The Tony AwardThe Tony Award

The Tony Awards Administration Committee met on January 9 for the second time this season to decide the eligibility of Broadway productions for the American Theatre Wing's 2014 Tony Awards®, presented by The Broadway League and the American Theatre Wing. The Committee will meet regularly throughout the 2013-2014 Broadway season to make eligibility determinations.

The Committee considered 14 shows at this meeting from among the Broadway productions that opened this autumn. They will discuss other shows at subsequent meetings. The shows considered are, in opening-night order: The Glass Menagerie, Big Fish, A Night with Janis Joplin, The Winslow Boy,  A Time to Kill, The Snow Geese, Betrayal, After Midnight, Twelfth Night, Richard III, A Gentleman's Guide to Love and Murder, Macbeth, No Man's Land, and Waiting for Godot.

The Committee announced the following:

  • Celia Keenan-Bolger and Brian J. Smith will be considered eligible in the Best Performance by a Actress/Actor in a Featured Role in a Play categories respectively for their performances in The Glass Menagerie.
  • Norbert Leo Butz will be considered eligible in the Best Performance by an Actor in a Leading Role in a Musical category for his performance in Big Fish.
  • Mary Bridget Davies will be considered eligible in the Best Performance by an Actress in a Leading Role in a Musical category for her performance in A Night with Janis Joplin.
  • Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio, Michael Cumpsty and Alessandro Nivola will be considered eligible in the Best Performance by an Actress/Actor in a Featured Role in a Play categories respectively for their performances in The Winslow Boy.
  • Sebastian Arcelus will be considered eligible in the Best Performance by an Actor in a Leading Role in a Play category for his performance in A Time to Kill.
  • Mary-Louise Parker will be considered eligible in the Best Performance by an Actress in a Leading Role in a Play category for her performance in The Snow Geese. 
  • Samuel Barnett will be considered eligible in the Best Performance by an Actor in a Leading Role in a Play category for his performance in Twelfth Night.
  • Mark Rylance will be considered eligible in the Best Performance by an Actor in a Leading Role in a Play category for his performance in Richard III.
  • Anne-Marie Duff and Ethan Hawke will be considered eligible in the Best Performance by an Actress/Actor in a Leading Role in a Play categories respectively for their performance in Macbeth.
  • Billy Crudup and Shuler Hensley will be considered eligible in the Best Performance by an Actor in a Featured Role in a Play category for their performances in No Man’s Land.   
  • Billy Crudup and Shuler Hensley will be considered eligible in the Best Performance by an Actor in a Featured Role in a Play category for their performances in Waiting for Godot. 

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 2014 Tony Nominations will be announced on April 29. The 2014 Tony Awards will be broadcast on CBS, live from Radio City Music Hall on Sunday, June 8 at 8/7c (delayed PT).
