The Best Man will be nominated, but it will lose to Death of a Salesman.

The Best Man
Death of a Salesman
Donít Dress For Dinner
Man and Boy
Master Class
Private Lives
The Road To Mecca
A Streetcar Named Desire
Wit

Unless Streetcar truly wows, it appears to be a walk for Death of a Salesman.

It'll all depend on how the Streetcar production is welcomed. I personally was not a fan. If the critics go crazy, it's in. The Best Man will probably get a nom, since it's still running, but I suspect that's the only reason it would be nominated.

I think the 5 shows slugging out for those 4 slots are
WIT
A STREETCAR NAMED DESIRE
MASTER CLASS
DEATH OF A SALESMAN
THE BEST MAN

I think for both Wit and Master Class, the actresses are what made those shows so good. I'd give a nom to Master Class over Wit though.
