    Great! However, I did notice in the list of Lead Actress in a Play contenders that Glenda Jackson is missing for King Lear.

    People seem to be overestimating To Kill a Mockingbird and underestimating The Waverly Gallery.

    Yeah, it seems that every year, people base their Tony predictions more on name recognition as opposed to the actual response to the productions and performances. As of now, The Ferryman is the frontrunner for Best Play and The Waverly Gallery is the frontrunner for Best Revival of a Play. Unless All My Sons and/or Burn This turn out to be real critical darlings.

    I realize the Tony eligibility rulings have not been decided and won’t all be for another month plus, but at quick glance, I do see an error of the two INK actor placements. Not sure who is running the Tony Awards portion of the site these days.

    Bertie Carvel is indeed the Featured Actor an Johnny Lee Miller the lead actor in the play. The Tony rulings will follow the Olivier award rulings. Carvel won the Featured Actor in a Play Olivier award and will be placed in the same category here. Chances are Johnny Lee Miller will be placed in the Lead category.

    I’m not familiar with the play Ink, but I am aware that Bertie Carvel won the Olivier as a Supporting Actor. Though I don’t know where Richard Coyle (his co-star in the London production) was eligible since he wasn’t even nominated.

    I don’t see To Kill A Mockingbird winning Best Play for two reasons:

    1. Scott Rudin and his forcing of regional theaters to cancel productions of Christopher Sergel’s version of To Kill A Mockingbird caused outrage and calls for boycotts of shows he’s producing. And any Tony voters associated with those shows, know people in those shows, or who can’t stand acts that scream of greediness, will probably refuse to vote for To Kill A Mockingbird on moral grounds, mainly to punish Rudin.

    2. Voters may feel Harper Lee’s novel and the original film starring Gregory Peck is far better.

    This would be historic. I mean, she’s so incredible I would be here for it. I would be kind of surprised if she can beat Jackson in King Lear though.. Thoughts?

    The early reports from previews for King Lear have so far been pretty underwhelming. I would not be surprised if Glenda Jackson ends up being the only nomination the production itself receives.

    I’ve revised my list of five Best Musical nominees:

    Be More Chill
    Beetlejuice

    Samantha Barks in Pretty Woman
    Stephanie J. Block in The Cher Show
    Caitlin Kinnunen in The Prom
    Beth Leavel in The Prom
    Kelli O’Hara in Kiss Me, Kate

    For Best Leading Actor in a Musical:

    Brooks Ashmanskas in The Prom
    Corbin Bleu in Kiss Me, Kate
    Alex Brightman in Beetlejuice
    Santino Fontana in Tootsie
    Andy Karl in Pretty Woman

    Best Featured Actress in a Musical:

    Stephanie Hsu in Be More Chill
    Bonnie Milligan in Head Over Heels
    Orfeh in Pretty Woman
    Angie Schworer in The Prom

    Here are my current predictions in those categories…

    Best Musical:
    Be More Chill

    I think Hadestown will win that as well as Book and Score. I’m also waiting for Beetlejuice to begin performances before deciding what my prediction will be for the fifth slot.

    Brooks Ashmanskas-The Prom
    Reeve Carney-Hadestown
    Will Chase-Kiss Me, Kate
    Damon Daunno-Oklahoma!

    Best Performance By a Leading Actress in a Musical:
    Samantha Barks-Pretty Woman
    Stephanie J. Block-The Cher Show
    Rebecca Naomi Jones-Oklahoma!
    Beth Leavel-The Prom
    Eva Noblezada-Hadestown

    Best Performance By a Featured Actor in a Musical:
    Corbin Bleu-Kiss Me, Kate
    André De Shields-Hadestown
    Patrick Page-Hadestown
    Christopher Sieber-The Prom
    Patrick Vaill-Oklahoma!

    Best Performance By a Featured Actress in a Musical:
    Amber Gray-Hadestown

    If Hadestown won it would mark the fifth year in a row where Best Book, Score and Musical went to a show that began Off-Broadway.

    I really think Elaine May is winning Leading Actress in a Play.

    Goldderby just opened up predictions, and they only have 17 out of 26 categories (the technical awards and Best Orchestrations didn’t make it in), plus they only have four slots for Best Book, Score and Musical.  And Sawyer Nunes of Gettin’ the Band Back Together wasn’t a choice for Best Featured Actor in a Musical.
