The Tony Awards Administration Committee held their first meeting of the season to confirm the eligibility of Paramour and Cats. They also confirmed that the newly refurbished Hudson Theatre will be a Tony-eligible theater. http://www.playbill.com/article/tony-administration-committee-rules-on-cats-and-paramourOctober 14, 2016 at 12:44 pm #1201935299
Looks like those two shows will have to wait for the next eligibility meeting.October 14, 2016 at 2:41 pm #1201935346
womp guess Andy Blankenbuehler will have to console himself with that Hamilton Tony.
I’m surprised only 2 shows were discussed. Holiday Inn and The Encounter have been open for a few weeks now.
I guess they didn’t discuss them because they’ve only been open for a weeks whereas Paramour opened way back in May and Cats opened in July.October 25, 2016 at 11:08 am #1201939618
* Glen Close- Sunset Boulevard
* Bette Midler- Hello, Dolly
* Patti LuPone- War Paint
* Christine Ebersole- War Paint
Four Tony-winning actresses (Midler for an achievement in theater) in the running this year, and four young ladies (30 and younger) trying to take them down:
* Eva Noblezada- Miss Saigon
* Denee Benton- Natasha, Pierre and the Great Comet of 1812
* Christy Altomare- Anastasia
* Phillipa Soo- Ameile
This is just like the Oscars this year: THE WOMEN ARE HERE TO DOMINATE IN THE MOST COMPETITIVE LEAD ACTRESS CATEGORY IN YEARS!

Glenn Close actually won’t be eligible for next year’s Tony Awards because she already won the Tony for playing Norma Desmond in the original production of Sunset Boulevard in 1995.
So Patti LuPone (who originated the role of Norma Desmond in London before being fired by Andrew Lloyd Webber) should feel really lucky about that.October 25, 2016 at 4:13 pm #1201939730
I don’t know if Patti LuPone is a Tony voter (I’d be surprised if she isn’t) but I’m guessing she won’t vote for Sunset Boulevard in any category on her ballot if it’s nominated for anything. I wonder if she snubs all Andrew Lloyd Webber shows on the ballot.December 13, 2016 at 4:44 pm #1201968625
So of the productions that opened so far this season, what do you think has shots at nominations this spring?

Nathan Lane eligible in Featured Actor for The Front Page??? Odd…January 28, 2017 at 6:19 am #1201997136
I haven’t seen The Front Page, but from I’ve heard, Nathan Lane doesn’t even appear in the three-act comedy until near the end of Act II. So I knew he was going to be eligible as a Featured Actor.
