In a highly-disrupted year on Broadway as elsewhere, it is good to finally discover the nominations for the 2020 Tony Awards.
Musicals-wise, the Alanis Morissette musical JAGGED LITTLE PILL earned 15 nominations, with at least one nomination in every eligible category (including six for the show’s principal performers). MOULIN ROUGE! followed, earning 14 nominations. TINA;THE TINA TURNER MUSICAL rounds out the nominees in this year’s Best Musical category.
Play-wise, Matthew Lopez’s THE INHERITANCE and Jeremy O. Harris’ SLAVE PLAY earned 11 and 12 nominations, respectively. Also nominated are Bess Wohl’s GRAND HORIZONS, Adam Rapp’s THE SOUND INSIDE, and SEA WALL / A LIFE by Simon Stephens and Nick Payne.
Currently the date for the virtual awards presentation has not been decided, but when it is I shall let you know.
