Watch the 2020 Tony Awards Nominations Here at 12 Noon Including “Tina!” “Moulin Rouge” “Jagged Little Pill,” “The Sound Inside”


There are only 16 shows eligible for the 2020 Tony Awards. The nominees come from these shows, and it’s a mediocre list at best. The shows that would have really been in the Tony mix didn’t get to open. Hence, these Tony Awards will only be given online. That’s a shame for the people here who really did deserve acclaim, like Adrienne Warren as Tina Turner.

The sadder part of this is that after this business is concluded, we won’t have a Tony Awards again until June 2022. Broadway is officially dark through May 2021, with some shows announcing theoretical openings at the end of 2021. The pandemic has caused an economic and cultural catastrophe for New York’s theater world. So VOTE on November 3rd and let’s bring in people who can fix this fast.

Watch the video live below at 12 noon:
