Tony Awards 2016: Shows shut out entirely (‘Shuffle Along,’ ‘Bright Star,’ ‘School of Rock’ …)

Okay, admit it. Sure you love to know who won the Tonys but isn’t it fun to find out which shows were shut out as well. I don’t mean those productions that didn’t even reap nominations. Rather, which ones piled up Tony bids but left the Beacon Theater without any bragging rights.

Below, a rundown of those 11 musicals and 7 plays that got run down by others in their races.

Then there were the 10 shows that opened this season but were snubbed completely by the Tonys and not even invited to the party: the new plays “An Act of God,” “China Doll” and “Our Mother’s Brief Affair,” the new musicals “Allegiance” and “Amazing Grace” and the play revivals “Fool For Love,” “Fully Committed,” “The Gin Game,” “Old Times” and “Sylvia.”
