‘Hamilton’ Gets 16 Tony Nominations


Michael Paulson, writing for The New York Times, on Hamilton’s history making 16 Tony nominations:

“Hamilton,” the groundbreaking hip-hop musical about the nation’s founding fathers, has been nominated for 16 Tony Awards, the most in Broadway history.

Tony nominators singled out the show in every category of theater making — acting, writing, directing, dance, music and design. A whopping seven “Hamilton” performers received nominations; in two categories, “Hamilton” actors will be competing against one another.
