The 2011 Tony Awards are right around the corner! Check out this year’s nominees for BEST MUSICAL:
The Book of Mormon – from Trey Parker and Matt Stone, the creators of “South Park,” comes a new Broadway musical that follows a pair of mismatched Mormon boys sent on a mission to a place that’s about as far from Salt Lake City as you can get!
Catch Me If You Can – a high-flying new musical comedy based on the hit DreamWorks film and the incredible true story of Frank W. Abagnale, Jr., a teenager who runs away from home in search of the glamorous life with nothing more than a boyish charm, a big imagination and millions of dollars in forged checks.
The Scottsboro Boys – this daring and wildly entertaining musical explores a fascinating chapter in American history with arresting originality. The show is based on the notorious “Scottsboro” case in the 1930s, in which 9 African-American men were unjustly accused of a terrible crime.
Sister Act – based on the smash-hit film, “Sister Act” features an original score by 8-time Oscar and 10-time Grammy Award winner Alan Menken. Disco diva Deloris Van Cartier has dreams of hitting the big time, but when she walks in on a “hit” of a different kind, the cops hide her in the last place anyone would think to look – a convent!
