The number of shows eligible for Tony nominations may be higher this year, thanks to some changes from the Tony Rules Committee. Five shows could be nominated in the major categories, as opposed to the four that have been nominated in previous years.

Tony and Golden Globe winner Hugh Jackman (The Boy from Oz, Les Miserables) will be returning as host of the 68th Tony Awards at Radio City Music Hall on June 8. The event will be telecast on CBS.

In other theater award news, Cicely Tyson and Vanessa Williams, co-stars from last season’s The Trip to Bountiful, will announce the nominees for the Outer Critic Circle Awards at the Friars Club on April 22, and Tony winner Laura Benanti (Gypsy) will host the Drama Desk Awards at Town Hall on June 1.
