The new musical Bandstand earned five nominations, including nods for Outstanding Ensemble in a Broadway Show and Outstanding Choreography in a Broadway Show for Andy Blankenbuehler, who won in a three-way tie last year for his work on Hamilton.

Five prancers from Cats earned recognition for their work in the revival at the Neil Simon Theatre: Tyler Hanes, Rickyk Ubeda, Eloise Kropp, Georgina Pazcoguin, and Christine Cornish Smith. The cast was also nominated as a whole for Outstanding Ensemble.

In the Off-Broadway categories, the Sutton Foster-led revival of Sweet Charity led the pack with six nominations, including one for choreographer Joshua Bergasse. Four of the five slots in the Oustanding Female Dancer in an Off-Broadway Show category came from the New Group revival: Yesenia Ayala, Asmeret Ghebremichael, Nikka Graff Lanzarone, and Emily Padgett. Performer Cody Williams also received a nomination for his work in the show.

Theatre and dance legend Tommy Tune will be presented with the inaugural Lifetime Achievement Award.
