'Some Like It Hot' leads Tony Award nominations with 13 nominations
The 2023 Tony Award nominations were announced Tuesday, singling out individuals and productions for excellence in Broadway theater
The most Tony nominated show is "Some Like It Hot," with 13 nominations, including Best Musical. Adapted from the iconic film, it features an updated story line about gender identity.
Three shows tied with nine nominations each: “& Juliet,” which reimagines “Romeo and Juliet” and adds some of the biggest pop hits of the past few decades, “New York, New York,” which combined two generations of Broadway royalty in John Kander and Lin-Manuel Miranda and “Shucked,” a surprise lightweight musical comedy studded with corn puns.
The Tony Awards will take place on June 11.
