Shows with Seattle ties nominated for Tony Awards

Seattle’s theater community is abuzz this morning thanks to the just-announced nominations for the 68th annual Tony Awards. Seattle’s Robert Schenkkan, who already has a Pulitzer in his pocket, learned his LBJ bio-drama “All the Way” is up for best new play.

(Bryan Cranston is packing ‘em in as the president on Broadway).

“Aladdin,” which warmed up at the 5th Avenue Theatre before flying off to New York, was nominated for best musical, plus book and original score.

And the duo of Brian Yorkey/Tom Kitt, writers of “If/Then,” are also nominated for best original score. (Yorkey grew up in Issaquah and worked several seasons at The Village Theatre. He and Kitt are the Pulitzer and Tony-winning writers of “Next to Normal.”)

The Tony Awards ceremony will be broadcast June 8 on CBS.
