Tony Awards Nominations List – Updating Live
Refresh for updates…The nominations for the 2020 Tony Awards will be announced virtually at noon ET by actor James Monroe Iglehart. Deadline will keep you up to speed on the nominations as they happen.
For How To Watch the nominations, go here. This post will provide and update the list of nominees.
Eighteen productions have been deemed eligible for Tony nominations this year, a fraction compared to last season’s 34, the slimmed-down roster due of course to Broadway’s COVID-19 pandemic shutdown.
When theaters went dark on March 12, the usual deluge of spring openings were postponed or canceled altogether. Three productions – the musicals Six, West Side Story and Girl from the North Country – had already begun preview performances but were not around long enough to accommodate the required number of Tony voters.
With the season’s three planned musical revivals – West Side Story, which had opened, and Company and Caroline, Or Change, which had not – ineligible, the category was eliminated this year.
Freestyle Love Supreme and David Byrne’s American Utopia chose not to invite voters, though both popular productions could be eligible for special awards.
A date for the actual Tony ceremony has not yet been announced, though some insiders are thinking December. The event almost certainly will be entirely virtual on a streaming platform rather than its longtime television broadcast berth on CBS.
The 18 eligible productions for nominations (10 new plays, four new musicals, four play revivals) are:
Frankie and Johnny in the Clair de Lune
Moulin Rouge! The Musical
Sea Wall/A Life
The Height of the Storm
The Great Society
The Rose Tattoo
The Lightning Thief: The Percy Jackson Musical
The Sound Inside
Tina – The Tina Turner Musical
A Christmas Carol
Jagged Little Pill
My Name is Lucy Barton
A Soldier’s Play
