What would be your single dream nomination for the Tonys (presumably something you don't think will get the actual nomination on Tuesday)? And why?

I think mine would be SCOTTSBORO for Best Musical, over CATCH ME. Simply because I thought it was the most ambitious, risky, stunningly-well-staged piece of musical theater that New York has seen since SPRING AWAKENING.
Current Avatar: Cynthia Erivo, bringing down the house in The Color Purple.

My ultimate one is Joe Mantello (but that will probably happen). One that may or may not happen would be Tony Sheldon. One that is probably NOT going to happen would be Women on Verge for Best Musical.

I'd also like a Sheldon nom for sure, and also Marla Mindelle for Sister Act.

Renee Elise Goldsberry for Best Featured Actress. An amazing performance that will likely be overshadowed by flashier competition.
"You travel alone because other people are only there to remind you how much that hook hurts that we all bit down on. Wait for that one day we can bite free and get back out there in space where we belong, sail back over water, over skies, into space, the hook finally out of our mouths and we wander back out there in space spawning to other planets never to return hurrah to earth and we'll look back and can't even see these lives here anymore. Only the taste of blood to remind us we ever existed. The earth is small. We're gone. We're dead. We're safe." -John Guare, Landscape of the Body

I'm not going to choose someone like Mantello, who will definitely be nominated. I'll go with a longshot...
