Fall 2014 Stars, Shows & Creatives Who Deserve Tony Award...

It’s a sad truth that spring shows tend to dominate Tony nominations, leaving just a slot (maybe two) to great work that opened in the fall season. Below, BroadwayBox goes category-by-category filling in what that one fall slot would have to be (IMHO). Disclaimer: We are narrowing down to one, though Best Play, Best Revival of a Musical, Best Actor in a Play and other categories will definitely have more than just one fall performance; also ‘Honeymoon in Vegas’ is technically a spring show so it is not included.
