On April 30, 2024, nominations for the 77th Annual Tony Awards were announced. In a year filled with adaptations of beloved novels ("Water for Elephants," "The Great Gatsby," "The Outsiders" and "The Notebook"), long-awaited revivals ("The Who's Tommy," "The Wiz," "Merrily We Roll Along" and "Spamalot"), TV and film actors taking the stage ("Mary Jane," "Uncle Vanya," "Appropriate" and "An Enemy of the People") and toe-tapping jukebox musicals ("Once Upon a One More Time" and "The Heart of Rock and Roll"), this was a Broadway season for the books. We're so excited to tune into the Tony Awards on June 16, 2024, live from Lincoln Center on CBS and root for these outstanding shows. Check back for the winners here!
