Last Minute Tony Predictions

With less than one hour to go before the Tony pre-show when the present the technical awards here are my predictions for tonight (which are also on

Play: Curious Incident

Musical: An American in Paris

Revival (Play): You Can't Take it with You

Revival (Musical): The King and I

Actor (Play): Alex Sharp, Curious Incident

Actress (Play): Helen Mirren, The Audience

Actor (Musical): Robert Fairchild, American in Paris

Feat. Actor (play): Richard McCabe, The Audience

Feat. Actress (play); Annaleigh Ashford, You Can't Take It With You

Feat. Actor (musical): Christian Borle, Something Rotten!

Set Design (play): Curious Incident

Set Design (musical): An American in Paris

Costume Design (play); Wolf Hall

Costume Design (Musical): King and I

Lighting Design (Play): Curious Incident

Lighting Design (Musical): An American in Paris

Orchestrations: An American in paris

This is who I think will win, not who I voted for. I want Fun Home to win Best Musical, but I think the more commercial American in Paris will win and they will give Home the consolation prizes of Score and Book (sort of like Thoroughly Modern Millie and Urinetown or Jersey Boys and Drowsy Chaperone). I also voted for K. Todd Freeman (Drama Desk winner) and Julie White to take Featured Actor and Actress in a Play for Airline Highway, but it will probably go to Richard McCabe (Outer Critics Circle) and Annaleigh Ashford (OCC, DD).

Looking forward to the show and particularly Ted Cruz's reaction to the number with Fun Home with an 11-year-old girl singing about her awakening sense of being a lesbian.
