    As of now, I’d say the only sure things for Best Musical nominations are Girl From the North Country, Six, and A Strange Loop. It’s likely gonna come down to the latter two for the win. Since that category will have nine contenders this year, that means it will automatically have five nomination slots. So what do I think will take the last two? The responses I’ve read for the out-of-town tryout for Paradise Square say the show has potential. So we’ll see how that fares in New York. As MJ is currently in previews, the responses I’ve read so far appear to be favorable. Mr. Saturday Night feels like a sight unseen to me at his point. Maybe Flying Over Sunset could sneak in if the nominating committee respects it enough for its originality even if they don’t necessarily 100% agree with the end results. Maybe Mrs. Doubtfire could sneak in as one of those types of contenders where enough nominators apparently enjoyed it more than the critics did or just there as filler. I think we can all agree that Diana has no shot at all.

    If nominations were to be announced tomorrow, I think the Best Play nominees would be Clyde’s, Dana H., Is This a Room, The Lehman Trilogy (which I agree is currently the frontrunner), and Pass Over. Although Skeleton Crew, which just began previews at Manhattan Theatre Club, could be a contender. The Minutes received a pretty favorable response when it was originally in previews almost two years ago, so that’s a possibility.

    For Best Revival of a Musical, Caroline, or Change and Company are currently the only two locks for nominations in that category. The latter I think is frontrunner right now. The responses I’ve read for The Music Man so far may have been good, but it’s really more around the good but not great range. Although it’s possible for the show to get better throughout previews. Following the first preview of his 1992 revival of Guys & Dolls, director Jerry Zaks managed to get that show in much better shape by opening night. As of now, Funny Girl is the only sight unseen of this year’s crop.

    The only two sure things for Best Revival of a Play nominations right now are Lackawanna Blues and Trouble in Mind. The latter of which I think is currently the frontrunner.

    When do you expect the Tonys to take place in 2022? Do you expect a date in mid-June or probably a later date, which for some reason makes more sense to me?

    At this point, I’m expecting the Tonys to take place sometime in June as usual unless we hear otherwise. Though it is worth noting that the latest Broadway opening currently scheduled right now is Macbeth on April 28th. In normal years, the end of April would be the cut-off date Tony eligibility.

    For Best Musical I’m going with Girl from the North Country, Paradise Square, Sing Street, Six, A Strange Loop. For Best Score: Flying Over Sunset, Mr. Saturday Night, Six, Skeleton Crew, A Strange Loop. BTW, do you think Best Score should be split into separate categories for musicals and straight plays?

    If a Tony for Best Original Score of a Play were to exist, I imagine it would easily be presented off of the main telecast.

    I don’t think they’ll ever split the category because I don’t think there are enough plays every year that could qualify to make the split justifiable.

    The same could be said about new musical scores. There could be a season like 2017-18 where 7 new musicals opened on Broadway, but only four of them had at least 40% new material in their scores to qualify. Not to mention that of all the new musicals that opened in the 2009-10 Broadway season, only two of them (The Addams Family and Memphis) actually had original scores.
