The 2017 TONY* nominations

This morning we are proud to announce the annual TONY nominations, honoring the best work in the 2016-17 Broadway season. And to this announcement, we add our annual disclaimer: By TONY we mean us, i.e. Time Out New York. Each year, we pick our own slate of nominees: the Broadway shows and artists that we here at Time Out New York, or TONY, would choose to nominate for Tony Awards if we were the Tony Awards Nominating Committee, which we are not. (The actual Tony noms will be announced at 8:30am on Tuesday, May 2.) Note that these are not our predictions of who will be nominated for the real Tonys, but who we think should be nominated. It's been an unusually full season, and in some categories we had a mighty hard time choosing among many worthy contenders. But choose we did—in accordance with Tony regulations and eligibility rulings—and here are the results. Congratulations to all the 2017 TONY nominees!
