2016 Tony Predictions: Best Revival of A Musical and Play

Best Revival of a Musical
Will Win - The Color Purple

Could Win - She Loves Me

Commentary - Both of these productions did really well with nominations, but I think that momentum is on The Color Purple's side. If anything, most reviewers noted that it not only revived the original, but drastically improved it. Plus, it has a better shot it other categories compared to the overall support for She Loves Me.

Best Revival of a Play
Will Win - A View From the Bridge

Could Win - Long Day's Journey Into Night, The Crucible, Blackbird

Commentary - A really great crop of plays this year makes for an interesting race, particularly between A View From the Bridge and Long Day's Journey Into Night. Both have star power, both well-received. I am sticking with  A View From the Bridge for now, but I would not be surprised at a different result.
