    8 of the 10 plays seem like they could potentially be nominated, which means at least 3 won’t be. These seem like a very strong group of plays this year.

    A Doll’s House, Part 2 (Lucas Hnath)
    The Encounter (Simon McBurney)
    Heisenberg (Simon Stephens)
    Indecent (Paula Vogel)
    Oh, Hello
    Oslo (J T Rogers)
    The Play That Goes Wrong (Hnery Lewis, Jonathon Sayer and Henry Shields)
    The Present (Andrew Upton)
    Significant Other (Joshua Harmon)
    Sweat (Lynn Nottage)

    Revivals:

    The Cherry Orchard
    The Front Page
    Jitney
    Les Liaisons Dangereuses
    The Little Foxes
    Present Laughter
    The Price
    Six Degrees Of Separation

    The Glass Menagerie opened last night, and the response has been quite divided…

    Good Lord, I was doing my predictions on the predictions center and those names for Best Actress in a Play!! Jesus, what a selection! Pulling hard for Blanchett though!

    As of now, my current predictions in that category are…

    Cate Blanchett-The Present
    Jennifer Ehle-Oslo
    Allison Janney-Six Degrees of Separation
    Laurie Metcalf-A Doll’s House, Part 2
    Mary-Louise Parker-Heisenberg

    It should be interesting to see if Metcalf once again ends up being the sole nominee from her production.

    Do you think Blanchett will easily win this?

    It would have to depend on how The Present does elsewhere in nominations. If Blanchett ends up being the sole nominee from that play, she likely won’t win.

    I think Janney, Metcalf, and Ehle all have a legit shot at the Best Actress Tony. Ehle is a past 2 time winner, Metcalf and Janney are favorites who have still yet to win. Plus we haven’t seen the Linney/Nixon combo yet. Blanchett should definitely get a nomination but her show will be closed and it got a lukewarm reception from critics. So its far from a sure thing. This category is going to be a battle

    I think Johanna Day not only has a strong shot at a nomination but could even win for Sweat. I have been hearing strong word of mouth for her performance and have been told she is the lead in her play. I noticed she was not in the predictions center and would def. predict her if she was there.

    I have a feeling Cate Blanchett could be left off the nominations list and really do not see her winning the award.

    I re-read the reviews for Janet McTeer and found them to be quite strong. She’s a past winner and is possibly being underestimated.

    As it stands, no one in Sweat has above the title billing. Its possible the entire ensemble will be eligible in the featured acting categories (several spring plays have this potential outcome). But if the Tony administration places her in lead then Johanna Day will be moved to the lead contenders in the prediction center

    Shouldn’t Sally Field be considered a legitimate contender for Best Actress In A Play as well?

    I think given how divided the response was to The Glass Menagerie, I have a hard time seeing Sally Field become a strong contender.
