    Lauren Patten is serious competition for Jagged Little Pill.

    We also don’t even know who’ll be playing Anita in the upcoming revival of West Side Story yet. That role has done quite well in the past for Rita Moreno (at the Oscars) and Karen Olivo (at the Tonys).

    We don’t know anything about the production either. It might be polarizing and that could work to the detriment of the actors. Ivo Van Hove is really controversial. They’re taking the Robbins choreography out and that might rub people the wrong way. We shall see.

    Marisa Tomei could be the frontrunner for Best Actress In A Play if the revival of The Rose Tattoo gets universal raves.

    Laura Linney playing two roles My Name is Lucy Barton could finally land her that much overdue Tony win as well.

    Jesse Tyler Ferguson could also earn his first Tony nomination next year for the revival of Take Me Out.

    Very interesting that Katori Hall is a member given that she is one of the three co-book writers behind Tina: The Tina Turner Musical, which is coming to Broadway this fall.

    She’ll most likely recuse herself for the musical categories or she’ll only be able to vote in the play categories.

    I thought if someone recuses themselves, that means they can’t nominate ANY of the categories. But I may be wrong. Can someone clarify?

    ^I know that was at least the case with Stephen Karam back in 2016. He was on the nominating committee for the 2015-16 season, but when it was announced that his play, The Humans, was moving to Broadway, he had to withdraw.

    So far there are four new musicals coming to the Main Stem this season: Moulin Rouge!Tina—The Tina Turner Musical, Jagged Little Pill and Girl from the North Country, all of which have score consisting mainly of reused music. Then there’s the Neil Diamond bio-musical coming to Broadway. Will there be a Best Score Tony this year? I hope The Secret Life of Bees comes to Broadway this season so there will be at least one new musical with an original score. Plus, it’s run is winding down and tickets are steep so if it came to Broadway I would be able to see it.
