Tony Award nominations without 'Hamilton' are murky indeed

Tony Award nominations without 'Hamilton' are murky indeed

Natasha, Pierre and the Great Comet of 1812 picked up 12 nods, with 10 for Hello, Dolly!

The Perth musician was nominated for Groundhog Day: The Musical, in which he will compete against music from the shows Come From Away, Dear Evan Hansen and Natasha, Pierre & the Great Comet of 1812. There were also revivals of plays by giants Tennessee Williams ("The Glass Menagerie") and Arthur Miller ("The Price") and a much-cheered Broadway debut by a 65-year-old Pulitzer Prize victor (Paula Vogel).

The nominations for the annual event, which celebrates the best shows on Broadway, were revealed by previous Tony Award victor Jane Krakowski and nominee Christopher Jackson on Tuesday morning.

Kline and Best Actor (Musical) nominee Andy Karl ("Groundhog Day") both played the part of Bruce Granit in a Broadway production of "On the Twentieth Century".

The Tony Awards will be hosted by Kevin Spacey in NY on June 11.

It also highlights that the Moto E will come with 5-inch display along with 2.5D protection and a fingerprint scanner. Each of the devices have previously leaked separately but today we have seen them arrive in an all in group shot.

Christopher Ashley has also been nominated for best direction of a musical and Jenn Colella, who has earned raves as a trailblazing American Airlines pilot, has been nominated for best actress in a featured role.

"Dear Evan Hansen is the favourite of the season so it's really hard to call", Martin said.

Best Featured Actress in a Play: Johanna Day (Tracey in "Sweat"); Jayne Houdyshell (Anne Marie in "A Doll's House, Part 2"); Cynthia Nixon (Birdie Hubbard in "The Little Foxes"); Condola Rashad (Emmy in "A Doll's House, Part 2"); and Michelle Wilson (Cynthia in "Sweat").

The nominations were announced Tuesday morning in NY. They are Lynn Nottage's "Sweat, " about the impact of economic decline in Reading, Pa., and Paula Vogel's "Indecent, " a backstage drama about the uproar that surrounded a 1922 production of the Yiddish play "The God of Vengeance".

Cate Blanchett, nominated for Best Actress for her role in "Carol", arrives at the 88th Academy Awards in Hollywood, California February 28, 2016. Mary Beth Peil, 76, late of The Good Wife and elegance personified as the Dowager Empress in Anastasia, is a featured actress contender for that new musical.

While traditionally Tony nominators have heavily favored recognizing shows that will still be running during the ceremony, strong showings for the now closed productions of Jitney and Falsettos proved something of a surprise.

There was little time to celebrate as "Come From Away" prepares for another show later on Tuesday.

Bette Midler's revival of Hello, Dolly! Also excluded were A Bronx Tale, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Amélie, Sunset Boulevard, and Cats, which remain open.

Other men to watch in lead roles: the pop singer Josh Groban, wowing critics and fans with his Broadway debut in "Great Comet", and the television star David Hyde Pierce, daffy and winning as the feed store owner in "Hello, Dolly!".
