Student Blog: Zodiac Signs of Tony-Nominated Musicals

Determining the Zodiac Signs of the Tony-Nominated musicals based on their Broadway premiere dates.

The criteria are that these shows have been nominated for Best Musical from the 3rd Tony Awards (the ceremony that started the Best Musical category) in 1949 to the nominations of what will now be the 74th Tony Awards in 2021. I will be determining their signs based upon their Broadway premiere date. With those rules in mind, here we go!
