Company nominated for nine Tony Awards
Marianne Elliott's gender-flipped Company has earned nine Tony Award nominations, including nods for Best Revival and Best Director.
The Broadway transfer from London of the Elliott & Harper Productions smash hit has proved to be as popular in the city it celebrates as it was in the West End (where it also secured nine nominations in the Olivier Awards). In the 2022 Tony Award nominations announcement, the show is listed for:
Best Musical Revival - up against Caroline, or Change and The Music Man

Good luck to all of the nominees!
One glaring omission, of course, is Katrina Lenk as the show's star. She is among a number of high-profile names - including Daniel Craig, Sarah Jessica Parker, Matthew Broderick and Beanie Feldstein - snubbed in this year's nominations.
