Chances are, Cyndi Lauper’s gonna have fun at the 2013 Tony Awards. Today, it was announced that the pop star’s musical, Kinky Boots, racked up a whopping thirteen nominations, Best Original Score and Best Musical among them. Matilda the Musical, however, is a close competitor, with twelve nominations, as is Pippin, which received ten nods.
On the costume front, Cyrano de Bergerac, The Nance, Golden Boy, and period drama The Heiress (which starred Jessica Chastain), were all nominated in the play category. Meanwhile, the best-dressed musicals include Kinky Boots, Matilda, Pippin, and Rodgers + Hammerstein’s Cinderella—the enchanted wares for which William Ivey Long designed.
