Congratulations to all the Tony Nominees, and all the Non-nominees, and everyone who fell in love with working on the school play AND THEN ACTUALLY GETS TO KEEP DOING IT IN REAL LIFE. How f*ckin lucky and talented you are, all of you.
SO proud of our show and every single human involved with it for our Best Musical Tony nomination! This is a group of humans like no other, and every one of them should be recognized individually not just for their work, but for their hearts. Let the sun shine on! #FrozenBroadway pic.twitter.com/gDssAZy99Z

John got nominated for a Tony this morning for a song he apparently wrote for spongebob squarepants. Why does he not tell me when he writes spongebob songs?? What else is he lying about?? Are there other songs out there??

PLUS, some of the nominees shared their responses on social. Read their full reactions here.
A lot going through my head right now. But first, two things: 1) @TinaLandau leads with artistry and her collaborators (us) follow. 2) thank you to EVERYONE who made theater this season. Honored to be a part of this community. https://t.co/l7weGrEiRa
