The Tony Awards Administration Committee met on October 18 for the first time this season to decide the eligibility of Broadway productions for the American Theatre Wing's 2018 Tony Awards®, presented by The Broadway League and the American Theatre Wing. The Committee will meet regularly throughout the 2018-2019 Broadway season to make eligibility determinations
The Committee considered the eligibility status of seven Broadway productions for the 2019 Tony Awards. The shows considered are, in opening night order: The Boys in the Band, Straight White Men, Head Over Heels, Gettin' the Band Back Together, Pretty Woman: The Musical, Bernhardt/Hamlet, and The Nap.
The Committee announced the following:
Note: Unless the committee has determined otherwise, performers listed ABOVE the title on the show's opening-night Playbill are normally eligible in the Leading Actor/Actress categories. If a performer is listed BELOW the title, he or she is considered a "Featured" performer.
So if you don’t see the name of the performer you are interested in listed above, that generally means you can determine the category in which he or she will be eligible by consulting the show's Playbill (as of the opening night).
The American Theatre Wing’s 73rd Annual Tony Awards will air on the CBS Television Network on Sunday, June 9, 2019 (8:00-11:00 PM, ET/delayed PT) live from Radio City Music Hall in New York City.
