One thought on “2017 Tony Awards Announced! The Great Comet, Hello, Dolly!, and Dear Evan Hansen Lead Nominations

  1. This is great! Very comprehensive list and good insight. I recently sat down with Evan Todd from Beautiful the Carole King Musical, and we spent half the day talking about our predictions for this year. Dear Evan Hansen was obviously a big topic of discussion.
