Tony Awards Eligibility for 2014 – Part 1

The Tony Awards Administration Committee met on October 24 for the first 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 three 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: First Date, Soul Doctor, and Romeo and Juliet.

The Committee announced the following:

  • Eric Anderson will be considered eligible in the Best Performance by a Leading Actor in a Musical category for his performance in Soul Doctor.

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).
