Tony Award Predictions: What Will and Should Win

Tony Award Predictions: What Will and Should Win

Best Musical
What will win Hadestown

What should win Tootsie. Either one of these shows winning is a good thing, however this is about the road vote. Hadestown has my heart. It is intelligent, tuneful and spiritual, but Tootsie is a winner on the road and would represent Broadway at its best for this year. .

Best Play

What will win Hands down it will be The Ferryman by Jez Butterworth. What The Constitution Means To Me could pull an upset, but the Ferryman is a well crafted play

What should win Network and To Kill A Mockingbird should have been nominated.

Best Revival of a Musical

What will win Rodgers and Hammerstein’s Oklahoma!

What should win Fiddler on the Roof in Yiddish. This was and is the best revival.

Best Revival of a Play

What will win The Waverly Gallery by Kenneth Lonergan. This has the sentimental vote.

What should win Arthur Miller’s All My Sons was the best revival of a play.

Best Performance by an Actor in a Leading Role in a Play

What will and should win Bryan Cranston, Network. This isn’t even a contest.
