 Fall 2015 Stars, Shows & Creatives Who Deserve Tony Awar...

It’s a sad truth that spring shows tend to dominate Tony nominations, leaving just a slot or two for great work that opened in the fall season. Below, the BroadwayBox team 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 Revival of a Musical, Best Actor in a Musical, Best Featured Actress in a Musical and other categories will definitely have more than just one fall performance; also ‘Noises Off’ is technically a spring show so it is not included.
