Tony! Tony! Tony!

tony-award-statue.jpgAttention all you Broadway geighs, esteemed and imminently knowledgeable blogger ModFab has begun to handicap the all-important Tony Awards nomination race. This week he’s focusing on the play categories, new and revival. No surprises in the frontrunner for best new play, August: Osage County seems to be a favorite, but what will it be up against? Ex-liberal David Mamet’s presidential comedy November? Or Brit intellectual Tom Stoppard’s Rock ‘N’ Roll?

As for revivals, it’s maybe Mike Nichols’ celeb-infused Country Girl (he’s got Morgan Freeman and Frances McDormand) versus a mustachioed Patrick Stewart headlining  Macbeth.

Ooh, the anticipation! Pins and needles!
