Just bring your A game to our Tony Awards predictions game
The 2018 Tony Awards are shaping up to be a David and Goliath-style battle. Who will take home Best Musical: the small and subtle ensemble show The Band's Visit, or the big, splashy, brand-name blockbuster SpongeBob SquarePants? While other categories seem more obvious (Glenda Jackson better get the prize for Best Actress in a Play for Three Tall Women!), others are totally up for grabs. Best Actress in a Leading Role in a Musical is impossible to call.
Regardless of who ultimately snags statuettes, you can vie to be a winner too by playing our Tony Awards game. Two champions will be chosen at random from the entries that correctly predict the most Tony winners. The prize is two tickets from our TDF offers for members, or a $100 TKTS gift certificate for non-members. Members can take the quiz here, while non-members should go here. All entries must be received by noon on Sunday, June 10, the day of the Tonys.
And if you want to bone up on the nominees before you make your selections, here's a handy list of links to articles we wrote about some of the contenders:
