Jeff and Mike's "If I Was a Tony Nominator" Lists!

Before I start today, I want to take a moment to thank the many of you that have have come back to my blog after my time away.  I really appreciate it! (Tell your friends!)  And thank you to to those of you who have taken time to write with comments and questions, too.

Lately, one question I've gotten a lot is whether or not Mike and I will do our annual Tony nominations guesses/picks.  Well, this year, he and I have only gotten around to seeing 6 of the eligible productions prior to tomorrow's announcement: Three Tall Women, Prince of Broadway, The Band's Visit, My Fair Lady, Once On This Island, and Carousel. (We are seeing Angels in America, Mean Girls and Frozen this weekend!) So, we decided to just talk about those six shows and list those shows, performers and creatives that we'd nominate if we were on the Tony committee.  We did these lists separately, and it's interesting how similar our picks are.  Be sure to mail (jkstheatrescene@yahoo.com), Tweet (@jkstheatrescene) or leave a comment below telling us how you think we did!

So, how'd we do?

  • Mike was the big winner: 87.8% of his guesses were correct. And he got all 11 of The Band's Visit's nominatons exactly right!
  • Jeff didn't do too badly: 80.4% of his guesses were correct.
