Tony Award Contenders: Best Musical

Leap of Faith
Nice Work if You Can Get It
Bonnie and Clyde
Ghost the Musical
Lysistrata Jones
Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark

Commentary - I am not sure how many nominees there will be as I am not yet fluent in Tony elibility. But many of the pundits have predicted four nominees. Leap of Faith, Once, and Nice Work if You Can Get It seem to be the perceived frontrunners. However the last spot (or two) seems to be split between those that think Newsies, and lesser amounts of coverage for Ghost the Musical and Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark. If I had to bet money, it would be on Newsies, and maybe Ghost, but Spider-Man seems to be too controversial, and has not received the best reviews, making me think it will not get any or little Tony Attention.


  1. Any thoughts on "Peter and the Starcatcher?"

  2. I think it just premeired. I will look at some reviews. I will be providing my nomination predictions starting at the end of this week. So once I read some reviews, I will let you know as to whether I think it is a Tony contender. Just from the look of it, it looks like it could be something worthy of awards.

  3. To answer your question, I hadn't realized that this was posted under Best Musical. Peter and the Starcatcher is a play, and yes I will most likely be predictining it for Best Play, as its reviews seem to be pretty good!
