2012 Tony Predictions: Lead Actress in a Musical
Will Win/Should Win - Audra McDonald "The Gershwin's Porgy and Bess" Could Win - Jan Maxwell "Follies" or Cristin Miloti "Once"
Commentary - Maxwell and Miloti both do great work in their respective roles, but Audra McDonald is a Tony powerhouse, having won four previous times, and her performance in the revival of Porgy and Bess is apparently jaw-dropping. I will honestly be shocked if anyone other than McDonald wins this award.
