The New York Times just ran a profile on Mike Faist. https://www.nytimes.com/2017/06/03/fashion/dear-evan-hansen-mike-faist-tony-awards.html?_r=0June 4, 2017 at 6:15 am #1202110529
I think the most likely boost from the screening is for Block.June 5, 2017 at 3:33 am #1202111124
I doubt that many will go. Nothing is stopping Hello Dolly! and Block isn’t even close to Rachel Bay Jones or Jenn Colella.June 5, 2017 at 10:41 am #1202111476
I think I’m changing to Jenn Colella, she has been everywhere recently and watching her perform her big song is absolutely heartbreaking.June 5, 2017 at 7:32 pm #1202111809
Originally set to close on July 23, A Doll’s House Part 2 has gotten a major extension, all the way to January 7. http://www.broadway.com/buzz/188805/tony-nominated-a-dolls-house-part-2-starring-laurie-metcalf-extends-run-into-2018/June 5, 2017 at 11:11 pm #1202111939
Metcalf will be replaced by a big star, as far as I know.June 6, 2017 at 6:07 am #1202112203
Somebody will certainly have to fill in for her, since she’s scheduled to film the Roseanne revival. Same for Condola Rashad, since she’s a cast member of the show Billions.June 6, 2017 at 6:29 am #1202112209
I would also be surprised if Chris Cooper ends up staying with it for that long.June 6, 2017 at 9:54 am #1202112355
More presenters have been announced, and they are…

Looking at my predictions I noticed that I am predicting the most “spread the wealth” Tony awards ever. I have Hello, Dolly! winning the most awards with 4, Dear Evan Hansen, Natasha, Pierre and the Great Comet of 1812, The Little Foxes with 3, Indecent, Come From Away with 2, and 1 each for Oslo (Best Play only), Present Laughter, The Price, The Play That Goes Wrong and Bandstand. That’s 11 different shows winning at least 1 Tony.June 6, 2017 at 1:47 pm #1202112597

What I find faulty about some of your predictions is that it’s going to be hard for sole nominees like The Play That Goes Wrong and The Price to end up winning. Bandstand may have two nominations, but it’s not up for Best Musical, so I doubt Tony voters are going to have much of a desire to award it.June 6, 2017 at 2:09 pm #1202112620
^I am predicting Danny DeVito, based on his being well liked and in a role that is awards baity – I had been going out on a limb and thinking Michael Aronov would win for Oslo but the Drama Desk award for DeVito has convinced me; Andy Blankenbuehler is realistic as a potential winner for Choreography – he also just won the Drama Desk award – I just don’t see who else wins, Sam Pinkleton? I just don’t see it happening; and Nigel Hook’s designs have been winning – I just don’t get how Jitney’s dull designs wind up winning the category but I guess it could happen. So we will see in less than a week what Tony voters decide.June 6, 2017 at 5:54 pm #1202112814
You’re going by the Drama Desk Awards for your predictions which is a very very bad decision.June 6, 2017 at 10:15 pm #1202112964
I’m keeping my Metcalf choice. Also, Play that Goes Wrong is the only show with just one nome that I can see winning a Tony.June 8, 2017 at 7:46 am #1202114533
I know people are scoffing at the idea of a show with few nominations winning, but I’m personally predicting Bandstand to win best choreography, mostly because of how it did in the Chita Rivera awards compared to other shows (Bandstand received nominations in every category it qualified for, including double nominations in best female dancer and male dancer categories! No other nominee can say that.)
But ultimately I think choreography is going to be pretty hard to call, as there’s reason to believe any of the nominees might win it (although, Holiday Inn seems to be by far the most unpopular choice, hah).
