Year End Notes

The end of the calendar year marks the middle of the Broadway season and the transition from the "fall season" to the "spring season". With that, I have gone through the list of shows that I know about from the upcoming spring season along with the information I have cultivated about the fall season and come up with a first set of thoughts about what the Tony nominations look like as of now. I have not included the design categories here because they are the hardest to call, even once all shows have opened, though Follies seems pretty well set to get nods in all design categories.
