The rock revival “Hedwig and the Angry Inch” will be the top Tony winner according to the combined predictions of our Experts, Editors, and Users. It’s forecast to win five of its nominations: Best Musical Revival, Musical Actor (Neil Patrick Harris), Musical Featured Actress (Lena Hall), Musical Lighting Design, and Musical Sound Design.
Not far behind will be “Gentleman’s Guide to Love and Murder,” this year’s top Tony nominee with 10 bids. Our predictors expect it to take home Best Musical, Best Book of a Musical, Direction of a Musical, and Musical Costume Design.
“Beautiful,” about the life and career of singer-songwriter Carole King, will win Best Musical Actress for its star, Jessie Mueller, while James Monroe Iglehart gets best odds to take Musical Featured Actor for “Aladdin,” the only expected win for the Disney musical.
Despite closing early, “Bridges of Madison County” is favored to win a pair of honors: Best Musical Score and Best Orchestrations.
Voters will spread the wealth in the play categories according to our racetrack odds, with “The Glass Menagerie” leading the way with a trio of wins: Best Play Revival, Play Featured Actress (Celia Keenan-Bolger), and Play Lighting Design.
That will leave just one win for “Act One“: Best Play Scenic Design.
