The Tony Award nominations were announced Monday by the actors Adrienne Warren, who won a Tony Award for portraying Tina Turner in “Tina,” and Joshua Henry, a three-time Tony nominee, most recently for “Carousel.”

A total of 34 shows were vying for awards in 26 categories this year; to be eligible, the shows had to have opened between Feb. 20, 2020, and May 4, 2022. Below is a list of the nominees.

This year’s awards ceremony will take place on June 12 at Radio City Music Hall, and will feature two parts: a one-hour awards-focused segment streamed on Paramount+, which will be followed by a three-hour performance-heavy segment to be broadcast on television by CBS. It will be hosted by Ariana DeBose, who earlier this year won an Academy Award for “West Side Story.”

Tony Awards: The Best New Musical Nominees
The 2022 nominees. The race for best new musical at the Tony Awards — traditionally the most financially beneficial prize — is a broad six-way contest this year. Here’s a closer look at each nominee:

“Girl From the North Country” This musical combines the songs of Bob Dylan with a fictional story about a crowded boardinghouse during the Great Depression in the Minnesota city where Dylan was born.

“MJ” This biographical jukebox musical follows Michael Jackson as he prepares for a world tour, but it sidesteps the sexual abuse allegations against the pop star.

“Mr. Saturday Night” Based on a 1992 movie, this musical features Billy Crystal returning to the role of Buddy Young Jr., a has-been comic who is hungering for a comeback and reconnecting with family.

“Paradise Square” In a show that explores shifting race relations, the love between Black and Irish New Yorkers in a Manhattan bar is threatened during the Civil War draft riots of 1863.

“Six: The Musical” This British pop musical about the wives of Henry VIII mixes 16th-century marital politics with 21st-century selfies and shade in a sing-off among six sassy divas.
