WATCH: Broadway tunes in for Tony Award nominations

NEW YORK — The theater world will be up early and listening carefully on Tuesday morning: Bebe Neuwirth and Brandon Victor Dixon are announcing Tony Award nominations — and it promises to be a nail-biter.

With no Broadway show dominating the conversation as in the past with musicals like “Hamilton” or “Dear Evan Hansen,” the nominations this year are more of a toss-up.

Will the exuberant “Be More Chill” lead the pack for the best new musical? Or will the adult “Hadestown”? Or will it be “Tootsie,” the crowd-pleasing show based on the movie?

The season also saw 14 new plays, including the Northern Irish drama “The Ferryman,” Aaron Sorkin’s adaptation of “To Kill a Mockingbird,” a play about Hillary Clinton’s 2008 presidential campaign, and the stage adaptation of “Network.”
