The 68th annual Tony Awards kick off Sunday night, with numerous well-known names and titles up for awards. "A Gentleman's Guide to Love and Murder," a musical set in Edwardian England, leads the field with 10 nominations, followed by the revival of "Hedwig and the Angry Inch," starring Broadway favorite Neil Patrick Harris. "After Midnight," a musical set in Harlem's world-famous Cotton Club, and "Beautiful - The Carole King Musical" received seven nominations each, and its star, Jessie Mueller (as Carole King), is a slight favorite. Other nominees include "Disney's Aladdin," "Rocky: the Musical," and "Bullets Over Broadway: the Musical," with Woody Allen in nomination for best Book of a Musical. Plays leading the field are revivals of "The Glass Menagerie," "Of Mice and Men," starring James Franco, Denzel Washington's "Raisin in the Sun," and "Twelfth Night," and the original play "All The Way," starring Brian Cranston ("Breaking Bad") as President Lyndon Johnson.
