Jeffrey Richards ’69 co-produced The Glass Menagerie (Best Play Revival) and All the Way (Best Play). He also co-produced The Bridges of Madison County and Lady Day at Emerson’s Bar and Grill, which won nominations in acting, score and technical awards.
Roberta Pereira ’03 and Paula Wagner (wife of Rick Nicita ’67) co-produced Mothers and Sons (Best Play.)
Stephen Trask ’89 wrote the music and lyrics for Hedwig and the Angry Inch, which was nominated for 8 awards, including Best Musical Revival.
The nominations for the 68th Tony Awards were announced Tuesday morning in Manhattan. “A Gentleman’s Guide to Love & Murder” led the Tony field with 10 nominations. “Hedwig and the Angry Inch” received eight, including one for its star, Neil Patrick Harris.
Judging by Tuesday’s Tony Award nominations, Broadway has wide-open races in more categories than in recent memory: Best musical, best play, best play revival, and all of the acting categories except best actor and featured actor in a musical (where the front-runners are Neil Patrick Harris of “Hedwig and the Angry Inch” and James Monroe Iglehart of “Aladdin,” respectively).
Now begins the campaigning for Tonys wins at the annual ceremony, scheduled for June 8 at Radio City Music Hall.
