Tony Cutoff Crunch: Shows Crowd Broadway Stages

Friday, April 19, 2013

It’s Broadway’s final spring season sprint before Tony Award consideration cutoff – and a diverse field of shows are crowding the stages jockeying for position.

Daily News theater critic Joe Dziemianowicz said there are a number of plays already out — including The Nance, The Big Knife, The Assembled Parties, Orphans, and Jekyll & Hyde. New additions include a pair of one-women shows.

"I always look at April as sort of Broadway's clown car," Dziemianowicz said. "The producers always see how many shows they can cram into that last two or three weeks."

Cut off for the 2012-13 season is April 25.
