Broadway's Matilda Earns 12 Tony Nominations

Roald Dahl's classic book, Matilda, has blazed to the top of every list for it's Broadway debut and the just released Tony Nominations prove this show may quite possibly be one of the best this year. The official 67th Annual Tony Awards nominations list were offered on Tuesday, April 30, 2013 at 8:30 a.m. with "Matilda" trailing the new musical "Kinky Boots" by just one nomination. Both plays shared many of the same nominations throughout award categories and the moments leading up to Awards night are certain to be intense.

The direction of Matthew Warchus, excellent choreography, orchestration by Chris Nightingale, Tim Minchin's lyrics, Dennis Kelly's book adaptation, and Bertie Carvel's best lead role as the lead headmistress Trunchbull are the perfect setup for Matilda despite competition from Kinky Boots. The Broadway portrayal of the 2005 British film by the same name complete with rocker Cindy Lauper's songs and a storyline written by Harvey Fierstein have certainly captivated audiences. But who will win?

Find out when the 67th Annual Antoinette Perry Awards for Excellence in Theater (Tony Awards) are presented by the American Theatre Wing and The Broadway League at the Radio City Music Hall on Sunday, June 9, 2013 beginning at 8:00 p.m. The show will also be broadcast on CBS.
