They’re in! The nominations for the 71st annual Tony Awards were announced live on May 2, 2017, by Tony nominee Christopher Jackson and Tony winner Jane Krakowski. Natasha, Pierre & The Great Comet of 1812 tops the 2017 Tony nominations with a whopping 12 nods, and the revival of Hello, Dolly! trails close behind with a total of 10 nominations.

House of Cards star Kevin Spacey will host this year’s Tony Awards, to be held at Radio City Music Hall next month, on Sunday, June 11. If Spacey’s prior work on Broadway – including his 1991 Tony Award for Best Actor in Lost in Yonkers is any indication – then it looks like Broadway’s biggest night will be one of splendid entertainment.
