Tony Nominations Cheat Sheet
By Ben Pesner
The Tony AwardThe Tony Award

To help you get ready for our live webcast of the 2013 Tony Award® nominations on April 30, we thought you would enjoy seeing a list of some of the shows and performers who are eligible for Tonys this season. The most eagerly-anticipated nominations often come in the overall production categories, as well as the Actor/Actress in a Leading Role categories. If you don't see the performer you are looking for, it probably means he or she will be considered in one of the four Featured Role categories.

For more about each production, check out our Spotlight Series.

Jesse Tyler Ferguson and past-winner Sutton Foster will announce the nominations on Tuesday, April 30 at 8:30a.m. ET. You can watch the announcement live here at TonyAwards.com, as well as on CBS (selected categories) nationally and NY1 cable in the NYC area.  We’ll also be live Tweeting the nominations @TheTonyAwards. 

The American Theatre Wing's 67th annual Tony Awards® will be broadcast on Sunday, June 9 on CBS, live from Radio City Music Hall. The Tonys are presented by The Broadway League and the American Theatre Wing.
