The Broadway Blog Editor Matthew Wexler fills us in:
I’m having a flashback.
It’s my high school senior play (The Wizard of Oz… of course) and we all scramble out of homeroom to see the cast list. I was a shoe-in for the Scarecrow, or so I thought. We trampled each other toward the cast list that was posted during morning announcements. The anticipation… did I get it? Uh, no.
While I may have been relegated to a monkey (and not even a flying one at that), Broadway’s brightest talent had a bit more luck this season, and tomorrow morning – with the help of Jesse Tyler Ferguson and Sutton Foster, The American Theatre Wing announces this year’s nominations for the coveted Tony Award.
