    What’s your take Jeffrey? I think this list is much less nutty than I’ve seen in the past.

    It is interesting how they showed quite a bit of love to Head Over Heels. Not to mention that Jeff Daniels wasn’t even nominated for To Kill a Mockingbird.

    It does seem more normal than in past years where very panned shows got tons of noms though. And the acting categories are very difficult here since they’re competing with off-broadway performers. Leaving that aside what huge differences do you see with the Tonys? (I personally don’t think Beetlejuice will get that many nominations and I do think Jeff Daniels will be nominated. I also think Mary Testa will get in featured actress.)

    If Hadestown petitioned and got in for the OCC then I wonder if the Drama Desks will also let it compete this year. By the way, everything I’ve said I’ve been right about so everyone should always listen to me.

    It has changed a great deal since off-Broadway and I do wonder if that might be the case at the Drama Desks. I mentioned that to a friend of mine today and he said it’s a distinct possibility.

    I love Hadestown but I detest Andre. He consistently sings off pitch and mugs and is off the beat. Apparently the person downtown was better. In the myth Hermes is younger. I’d have tried for James Monroe Iglehart or even Leslie Odom, Jr. I think the understudy is quite a bit younger. I’m hoping to see him at some point. I kind of want Jeremy Pope to win if Patrick isn’t nominated for the Tony. (Also Andre is leading not featured.)

    I think Head Over Heels will go down the same path as shows like American Psycho, Bright Star and Tuck Everlasting: a lot of love at here, but little love at the Tonys. My guess is it gets nominated for scenic design and costume design, and that’s it.

    Bright Star actually received 5 Tony Award nominations (including Best Musical).

    I’m very interested in seeing where the Tony committee puts Andre. I absolutely loved him and so did the audience when I saw it. I think he’ll win in whatever category he is placed. I am leaning towards him being put in featured, but the producers may not want him to compete against Patrick so it will give them both a chance to win. Reeve has no shot at winning.

    True, but the OCC’s gave it way more love in terms of nominations.

    While there were tons of surprises the biggest for me were the two Featured Actor nominations for John Behlmann and Reg Rogers for Tootsie – I don’t have either of them in my predictions, are either of them likely to be nominated on the 30th for a Tony award?
