Voting Begins in Earnest for Last Year’s Tony Awards, Which Will Be Handed Out Sometime in the Future


Yes, we are still talking about the 2020 Tony Awards. For the 2019-2020 season that ended abruptly a year ago.

Yes, the Tony Awards that announced nominations last fall, six months late, and didn’t include any of the shows that were in previews on March 12, 2020.

Those Tony Awards. Now the Tony voters can start voting for the shows and performances they actually saw, which isn’t all of them.

The only thing anyone knows is that Aaron Tveit has won Best Actor in a Musical, for “Moulin Rouge.” He was the only nominee. If he loses, he will be very disappointed.

And when are the Tony Awards going to be given? Winners announced? No one knows. “Sometime in the future.”

Curtain down.
