Broadway transfers of Angels in America and Harry Potter and the Cursed Child are among some of the most-nominated productions at this year’s Tony Awards.
Jamie Parker and Andrew Garfield were nominated for Best Leading Actor in a Play
Marianne Elliott’s National Theatre production of Angels in America picked up 11 noms, while Harry Potter and the Cursed Child – which earned a record-breaking nine Olivier Awards in 2017 – was nominated in 10 categories.
While Elliott and Potter director John Tiffany were both nominated for Best Direction of a play, both shows dominated the acting categories. Susan Brown, Denise Gough (both Angels) and Noma Dumezweni (Hermione in Cursed Child) were nominated for Featured Actress in a Play, and Anthony Boyle and Nathan Lane were recognised for Featured Actor in a Play.
Jamie Parker (Harry Potter) and Andrew Garfield (Angels) were nominated for Best Leading Actor in a Play, alongside the leads of two other London transfers: Tom Hollander (who stars in the Menier Chocolate Factory’s production of Travesties) and Mark Rylance (whose Globe production of Farinelli and the King now runs in New York). They all go up against Denzel Washington for The Iceman Cometh.
Lucy Kirkwood’s The Children, which premiered at the Royal Court, has been nominated for Best Play and Deborah Finlay picks up a nom for Best Featured Actress in a Play.
