Six of our 10 Experts are backing last year's Pulitzer Prize champ "Clybourne Park " to win Best Play at the Tony Awards.

The drama is a revisiting by Bruce Norris of the landscape first explored by Lorraine Hansberry in "A Raisin in the Sun." Predicting it to prevail on Tonys night are: Melissa Bernardo (Entertainment Weekly), Thom Geier (Entertainment Weekly), Andy Humm (Gay USA), Paul Sheehan (Gold Derby), David Sheward (Back Stage) and Matt Windman (amNY). 

Four pundits believe the searing domestic drama "Other Desert Cities" will bag the top Tony Award. This first play by Jon Robin Baitz to run on the rialto was a finalist for this year's Pulitzer. The Experts endorsing it are: Martin Denton (NY Theatre), Michael Musto (Village Voice), Tom O'Neil (Gold Derby) and Wayman Wong (NY Daily News).
