On Tuesday morning, actors Sutton Foster and Jesse Tyler Ferguson will announce the nominees for the 2013 Tony Awards. The award ceremony, which will honor the year's best Broadway plays and musicals, will take place on June 9.
This year's Broadway performances have been littered with celebrity A-listers. Tom Hanks (in Lucky Guy) and Bette Midler (in I'll Eat You Last) are two of the year's favorites. Another likely big-name nominee is Nathan Lane for his role as a gay performer in The Nance. One revival that is sure to get some Tony love is the much-celebrated Who's Afraid of Virgina Woolf? starring Tracy Letts and Amy Morton (surefire nominations for both of them, I predict). A musical we are likely to see on the nominations list this year is Matilda, though the four young girls who rotate the title role have already been told they are ineligible in the Best Actress category.
Last year's Tony Awards gave top prizes to the play Clybourne Park and the musical Once. By Tuesday morning we can start our speculation of who this year's top winners will be.
The nomination announcement will begin Tuesday morning at 8:30 a.m. ET. You can watch live on TonyAwards.com. Click here to go directly to the live stream link.
