Tony Award nominations honour best of New York Broadway

Tony Award nominations honour best of New York Broadway

SpongeBob was also nominated for Best Lighting Design (hardly surprising, seeing as it takes place in the animated, madcap ocean bed of Bikini Bottom) as well as for Best Leading Actor.

She said it's still exciting, and "always feels different because every show means something different". Louderman says she's from a small town where "people don't really get out and dream big".

"They're so vocal, it's like having an extra cast member onstage", he said.

Other British imports, Farinelli And The King, starring Oscar victor Mark Rylance, was nominated for five gongs and Tom Stoppard play Travesties, starring Tom Hollander, for four. "I just really thought I would never be here". "You hear audible gasps, and sobs".

A British revival of "Angels in America", Tony Kushner's monumental, two-part drama about AIDS, life and love during the 1980s, grabbed 11 nominations - the most for any play this season - 25 years after it first appeared on Broadway. Also nominated are Harry Hadden-Paton of My Fair Lady, Joshua Henry of Carousel, and Tony Shalhoub of The Band's Visit. "Broadway audiences are incomparable".

I'v Proof Syria Attacked Citizens With Chemical Weapons - Macron

SpongeBob SquarePants and Mean Girls are also nominated for Best Original Score along with Angels in America, The Band's Visit, and Frozen. Carousel was nominated for Best Revival of a Musical against My Fair Lady and Once on This Island, while Angels in America is up for Best Revival of a Play.

Among the prominent names given acting nods are Andrew Garfield and Nathan Lane for "Angels in America", Denzel Washington for "The Iceman Cometh", Glenda Jackson for "Three Tall Women", Amy Schumer for "Meteor Shower", Mark Rylance for "Farinelli and the King", and Katrina Lenk for "The Band's Visit". SpongeBob SquarePants and Mean Girls are also slated to face off against Frozen and The Band's Visit for Best Book of a Musical.

In other revival news, My Fair Lady, Once On This Island, and Carousel are up for Best Revival of a Musical.

The 72nd Tony Awards will be held on Sunday, June 10, at Radio City Music Hall in New York City.
