The Friday 5: 5 Things We Hope The Tony Nominators Don't Forget

Normally, Mike and I like to offer up our Tony Award nomination predictions list at this time of year. This season, however, we won't have seen four major productions before the nominees are announced (Oklahoma!, Hadestown, Beetlejuice and Tootsie), so we don't feel prepared. Instead, for this week's Friday 5 we offer up a list of possible choices from shows earlier this season - 5 musicals and 5 plays - that the committee may overlook. The list below doesn't include anyone who seems likely to be nominated (i.e. Stephanie J. Block for The Cher Show, To Kill a Mockingbird for Best Play). These are the actors and creatives that really stood out to us, no matter how likely (or not) they are to hear their names called on Tuesday.

NOTE/FYI: We wrote this list up BEFORE any nominations for any awards were announced.
