Those productions included Passing Strange, The Little Mermaid, In the Heights, Sunday in the Park with George, The 39 Steps, November and Come Back, Little Sheba. The committee's rulings follow.
On the musical front:
Michael Cumpsty and Alexander Gemignani will be eligible for nomination in the Featured Actor in a Musical category for their performances in Sunday in the Park with George, and Jessica Molaskey will be eligible for nomination in the Featured Actress in a Musical category for her work in the revival of that Stephen Sondheim-James Lapine musical. Also, projection designer Timothy Bird & The Knifedge Creative Network and set designer David Farley will be considered jointly in the Scenic Design of a Musical category for their work on Sunday in the Park. On the play front:
Kevin Anderson and S. Epatha Merkerson will be eligible for nomination in, respectively, the Leading Actor and Actress in a Play categories for their performances in Come Back, Little Sheba. All other decisions were consistent with the opening-night credits. That is, only actors whose names appear above the title are eligible for nomination in the Leading Actor/Actress categories. Producers must petition the Administration Committee in order to change actors' eligibility status.
The Administration Committee is scheduled for one additional meeting this season.
