Musical

As the final few original productions debut on Broadway this spring, Tony Awards voters have a wide range of choices to consider as Best Musical of this past season.

The very first musical to premiere during the 2011-2012 season was the much-discussed, much-maligned "Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark" (with Reeve Carney and Jennifer Damiano) last June. Will voters embrace it in top categories or relegate it to a few technical races?

Two other original musicals are eligible but already closed: "Bonnie and Clyde" (with Jeremy Jordan and Laura Osnes) and "Lysistrata Jones" (with Patti Murin and Josh Segarra). A pair of musical revues - "Hugh Jackman: Back on Broadway" and "An Evening with Patti LuPone and Mandy Patinkin" - have also closed but received excellent notices.

The remainder of the eligible productions are premiering in March and April, so reviews and box office will help determine how much attention Tony voters will give them. Four of them are adaptations from films: "Once" (with Steve Kazee and Cristin Milioti), "Newsies" (with Jeremy Jordan), "Ghost: The Musical" (with Richard Fleeshman and Caissie Levy), and "Leap of Faith" (with Raul Esparza and Jessica Phillips). "Nice Work If You Can Get It" (with Matthew Broderick and Kelli O'Hara) features many classics from George Gershwin and Ira Gershwin.
