EDITOR’S NOTE 2/25/20 - Hey team, just started putting together this little placeholder for the Tony nominations this April. There’s no reason to think the awards won’t happen this year or anything, so definitely a safe bet to start working on this. Just make sure NOT to publish before we fill in the actual nominees on April 28th. Thanks!
