Schermata 2018-05-01 alle 19.07.49Gli Oscar del teatro, i mitici Tony Awards, hanno appena annunciato le nomination per l’imminente edizione, con due sorprese davanti a tutti.
Mean Girls, musical tratto dall’omonimo cult movie del 2004, e il costosissimo SpongeBob, musical da 20 milioni di dollari ispirato al mitico personaggio dei cartoon.
12 nomination a testa, con il revival di Angels In America a quota 11 e Harry Potter and the Cursed Child a quota 10.
Tina Fey, sceneggiatrice di Mean Girls, ha conquistato una candidatura ai Tony per il miglior libretto di un musical, con le protagoniste Taylor Louderman, Gray Henson e Ashley Park in corsa come migliori attrici, protagoniste e non.
Casey Nicholaw è stato invece nominato per due premi: migliore regia e miglior coreografia.
Per quanto riguarda l’inaffondabile Angels in America, nomination per Andrew Garfield, Nathan Lane, Denise Gough e Susan Brown
Tra i candidati ‘celebri’ spiccano anche Amy Schumer, in shortlist per il suo debutto a Broadway nella commedia Meteor Shower, scritta dall’attore Steve Martin; Denzel Washington, nominato per The Iceman Cometh; il premio Oscar Mark Rylance, in corsa per Farinelli and the King.
Frozen, un po’ a sorpresa, ha strappato solo 3 candidature.
La 72° edizione dei Tony Awards andrà in scena il 10 giugno a New York.
