2013 Tony Award predictions

Handicapping Broadway’s highest honor? Here are 2013 Tony Award picks you can bet on.

After five weeks of buildup, the Tony Awards will be awarded on Sunday—and theater fans should brace themselves for a more suspenseful broadcast than usual. Sure, a few of the winners are gimmes (start practicing your speech now, Andrea Martin), but most of the races are nail-biters. Will Best Musical go to the thorny but cute English import (Matilda) or the precision-tooled American crowd-pleaser (Kinky Boots)? Can the still-running The Trip to Bountiful wrest Best Revival from its already-closed rivals? And who will nose ahead in the tightly matched field for Best Featured Actor in a Play? We’ve gazed into our cloudy crystal ball and we've ranked the nominees below, from most to least likely to win. (How do they compare to your own votes in our readers' poll?) To show which races are especially competitive, we’ve assigned them symbols accordingly.
