And the 2017 Tony Nominees Are …

Once again Nordstrom is a proud sponsor of the year’s celebration of the theatre. And we can’t wait to mingle on the red carpet with the biggest names on Broadway.

Jalene Goodwin and Daveed Diggs at the 2016 Tony Awards

With no Hamilton nods to dominate the nominations (last year the musical had 16!), this year we’re seeing a roster of returning talent and some fresh, new names. From the Divine Miss M in a revival of Hello, Dolly! to David Malloy’s groundbreaking adaptation of Tolstoy, the musical Natasha, Pierre & the Great Comet of 1812, we’re ready to raise the curtain on this year’s awards season.

To prepare you, here’s who got recognized for another exceptional year of theatre, both on stage and behind the scenes.
