H2$ receives 8 Tony noms; no nomination for Dan
The Tony Award nominations have just been announced, and unfortunately, despite the expectations of fans and theatre critics alike, Dan wasn’t nominated for his role in How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying.
However, How to Succeed received nominations in the following categories:
- Best revival of a musical
- Best performance by an actor in a featured role in a musical – John Larroquette
- Best performance by an actress in a featured role in a musical – Tammy Blanchard
- Best costume design of a musical – Catherine Zuber
- Best lighing design of a musical – Howell Binkley
- Best direction of a musical – Rob Ashford
- Best choreography – Rob Ashford
- Best orchestration – Doug Besterman
Unfortunately, this year saw a lot of competition for the category of best performance by an actor in a musical, with The Book of Mormon expected to be a strong contender at the Awards – its two leads will be competing against each other for best performance by an actor in a musical.
With so many nominations, it’s likely that How to Succeed will perform during the show, and Dan is bound to want to show his support for his nominated colleagues.
The Tony Awards air 12th June, 8/7c, on CBS.
