If y’all have been around SGSB for a bit, you probably know how much I love Broadway musicals. I try to make it up to NYC to see as many shows as a I can each year and the second Sunday of June is like a holiday to me because it’s the TONY Awards!!!

I was fortunate to see seven of the shows eligible for this year’s TONY Awards. And I keep joking that I made my Broadway debut in the Great Comet of 1812, because I was asked to come up on stage to deliver a letter to Natasha (the main female character played by Denee Benton). So, if they win….I’m going to take credit and celebrate my TONY win….hehehe….totally kidding, but it was a really neat experience that I will never forget!!

Since today is one of my favorite days, I wanted to share my predictions of who will take home the TONY and share an outfit I would love to wear if I was attending in person. My predictions are definitely biased based on the shows I was able to see, which is why I am only going to share predictions for the musical category since I did not see any of the nominated plays. And without further ado….

Best Musical: 
“Come From Away”
“Dear Evan Hansen”
“Groundhog Day The Musical”
“Natasha, Pierre & The Great Comet of 1812”

Ultimately, I think The Great Comet will win this category because of their innovation. The whole theater is used in the performance and there is a ton of audience interaction. Most of the actors are on stage throughout the whole performance and rarely seemed to break character.

Best Book of a Musical:
“Come From Away” — Irene Sankoff and David Hein
“Dear Evan Hansen” — Steven Levenson
“Groundhog Day The Musical” — Danny Rubin
“Natasha, Pierre & The Great Comet of 1812” — Dave Malloy

Best Original Score:
“Come From Away” — Music & Lyrics: Irene Sankoff and David Hein
“Dear Evan Hansen” — Music & Lyrics: Benj Pasek & Justin Paul
“Groundhog Day The Musical” — Music & Lyrics: Tim Minchin
“Natasha, Pierre & The Great Comet of 1812” — Music & Lyrics: Dave Malloy

Best Revival of a Musical:
“Falsettos”
“Hello, Dolly!”
“Miss Saigon”

Best Performance by an Actor in a Leading Role in a Musical:
Christian Borle, “Falsettos”
Josh Groban, “Natasha, Pierre & The Great Comet of 1812”
Andy Karl, “Groundhog Day The Musical”
David Hyde Pierce, “Hello, Dolly!”
Ben Platt, “Dear Evan Hansen”

This one definitely will go to Ben Platt. Now, I may be biased (see this post here about my love for Dear Evan Hansen), but being able to put that much emotion while singing into each performance is beyond incredible.

Best Performance by an Actress in a Leading Role in a Musical:
Denee Benton, “Natasha, Pierre & The Great Comet of 1812”
Christine Ebersole, “War Paint”
Patti LuPone, “War Paint”
Bette Midler, “Hello, Dolly!”
Eva Noblezada, “Miss Saigon”

Best Performance by an Actor in a Featured Role in a Musical:

Stephanie J. Block, “Falsettos”
Jenn Colella, “Come From Away”

Best Scenic Design of a Musical:
Rob Howell, “Groundhog Day The Musical”
David Korins, “War Paint”

Peter Darling and Ellen Kane, “Groundhog Day The Musical”
Kelly Devine, “Come From Away”
Denis Jones, “Holiday Inn, The New Irving Berlin Musical”
Sam Pinkleton, “Natasha, Pierre & The Great Comet of 1812”
