Meet the Tony Nominees 2018

Denzel Washington, Tina Fey & Nathan Lane

Yesterday the New York Theatre Guide attended the 2018 Meet the Tony Nominees event at the InterContinental Hotel in Manhattan, where a multitude of hopefuls gathered to celebrate Tuesday's nominations announcement for The 72nd Annual Tony Awards, congratulate each other and pose for photographs.

It is certainly an exciting time of the year with a mixture of well-established stage veterans treading that familiar path through awards season towards Radio City Music Hall and breakout stars gushing with excitement and dreaming about winning their first-ever Tony Award.
