Home Theater Tony Awards Shoot Down “Shuffle Along,” Classified Original, Will Lose to “Hamilton”

“Shuffle Along” is cooked at the Tonys. The Tony committee has announced they consider the George C. Wolfe musical new and original, not a revival. That puts “Shuffle Along” in direct contention with “Hamilton,” which will just about everything. While “Shuffle Along” will get a lot of nominations, their best best is maybe Best Actress in a Musical– Audra McDonald– and Best Choreography– Savion Glover. But even those are long shots. With McDonald leaving mid June for three months off, “Shuffle Along”– a pricey show– is now facing a long hot summer.

The Best Musical nominees should be:
Hamilton
Shuffle Along
School of Rock
Waitress
