Nominations for the Tony Awards have been announced and the musical satire "A Gentleman's Guide to Love & Murder" led the pack of Broadway's best with 10 nods including ones for best musical, director and leading actor. Rounding out the category for best musical were "After Midnight," "Aladdin," and "Beautiful: The Carole King Musical." Neil Patrick Harris, whose hit show "Hedwig and the Angry Inch" has earned critical acclaim, received a nod for best actor in a musical. His show earned 8 nods, including one for best revival. The category for best female lead in a musical is a tight race, which includes Idina Menzel for "If/Then" and Kelli O'Hara for "Bridges of Madison County." On the play side, revivals of "Twelfth Night" and "The Glass Menagerie" received the most nominations of any Broadway play production, each garnering seven nods. Other best play revival nominees were "A Raisin in the Sun" and "The Cripple of Inishmaan" - although its star, Daniel Radcliffe failed to earn a nod. Audra McDonald received a nod for "Lady Day at Emerson's Bar & Grill" - if she wins, McDonald will be the first actor in history to win a Tony in all acting categories.
