Glengarry is still in the works, at least as of September. When they announced American Buffalo, the lead producers said Glengarry was deferred to the 2020-2021 season in order to get the theatre they want:
Hot Pants said: "Can anyone who’s been looking at all of them say what the critics think of Issac Cole Powell as Tony? I’ve only read Brantley’s review so far and he had little to about Powell. I know some people on here think his performance might win the Tony, so I want to hear if critics’ reactions to him are pointing in that direction."

Beautiful, but dreadfully uncomfortable. I was at the Sutton concert, too, and the leg room in the balcony––the second of three tiers in this venue––is the worst I think I've ever experienced anywhere... I woke up in pain the next day.
On the concert itself, I have to echo the thoughts of LetTheSun
Are you basing that off of the National Theatre production? I didn't see this production on stage or on screen, but I imagine Cooke will try to replicate his vision of the piece for his film version (for better or worse).
The announced producers had me a little underwhelmed, but Heyday Films, in addition to the Harry Potter franchise, is behind some very impressive pictures including Gravity and this season's Once Upon a Time in Hollywood and Marriage Story. Small consideration, but it seems they can definite handle a prestige film.
The Hollywood Reporter just shared news that Dominic Cooke will direct a film of Follies after helming the National Theatre revival in 2017. Sondheim commented that Cooke's stage production was the first time he envisioned the material as cinematic. It will be a BBC Films and Heyday Films production.
This is a trickier situation than Jan Maxwell's back in 2010 because Jan had one performance eligible in each of the categories, as you said (it was for "The Royal Family" and "Lend Me a Tenor," not "Follies" though).
The fact that "Drive" runs through the spring and therefore coincides with Tony season elevates Parker's chances of a nod for that performance. Reviews for her performance in "Sound Inside" were excellent, tho

If they are bumped up to lead recognition, I certainly see Kalukango being a contender but think Nolan would be a long sh

She will be in the Featured category unless the Tony nominating committee decides to bump her up to Actress (which I assume would go for Paul Alexander Nolan, too). I think it's entirely possible that Kalukango's category placement changes, but for now she

The Steppenwolf production from a decade ago listed its run-time at an hour and forty minutes, including intermission. The pacing might / will vary under Neil Pepe than how Amy Morton staged it then, but it is likely to remain around 90 minutes.
