I am leaving all the major categories as they were in my last post EXCEPT I am changing Best Actor in a Musical from Tony Shalhoub in The Band's Visit to Ethan Slater in Spongebob. Slater won both the Drama Desk and Outer Critics Circle awards and I hear Shalhoub has missed some performances to film The Amazing Ms. Maisel for Amazon. This is the closest race of the evening. I voted for Joshua Henry from Carousel for Tony, DD and Outer Critics and i hope he wins, but I have a feeling the Tony voters will reward Slater's eccentric, athletic performance.
