged in London, received rave reviews for its fresh take on the classic play. Another nominee is “The Odd Couple”, which features a gender-swapped cast.

In the acting categories, there were several surprises and snubs. One of the biggest snubs was in the category of Best Performance by a Leading Actress in a Play, where Tony winner Viola Davis failed to receive a nomination for her role in “The Piano Lesson”. However, there were several first-time nominees, including Janelle Monáe for her role in “The Color Purple” and Chris Evans for his performance in “Lobby Hero”.

Where will the 2023 Tony Awards be held?

Overall, this year’s Tony Award nominations showcase the wide range of talent and creativity in the Broadway community. With so many exciting productions and performances, it’s sure to be a thrilling ceremony when the awards are handed out on June 11th.
