New York – Just over a week ago, The Hollywood Reporter conducted its first Tonys Actor Roundtable with six 2014 Tony nominees — Neil Patrick Harris (Hedwig and the Angry Inch), James Monroe Iglehart (Aladdin), Andy Karl (Rocky), Jefferson Mays (A Gentleman's Guide to Love & Murder), Chris O'Dowd (Of Mice and Men) and Tony Shalhoub (Act One) — and the conversation produced so much interesting material that it couldn't all fit into the main video. Therefore, THR is now releasing an 11-minute bonus feature: the actors' discussion about what first brought them to New York and what they regard

Will Neil Patrick Harris claim his first Tony Award this Sunday for his gender-bending turn in the musical revival of Hedwig and the Angry Inch? Probably. Will fellow multiple-Emmy winner Bryan Cranston win for playing Lyndon B. Johnson in the biodrama All the Way? Count on it. But will it be the Carole King biomusical Beautiful or the murderously funny A Gentleman’s Guide to Love & Murder that earns top honors as the Best New Musical of the Broadway season?
On that point, as on many other tight races in this year’s Tony contest, EW critics Melissa Rose Bernardo and Thom Geier are divided. »

As we sneak up on this Sunday’s Tony Awards, the Broadway season’s box office winners are quickly emerging. And the biggest new hit appears to be on a magic carpet ride. For the week ending June 1, Disney’s Aladdin led new shows with nearly $1.2 million in ticket sales, according to figures from the Broadway League. The animated-film-based tuner is playing to full houses and nearly 88 percent of its potential gross in the cavernous 1,723-seat New Amsterdam Theatre. Right behind Aladdin, though, is a rare non-musical blockbuster: the Denzel Washington-led revival of A Raisin in the Sun, which »

New York (AP) — It was a brutal Tuesday morning for some A-list stars on Broadway. Snubbed for Tony Award nominations were Denzel Washington, James Franco, Zachary Quinto, Michelle Williams, Orlando Bloom, Ethan Hawke, Zach Braff, Billy Crudup, Rachel Weisz and Daniel Craig. Daniel Radcliffe struck out for his third consecutive Broadway show. Neil Patrick Harris, who won a nomination for his brilliant performance in the punk-rock show "Hedwig and the Angry Inch," said he was surprised by the final list. But he's been a Tony host and knows from experience the process is often rough. "Having been the host in previous years, it's always interesting and surprising," he said. "It's a small group of people that nominate and you're never quite sure what they're responding to. That being said, it does get to showcase the talents of people who often don't get their moment in the spotlight." One of the »

New York (AP) — The musical "A Gentleman's Guide to Love and Murder," a comedic romp in which a poor man eliminates the eight heirs ahead of him for a title, nabbed a leading 10 Tony Award nominations on Tuesday. Nominations were spread out for most other shows, reflecting the lack of a juggernaut this year. "Hedwig and the Angry Inch," a cult off-Broadway hit about a transgender East German performer, stars Neil Patrick Harris and won eight nominations, while "After Midnight," a musical celebrating Duke Ellington's years at the Cotton Club nightclub, got seven, tied with "Beautiful: The Carole King Musical" and a British revival of Shakespeare's "Twelfth Night." Bryan Cranston won a nod for playing Lyndon Johnson in "All the Way," and Woody Allen got one for turning his film "Bullets Over Broadway" into a musical. The nominations also made waves for snubbing some big names, including Denzel Washington, »

There was more suspense than usual in this year's hotly contested Tony Awards nomination race. So who came out ahead and who lost out? Mostly a rash of Hollywood thespians hitting Broadway: Daniel Radcliffe, Denzel Washington, James Franco and "Cabaret" star Michelle Williams were left off the nominations list, along with Ian McKellen and Patrick Stewart (“No Man’s Land/Waiting for Godot”), Zachary Quinto (“Glass Menagerie”), Daniel Craig and Rachel Weisz (“Betrayal”), Orlando Bloom (“Romeo and Juliet”), Debra Messing (“Outside Mullingar”) and the entire cast of “The Realistic Joneses”: Michael C. Hall, Toni Collette, Marisa Tomei and Tony-winner Tracy Letts. Among those scoring nominations were Neil Patrick Harris ("Hedwig and the Angry Inch"), lead actor Chris O’Dowd (“Of Mice and Men"), Tony Shalhoub ("Act One"), and Bryan Cranston as Lbj in "All the Way"--who is getting closer to the rare Egot (Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, Tony). Time to release a. »

With the nominations for the 2014 Tony Awards finally upon us, the race has been blown wide open in one of the most nail-biting stage seasons in recent memory. Although Tuesday’s nominations announcement narrows down the pack to a manageable four or five candidates for Broadway’s highest honors, there’s an overwhelming feeling of absence when it comes to some of the bigger names who didn’t make the cut this year.

Neil Patrick Harris, Bryan Cranston and Chris O'Dowd all earned Tony Award nominations Tuesday morning, while Denzel Washington, Daniel Radcliffe and Michelle Williams were among the high-profile snubs.

He was joined in that category by Ramin Karimloo (Les Misérables), Andy Karl (Rocky) and Jefferson Mays and Bryce Pinkham (both for A Gentleman's Guide to Love & Murder).

The 2014 Tony Award Nominations were announced this morning, and as expected, Neil Patrick Harris received his first Tony nom for Lead Actor In A Musical (and is the instant front runner) for Hedwig And The Angry Inch (which also received a Best Revival nom, and 8 nominations in total.).
Lucy Liu and a morning-gorgeous Jonathan Groff announced the nominations (and Jonathan got a hug from surprise guest Hugh Jackman), and there were some shockers. High profile performances from Denzel Washington, Michelle Williams and James Franco were snubbed, and sadly, Zachary Quinto was overlooked for his well-received work in The Glass Menagerie
Here’s a rundown of the acting categories. The Tony Awards (with host Hugh) will air on CBS at 9 Pm Et on Sunday, June 8th.

Fully realizing its underdog appeal, the cheeky musical A Gentleman’s Guide to Love and Murder slayed the competition this morning with a whopping 10 Tony nominations, including nods for both of its tireless leading men, Jefferson Mays and Bryce Pinkham. Neil Patrick Harris’ return to Broadway after a decade yielded him his first-ever Tony nomination for the celebrated revival of Hedwig and the Angry Inch, which netted an impressive eight nods. (Had it been eligible as a new musical, Hedwig probably would have easily tied Guide, as score and book would have been slam dunks). Trailing these shows with seven »

There are no dreams deferred for the producers of the Denzel Washington-led revival of A Raisin in the Sun. In its first full week since its April 3 opening, director Kenny Leon’s well-reviewed revival earned a remarkable $1.18 million, according to figures from the Broadway League covering ticket sales for the week ending April 13. That makes it the fifth highest-grossing show of the week and the only non-musical to cross the seven-figure threshold. And thanks to premium ticket prices as high as $348, Raisin actually exceeded the estimated gross potential of the Ethel Barrymore Theatre by 16 percent.
