Results Revealed: Who YOU think is going to win the Tony Awards.

Ok, just one more prediction post to make all the nominees just a wee bit more nervy before tomorrow’s big day.

But as I said yesterday in my “What Really Excites Me About This Year’s Tonys” post, I’m not making predictions this year.  So these picks ain’t mine.

They’re yours.

Say what?

Here’s how I got ’em . . . and no, I didn’t ask any Russian operatives to hack into your computers to tell me what you’ve been texting about.

A few weeks ago, I announced our annual Tony Pool, where the winner is going to get $500 worth of Broadway tix (stay tuned on Tuesday for the results).  So, I simply took the hundreds of entries (we had more entries than there are actual Tony voters!) and looked at who the majority of you think are going to win.

And, for the first time, I’m including the % of the votes each nominee received, so you can see the margin by which you think the winner will take it all, and what got a mandate and what didn’t.  (Wouldn’t it be great if the actual Tonys gave us some sort of spread so we could see how close these winners are?)

Are you ready?  Here is who YOU think is going to win tomorrow night’s trophies:

  • I Hope The Great Comet does not sweep the Tonys. While wonderful in many ways, I do think it has been overrated. The voluptuous staging, lighting, and great orchestration mask the mediocrity of the book and basic songs.
