Tony time is upon us, and you all need a playlist to go with that Awards Season mood! Whatever you need, Playbill will provide. Scroll down for the latest Playbill Mixtape.
The 2019 Tony Award nominations were announced April 30 and Hadestown and Ain’t Too Proud led the pack with 14 and 12 nominations, respectively. This year’s playlist includes songs from both of those nominated shows, but also showcases songs from nominees for Best Original Score, as well as songs sung by performers nominated in the Lead Actor and Actress in a Musical categories, as well as Feature Actor and Actress in a Musical categories.

We kick off with “More Than Survive” from Be More Chill by Tony-nominated composer-lyricists Joe Iconis, before launching into “Livin’ It Up On Top” from Hadestown, written by Tony-nominated bookwriter and composer-lyricist Anaïs Mitchell and featuring Tony nominee Amber Gray.
Of course, you’ll notice some songs like “Evil Woman” sung by Tony nominee Mary Testa since the cast album for the new revival of Oklahoma! has not yet been released.
