With this year’s Tony Awards airing on CBS tonight, we’ll be taking a look back at last year’s race which saw a critical juggernaut winning in the end, though what may have likely been the alternative surprised many skeptics when it opened early on in the 2017-18 season. And the Tony Almost Went to…SPONGEBOB SQUAREPANTS
I wonder what the one for this year will be.June 8, 2019 at 6:04 am #1202928052
Refresh my memory: was Amber Gray nominated last year for the Drama Desk award?
I don’t recall but off-Broadway typically don’t win over broadway ones in the acting categories. Steven Skybell in leading would be the exception not the rule (and he won only the OCC). In an odd twist Amber was eligible for both Hadestown and Natasha, Pierre and the Great Comet in the same season and I suspect she canceled herself out.
Amber wasn’t eligible for the Drama Desks so we’ll never know what would’ve happened. Hadestown was ineligible for musical so again we don’t know.June 7, 2019 at 4:21 pm #1202927586
Not so fast on featured actress. Amber Gray won the OCC. She was ineligible for the Drama Desks since she was eligible for the last production.June 2, 2019 at 5:34 am #1202920262
Riedel is the same guy who predicted Best Musical would go to Newsies instead of Once, Matilda instead of Kinky Boots, Beautiful instead of Gentleman’s Guide, and An American in Paris instead of Fun Home.
Riedel has a knack for picking every show but the eventual winner. The year of Dear Evan Hansen he had to be persuaded and cajoled at the last minute into admitting Dear Evan Hansen was winning.May 30, 2019 at 9:05 am #1202916476

I think The Prom might win music and lyrics and I will make the very bold prediction that Hadestown sweeps every one of its nominations. I think Chavkin will win. I think Sarah Stiles has a great shot here in featured actress. And in revival look out for Fiddler.May 30, 2019 at 8:48 am #1202916457
Featured Actor in a musical could literally go to anyone in the category.May 29, 2019 at 5:34 pm #1202915699
I’m sorry but I just find it appalling at what happened to Amber Gray this year. Everyone was predicting her up until like a month ago. And than Michael Musto planted the flag for Ali Stroker and had her predicted and it now seems everyone has followed his path. Just awful. Gray absolutely deserved to win. The production of Oklahoma! was just…odd. Gray was magic.
Ben Brantley did too. However Time Out New York released their predictions and said they think Amber will win.
