The American Theater Wing is celebrating the best of Broadway this tonight with the 66th Annual Tony Awards. The musical “Once” is leading the list of nominees this year with eleven nods. “The Gershwins’ Porgy and Bess” and “Nice Work if You Can Get It,” have ten nominations each. The expensive and troubled musical “Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark” was largely snubbed by the nominating committee but did pick up two nominations for scenic design and costumes.
The 66th Annual Tony Awards will be presented this Sunday, June 10th at the Beacon Theatre in New York. “How I Met Your Mother” star Neil Patrick Harris will host the ceremony. CBS will televise the event live, starting at 8:00 pm Eastern.
