Tony Awards Committee Rules on Performer, Show Eligibility

The Tony Awards Administration Committee ruled on the eligibility of several shows and performers this week. Productions up for discussion included the musicals “The Color Purple,” “Fiddler on the Roof,” “School of the Rock the Musical,” “She Loves Me,” as well as the plays “Noises Off,” “Our Mother’s Brief Affair,” and “Blackbird.” Both Jennifer Hudson (“The Color Purple”) and Jessica Hecht (“Fiddler on the Roof”) are eligible in the featured actress in a musical category.
