Once the Musical Leads the Tony Nominees

By Catherine Daivs, Editorial Assistant. May 1, 2012.

Once,  the Broadway musical based on the 2006 Academy Award winning Irish film of the same name staring Glen Hansard and Marketa Irglova, has been nominated for the most Tony awards this year, leading the pack with a total of 11 nods. The show, which takes place during the course of one week, tells the story of an Irish musician and a Czech immigrant in Dublin, who are brought together by their shared love of music.

Steve Kazee and Cristin Milioti, who play the leads Guy and Girl, have both been nominated for Best Performance in a Leading Role in a Musical (for actor and actress, respectively), and John Tiffany is up for Best Direction of a Musical. Elizabeth A. Davis is also being considered for Best Performance by an Actress in a Featured Role in a Musical. Other categories the show is nominated in are: Best Musical, Book, Choreography, Orchestrations, Scenic Design, Lighting Design and Sound Design.

Irish American Kelli O’Hara has also been nominated for Best Performance by an Actress in a Leading Role in a Musical, for her work on ‘Nice Work if You Can Get It.” The Tonys themselves will be hosted, for the third time, by the always delightful Neil Patrick Harris on June 10.
