The 2012 - 2013 Season: Jeff and Mike's Tony Awards Nomination Predictions

Well, the 2012 - 2013 Broadway season is in the history books.   My theatre-going buddy, Mike, and I were fortunate enough to see every new musical and musical revival.  And as is tradition for this blog, we will be making our Tony nominations predictions in all of the musical categories.  Below, you'll see our choices for what we feel SHOULD be nominated and what WILL be nominated.  We both wanted to note that this season, in several categories there were many excellent choices, and it was particularly difficult to narrow some categories down.

We shall see how we compare to the actual Tony nominations on May 1st!

Let us know what you think SHOULD be nominated, and/or guess what will be nominated by writing in via email (jkstheatrescene@yahoo.com), Twitter (@jkstheatrescene), or by leaving a comment at the bottom of this blog entry!
