Made you look!

Yes, the actual Tony Award nominations will be announced Tuesday at 8:30am. But we just couldn’t wait. So here’s our annual trick—er, tradition: the TONY* (*Time Out New York) nominations! Below are the 2014 Tony Award nominees as we—Theater editor David Cote and associate Theater editor Adam Feldman—would choose them. Here you will find the Broadway shows we think deserve some Tony love next week. Sure, the season has ended on several high points, such as Hedwig and Cabaret, but let's not forget, say, John Douglas Thompson in the brief fall run of A Time to Kill. Also please note: These are not our predictions of who will be nominated, but rather, who and what we think should be nominated. Enjoy and dispute in the comments section below.
