The 2022 Tony Awards nominations make clear that Broadway’s reopening season has been anything but dull.
The ceremony will be held on June 12 at Radio City Music Hall, but there is much to discuss before then.
The New York Times hosted performers from Tony-nominated musicals for an afternoon of song and conversation with The Times’s theater reporter, Michael Paulson, on May 26.
The event livestreamed for Times subscribers, and an in-person audience of subscribers along with New York City students interested in theater.
Myles Frost, star of “MJ,” nominated for his Broadway debut role as Michael Jackson;
Austin Scott and cast members from the musical “Girl From the North Country,” which combines Bob Dylan songs with a story set in a 1930s boardinghouse;
Keirsten Nicole Hodgens, Nicole Kyoung-Mi Lambert, Courtney Mack and Mallory Maedke from “Six: The Musical,” about the wives of Henry VIII;
Jaquel Spivey, star of the musical “A Strange Loop,” which received the most nominations of any show this season, including one for Spivey, who is making his Broadway debut. He will perform with his castmates, L Morgan Lee and John-Andrew Morrison, who also received Tony nods as well as James Jackson, Jr., and John-Michael Lyles, Jason Veasey and Antwayn Hopper;
Matt Doyle of “Company,” the Stephen Sondheim and George Furth musical, who is nominated for best featured actor;
Tony-nominated composer Jason Robert Brown of “Mr. Saturday Night”; and
Joaquina Kalukango, the Tony-nominated star of “Paradise Square,” a musical about Black and Irish New Yorkers during the Civil War.
Enjoy the show.
