Tony Award Nominations

1st\NW Quadrant The Approval Matrix

"In the Heights," the little barrio musical that brought a fresh salsa and hip-hop beat to Broadway, dominated the 2008 Tony Award nominations Tuesday [May 13, 2008], picking up 13, more than any other show.

Yet some big-name actors were left out of the Tony mix _ most notably Kevin Kline, Nathan Lane and James Earl Jones. Snubbed for a coveted best-musical slot were Mel Brooks' "Young Frankenstein," Disney's "The Little Mermaid" and "A Catered Affair." Left without any nominations at all were the popular revival of "Cat on a Hot Tin Roof" and the Mike Nichols-directed production of "The Country Girl."
