And with 10 nods each, expect numbers from "The Gershwins' Porgy and Bess," starring Audra McDonald, and "Nice Work If You Can Get It," starring Matthew Broderick, also with a Gershwin score.

And if the audience is lucky, it will see a bunch of ragtag pirates dressed as mermaids in a number from "Peter and the Starcatcher." This delightful play, with nine nominations, details Captain Hook and Peter Pan's history.
