We are highlighting the Best Performance by an Actor in a Featured Role in a Musical race this Wednesday. Past winners have included Hadestown's André De Shields, The Band's Visit's Ari'el Stachel, Hello, Dolly!'s Gavin Creel, and Hamilton's Daveed Diggs in recent years. This year's race includes an exciting array of performers that made us want to leap out of our seat for joy, break our heart in a story's challenging moments, inspire with the moving delivery of their words and even can-can.
