Flashback Friday: The 1993 (and 2015) Tony Awards

Kander and Ebb have a Best Score nomination; Terrence McNally has a Best Book nomination.  Chita Rivera has a Best Actress nod, too. And all of them are associated with a Best Musical nominee.  Of course, I'm talking about The Visit.

Or am I?

All of them were nominees in 1993, too.  The show was Kiss of the Spider Woman.

There are other 2015/1993 Tony Awards connections, too.


  • Airline Highway nominee K. Todd Freeman was nominated for Best Actor in a Play for his performance in The Song of Jacob Zulu.
  • Best Actor in a Musical nominee Michael Cerveris (Fun Home) was a Featured Actor in a Musical nominee for playing the title character in The Who's Tommy.
  • 1993 and 2015 both have Tony nominated scores by rock legends: Pete Townshend (The Who's Tommy) and Sting (The Last Ship), respectively.

Chita: Now and Then

 
Michael: Then and Now

Had this year's nominations gone differently, The Last Ship's director, Joe Mantello could have made this list - he was a Featured Actor in a Play nominee in 1993 for Angels in America: Millennium  Approaches.  Ditto, Graciela Daniele, who, in 1993, was nominated for her choreography for The Goodbye Girl, and could have made the list this year with her work on The Visit.

These are all people with amazing, decades-long careers.  Makes you wonder what show Sydney Lucas will be nominated for in 2038, doesn't it? And she'll only be 34!
