The 70th Annual Tony Awards are shaping up to be perhaps the most highly-viewed in the entire history of the ceremony. All eyes were on Broadway earlier this year when Hamilton won the Pulitzer Prize for Drama, for which The Humans was a fellow finalist. With the mind-blowing success of Hamilton, which garnered a record-breaking 16 nominations, a host of new audience members will experience the awards for the first time. Other highly-acclaimed shows include Shuffle Along (10 nominations), She Loves Me (8 nominations), Long Day’s Journey Into Night (7 nominations), The Humans (6 nominations), and Eclipsed (6 nominations).
