Tony Awards Forecast: Kinky and Matty (and Masha and Spike)

Email a Friend

The scene is now set for Broadway’s big night, the 67th annual Tony Awards. The nominations were announced Tuesday and among the musicals up for the most awards are Kinky Boots, Matilda, Pippin, and Rodgers and Hammerstein’s Cinderella.

The most-nominated plays include Golden Boy, Lucky Guy, Vanya and Sonja and Masha and Spike, The Nance and Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf. New York Times theater critic Charles Isherwood does a bit of Tony handicapping for you and names a few of the performers who were properly recognized and some who were, perhaps, unfairly overlooked by the nominating committee.

Consider this your warm-up for the Tony Awards, which will be broadcast on June 9.
