The nominations for the 2022 Tony Awards were announced this morning, honoring productions from Broadway's first full season since the COVID shutdown two years ago. The awards are given out annually by the Broadway League and the American Theatre Wing to salute outstanding achievements in 26 categories of Broadway artistry.

Actors Adrienne Warren and Joshua Henry revealed the nominees live on YouTube at 9am today. Among the 2021-22 Broadway productions earning the most nominations were the new musicals A Strange Loop (11), MJ (10), Paradise Square (10), Six (9) and Girl from the North Country (7); the new plays The Lehman Trilogy (9), Clyde's (5) and Hangmen (5); and the revivals Company (9), for colored girls who have considered suicide/when the rainbow is enuf (7), The Music Man (6) and The Skin of Our Teeth (6).

As previously announced, the Tonys will also award five Honors for Excellence in the Theatre.
