Tony Awards Nominations 2020: The Complete List (Updating)

Tony Awards Nominations 2020: The Complete List (Updating)

The delayed ceremony marks the end of a season cut short by the pandemic-fueled closure of Broadway theaters

Broadway may be closed but the Tony Awards will be going on.

The Broadway League and American Theatre Wing on Thursday announced the nominations for a 2019-20 season cut short by the closure of Broadway theaters in March — before many of the year’s starriest contenders managed to open.

That meant just 18 productions were eligible for the 2020 Tony Awards due to the shorter season, which is roughly half the number that would be contending in a normal year. In fact, no musical revivals opened during the eligibility period, so that category was eliminated all together.

The ceremony, originally scheduled to take place at Radio City Music Hall on June 7, will be virtual this year. There were 31 productions on the boards on March 12 before Gov. Andrew Cuomo ordered all theaters to close, with another eight due to begin preview performances ahead of the April 23 eligibility for this year’s Tony Awards.

Tony-winning actor James Monroe Iglehart (“Aladdin”) announced the nominees via the Tonys YouTube channel.
