The Tony Awards Administration Committee met April 2 for the fourth time this season to decide the eligibility of five Broadway productions for the 2009 American Theatre Wing's Tony Awards, presented by The Broadway League and The American Theatre Wing.
The rulings were as follows:
Michael Cerveris, Paul Sparks and Peter Stormare will all be considered eligible in the Featured Actor in a Play category for their performances in Hedda Gabler.
You're Welcome America. A Final Night with George W Bush will be considered eligible in the Special Theatrical Event category.
Deaf West’s production of SPRING AWAKENING floored the critics when it premiered in California, prompting the Los Angeles Times to write, "It's hard to enumerate all the ways in which Deaf West's SPRING AWAKENING is so very, very good." Now this unapologetically brilliant new production is coming to New York.
