    Who do you think will win? I predict Sharon D. Clarke, and possibly Lexi Rabadi (Hannah Senesh).

    I think Zawe Ashton, Charlie Cox, and/or Tom Hiddleston will all likely be recipients for Betrayal.

    I could see Will Hochman being recognized for The Sound Inside as well.

    And based on reactions to the first week of previews, Patsy Ferran in Virginia Woolf seems a strong possibility.

    Given that Amar Ramasar appeared in the revival of Carousel two years ago, that makes him ineligible to be rewarded here for West Side Story, right? Otherwise, there’s going to be a lot more protests against him.

    Yes, he’s ineligible. Though I believe Shereen Pimentel and/or Yesenia Ayala are eligible given that West Side Story marks their first time opening a show on Broadway in major principal roles.

    Sharon D. Clarke’s co-star Samantha Williams could show up here as well.

    I suspect other strong contenders will be Andrew Burnap and Paul Hilton (‘The Inheritance’), Mark Addy and Gabby French (‘Hangmen’), Andrea Macaset, Brittney Mack, and Samantha Pauly (‘SIX’), Ben McKenzie (‘Grand Horizons’), Chantal Thuy (‘Linda Vista’), and Dharon E. Jones (‘West Side Story’).

    I believe they have slightly bent the rules before to allow someone to receive this award if their only other credit was an understudy or replacement (since they didn’t debut the character), as the rules now read “for their significant debut performance”. If they go that route then Lauren Patten (‘Jagged Little Pill’) could be a good choice (her one previous bway credit is an understudy/replacement for ‘Fun Home’).
