A Strange Loop
Last time A Strange Loop was in New York (for its 2019 Off-Broadway world premiere), Michael R. Jackson racked up Off-Broadway awards and a Pulitzer Prize for his musical. So now that it’s looped back to the city for its Broadway debut, it’s no surprise that it got the most Tony nominations this year with 11. A Strange Loop is in the running for Best Musical, Best Book, Best Score, and more, and three of its performers — all of whom are making their Broadway debuts — are up for acting awards!
There’s a little slice of paradise on Broadway right now, and it’s called Paradise Square. This new musical got 10 Tony Award nominations, including Best Musical, for telling the story of how the harmony between free Blacks and Irish immigrants in 19th-century America was threatened by the Draft Riots. See Paradise Square if you want to see a high-energy mega-musical and a star-making performance from Joaquina Kalukango, who’s snagged her second Tony nomination for playing the role. Her co-stars Sidney DuPont and A.J. Shively got Best Featured Actor nods for their performances, too!
MJ The Musical
MJ The Musical is nothing short of a thriller, as evidenced by its 10 Tony nominations. To name a few, the show is in the running for Best Musical, and Myles Frost is up for Best Leading Actor for his showstopping turn as Michael Jackson. This electric show combines all of the King of Pop’s major hits with electrifying choreography (Christopher Wheeldon was nominated for both choreographing and directing) to tell the story of his life and career.
Girl From The North Country
Whether you’re from the north, the south, or anywhere in between, you’ll be moved by this deeply emotional Best Musical nominee. The songs of Bob Dylan underscore an original story about the guests and owners of an inn who change each other’s lives in various ways. Conor McPherson was nominated for both directing and writing the book for Girl From The North Country, and two of its actors got nominated: Mare Winningham, for Best Leading Actress, and Jeannette Bayardelle, for Best Featured Actress.
Another hundred people — and probably lots more — are going to want to see Company now that it’s a nine-time Tony Award nominee, so get your tickets now! The bachelor Bobby from Stephen Sondheim’s musical is reimagined as the bachelorette Bobbie for this revival, who’s trying to decide whether she wants to settle down. Besides getting a Best Musical Revival nomination, three actors are up for awards: Matt Doyle is nominated for Best Featured Actor, and both Patti LuPone and Jennifer Simard are nominated for Best Featured Actress.
The Six Queens may sing that they spent too many years lost in history, but there’s no way that Six will get lost in history now that it’s a Best Musical nominee! It would have been cool if Six got six nominations, but it did even better, getting eight. If all you wanna do at a Broadway show is have fun and rock out to high-energy feminist pop songs, then Six is for you. There’s no better time to join the Queendom!
POTUS: Or, Behind Every Great Broadway Show are Three Tony Nominations. The play’s actual full title is POTUS: Or, Behind Every Great Dumbass are Seven Women Trying to Keep Him Alive, and two of those women (and the show’s set designer) snagged Tony nominations: Julie White, who already has one Tony under her belt, and Rachel Dratch, in her Broadway debut! They’re but two parts of a star-studded ensemble playing the frazzled, chaotic inner circle of a problematic president.
A Tony nomination is on the way, dears! Well, actually, it’s already come to Rob McClure, who plays Daniel Hillard/Mrs. Doubtfire in this musical comedy. Based on the 1993 Robin Williams film, the show follows an out-of-work, divorced dad who wants to see his kids more, so he disguises himself as Mrs. Doubtfire and gets himself hired as their nanny.
Will Martin McDonagh, who recently won an Oscar for writing Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri, win a Tony next for writing Hangmen? We’ll have to hang around and see. The darkly comedic Best Play nominee follows hangman-turned-pub-owner Harry (Tony nominee David Threlfall) and a mysterious stranger named Mooney (Tony nominee and Game of Thrones star Alfie Allen), who arrives as a haunting reminder of Harry’s past.
Check into the Plaza Suite to see Sarah Jessica Parker and Matthew Broderick live! The celebrity couple plays three fictional couples weathering relationship highs and lows in the Plaza Hotel’s Suite 719, and this being a farcical Neil Simon rom-com, there are laughs in every corner. Plus, you’ll get to see Jane Greenwood’s glorious Tony-nominated costumes — all we’ll tell you now is that in Act 2, Parker looks like Carrie-Bradshaw-meets-Blair-Waldorf and Broderick looks like Austin Powers.
The Music Man
The Music Man certainly hasn’t got trouble — in fact, it’s got a bunch of Tony nominations and is doing better than ever. Its stars Hugh Jackman and Sutton Foster both got nominated, if you needed any reason to get a ticket to see these spectacular, seasoned stage stars in a timeless love story. And the show is nominated for Best Musical Revival, too. This calls for a big parade — complete with 76 trombones, of course.
Take Me Out
Back in 2003, the premiere Broadway production of Take Me Out won Best Play and Best Featured Actor. So it almost feels like deja vu that the 2022 revival is nominated for Best Play Revival and has not one, but three actors in the Best Featured Actor race: Jesse Williams, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, and Michael Oberholtzer. Fun fact: Ferguson is playing the role that Denis O’Hare won the Tony for in 2003. Who knows what curveballs could be thrown this year?
for colored girls who have considered suicide/when the rainbow is enuf
Ntozake Shange’s choreopoem is just as relevant now as it was back in 1976, as evidenced by its multiple Tony nominations including Best Revival of a Play. Seven women recite poetry and perform movement about the diverse experiences of Black womanhood, with all its pain, joy, and everything in between. Among them is Kenita R. Miller, who got a Tony nomination for playing Lady in Red. Plus, director/choreographer Camille A. Brown — the first Black female director/choreographer on Broadway in decades — got doubly nominated for doing both.
The Skin of Our Teeth
Thornton Wilder’s groundbreaking play was a Pulitzer Prize winner in 1942, and in 2022, it’s a six-time Tony Award nominee. This epic show follows the Antrobus family and their maid, Sabina (Tony nominee Gabby Beans) as they survive an ice age, a war, and a flood over the course of thousands of years. Lileana Blain-Cruz, a big name on the Off-Broadway experimental theatre scene, has gotten to show the Broadway world her skills bringing the weird and wacky to life — and she, too, got a Tony nomination for it. So did set designer Adam Rigg — if you’ve ever wanted to see a working carnival slide on a Broadway stage, have we got the show for you.
Sam Rockwell may play a small-time hustler in American Buffalo, but he’s a big-time name — besides being an Oscar winner for Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri, he’s also a Tony nominee. American Buffalo also got nominated for Best Revival of a Play, Best Direction of a Play, and Best Scenic Design of a Play, and the show stars Rockwell alongside Laurence Fishburne and Darren Criss as they scheme to steal a valuable buffalo nickel.
How I Learned to Drive
How I Learned to Drive leading actors Mary-Louise Parker and David Morse received awards back in 1997 the first time they steered Paula Vogel’s play off Broadway. Now they’re at the wheel again, and they both got Leading Actor/Actress nominations, respectively, for reprising their roles. This Pulitzer-winning drama sees Li’l Bit (Parker), an adult woman, grapple with traumatic memories of her Uncle Peck’s (Morse) years of sexual abuse.
Don’t wait one more minute to see this Best Play nominee! Pulitzer Prize winner Tracy Letts is back on Broadway with his newest play, The Minutes, about dark secrets that come to light at a town council meeting. Letts himself sits on the council along a host of stage and screen talent, like Waitress star Jessie Mueller, Schitt’s Creek star Noah Reid, and Orange is the New Black star Blair Brown.
