Lucas Steele? Really...? He was by far the weakest thing about the otherwise thrilling NATASHA..., in my opinion. Also don't agree with THE OPEN HOUSE for Best Play. Surprised HAND TO GOD wasn't even nominated.

Otherwise, a solid list of nominees and winners. Glad to see them (more or less) spread the wealth around a little.

Was Hand to God even eligible? If so, it's a real shame they didn't nominate it. Other than that, this seems to be the winners list that I agree with most.

Steven Boyer won, so I'm assuming it was.

Yeah, Lucas Steele was way too effeminate and whiny for the part. He was the weakest actor there. But Judy and Michael winning for Fun Home? Hell YES!

I thought Lucas Steele was a scene-stealer in an incredibly talented cast. I only wish there was more love for NATASHA. That said, I missed FUN HOME.

What an incredible list of nominees. For me, any one of that line-up of best musicals beats ALL the Tony nominees this year!

^^^^So true! I'm glad Fun Home won. It was a strong field, but Fun Home deserved to win.

Was Threepenny Opera eligible? I'm surprised that it didn't receive any nominations.

The same tired hosannas parroted for the millionth time by the same folk.

Wholly to be expected, though, with no forseeable change in the future.

Wickedrocks- Hand to God was nominated as a revival, since it wasn't a direct transfer of the EST production.

Happy for the wins for Boyer, Good Person of Szechwan, and Great Comet. It really was an amazing off-Broadway season.

Congrats to 'Here Lies Love' for winning the most prizes, but I wish it had taken Best Musical and Choreography, too. While I admired the fight choreography in 'Kung Fu,' I still think 'Here Lies Love,' the dancing-est Off-Broadway musical, deserved that prize.

And I'm very happy for Lucas Steele's win for 'Natasha.'
