The Tony AwardThe Tony Award

The Tony Awards Administration Committee met on October 25 for the first time this season to decide the eligibility of Broadway productions for the American Theatre Wing's 2013 Tony Awards®, presented by The Broadway League and the American Theatre Wing. The Committee will meet a total of four times throughout the 2012-2013 season to decide the eligibility for the 2013 Tony Awards. 

The Committee considered four shows at this meeting from among the Broadway productions that opened this summer and autumn (they will discuss other shows at subsequent meetings). The shows considered are, in opening-night order: Harvey, Bring It On: The Musical, Chaplin, and An Enemy of the People.

The Committee announced the following:

  • Jessica Hecht and Charles Kimbrough will be considered eligible in the Best Performance by an Actress/Actor in a Featured Role in a Play categories for their respective performances in Harvey.
  • Taylor Louderman and Adrienne Warren will each be considered eligible in the Best Performance by an Actress in a Leading Role in a Musical category for their performances in Bring It On: The Musical.   
  • Rob McClure will be considered eligible in the Best Performance by an Actor in a Leading Role in a Musical category for his performance in Chaplin.
  • Boyd Gaines will be considered eligible in the Best Performance by an Actor in a Leading Role in a Play category for his performance in An Enemy of the People.

All other decisions were consistent with the opening night credits.

What that means: In general, unless the committee has determined otherwise, performers listed ABOVE the title may be eligible in the Leading Actor/Actress categories; if a performers is listed BELOW the title, he or she is considered a "Featured" performer.

The 2013 Tony Nominations will be announced in the spring. Check back for more information.
