    It’s too early to give my full predictions because I’m still wavering on some of the categories. I’ll have to go with my gut on a lot of them.

    If you remember, which you should, I predicted The Band’s Visit sweep before the NY Times voters poll came out.

    Dear, the NY Times voters poll did not predict a Band’s Visit sweep.

    I just saw Hadestown yesterday. I really can see it sweeping most major and technical categories. Amber Gray was amazing, and I personally preferred De Shields over Page, but both were really great. I know the NYT review briefly touched on Eurydice/Orpheus’ characters not being as fully developed as Persephone/Hades, but I really thought Carney brought a lot to the show and should have been nominated. Unfortunately I saw Noblezada’s understudy (Jessie Shelton), but she was incredible so I didn’t even mind.

    They didn’t specifically say a sweep because they only poll for the top categories, but they had The Band’s Visit winning Musical, Lead Actor, and Lead Actress which would point to a sweep.

    A lot of the time the understudy is better than the actual performer, but the person who gets the role is a “name.” It’s unfortunate, but that’s show biz. I saw Ali Stroker’s understudy in Oklahoma! and I didn’t feel like I missed anything by not seeing Stroker.

    That sounds about right. I’m very rarely disappointed in an understudy. I remember I was supposed to see Jackie Burns in Wicked but I ended up seeing her understudy Laurel Harris, and I was so impressed.

    Was Ali’s understudy also a wheelchair user?

    ^Well as long as you liked her performance.  But I’m pulling for Ali to win because it’s very rare that performers with disabilities are cast.
