So the 2017 Tony Nominations come out next week so I thought I would do some predictions. Also, I haven’t posted in literally FOREVER!! I don’t really have a good reason for that but I’m going to try and post more frequently. But anyways, this season has been insane!!!

And stay tuned for a response when the actual nominations come out May 2 at 8:30 am*! And if you have any suggestions for posts, shows you want me to review (I’ve seen way more shows than I’ve reviewed. Working on some new ones now.), tips for various theatre going activities, anything please comment.

UPDATE: As originally posted, this list had Warren Carlyle as a nominee for best choreography. I have since found out that he is not considered eligible and as such replaced him with Spencer Liff for Falsettos.
