Midler, Blanchett, Field score Tony nominations for best of Broadway

In the Best Play category, shows like "Oslo" and "A Doll's House Part 2" will likely pick up nominations.

This year, there are 24 competitive Tony categories. That accounts for just under half of the 40 acting nominations across eight play and musical categories. "And we need to get back into the practice of that".

Square 1, founded in 2012 by Jay Krottinger and Ryan Jude Tanner, has been co-producer of the musicals "Pippin", which won the Tony for best revival of a musical in 2013, and "Waitress", which continues to run on Broadway. The musical has also been nominated for best choreography and lighting.

Several other Tony-nominated shows have CT origins.

The diversity of last year's Hamilton-dominated Tony Awards, in which all four of the musical acting categories were won by performers of color, seemed nearly like a rebuke of the mostly white Oscars.

Pride And Prejudice actress Jennifer Ehle will take on Hollywood heavyweights Cate Blanchett and Sally Field at this year's Tony Awards.

The 71st annual Tony Awards, hosted by Kevin Spacey, will take place June 11 at Radio City Music Hall and will air on CBS.

Kline earned his nomination in Noel Coward's 1939 farce "Present Laughter", about an egomaniacal matinee idol in the midst of personal turmoil.

Celtic's biggest win at Glasgow rival Rangers in 120 years
The Celtic players joined their fans at the end to rejoice in the romp and Tierney said: "Everybody enjoyed the celebrations". Scott Sinclair got Celtic off to the flawless start when he scored from the penalty spot after just seven minutes.

IndieWire says Midler's nomination for her performance as matchmaker Dolly Levi, in her first Broadway appearance since 1979, was no surprise.

Best Leading Actress in a Musical: Denée Benton (Natasha in "Natasha, Pierre & The Great Comet of 1812"); Christine Ebersole (Elizabeth Arden in "War Paint"); Patti LuPone (Helena Rubinstein in "War Paint"); Bette Midler (Dolly in "Hello, Dolly!"); Eva Noblezada (Kim in "Miss Saigon"). The list of shows that didn't make the best musical cut (a glittering parade of disappointed hopefuls that includes "Amélie", "War Paint", "Anastasia", "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory" and "Bandstand") reveals just how expensively elusive success can be for even the most experienced teams.

It could be seen as a weakness that no new musical or play has sensationally broken away from the pack.

For Featured Actor in a Play: Danny DeVito (The Price), and Nathan Lane (The Front Page).

In a press release, playhouse managing director Michael S. Rosenberg stated: "It is tremendously gratifying to see our own Christopher Ashley and these two Playhouse-born shows be so warmly embraced on Broadway and receive such incredible award recognition".

Lastly, the revival of Falsettos celebrated nominations for Christian Borle, Stephanie J. Block, and two featured actors: Andrew Rannells and Brandon Uranowitz.
