    here is a list of potential Tony nominees for 2018-19 for Best Actor in a Musical:

    Brooks Ashmanskas, The Prom
    Alex Brightman, Beetlejuice
    Reeve Carney, Hadestown
    Will Chase, Kiss Me, Kate
    Damon Daunno, Oklahoma!
    Santino Fontana, Tootsie
    Mitchell Jarvis, Getting The Band Back Together
    Andy Karl, Pretty Woman
    Eric William Morris, King Kong
    Patrick Page, Hadestown
    Will Roland, Be More Chill (may be featured)
    Christopher Sieber, The Prom (may go featured)

    Any others you can think of who belong on this list? Any of these who will be moved to featured?

    My educated guess:Brooks Ashmanskas, Alex Brightman, Will Chase, Santino Fontana and Patrick Page. I am hoping Tootsie turns out great as I love and adore Santino Fontana and would love for him to win a Tony award! (:

    I think Reeve Carney (and possibly André De Shields since his role serves as the narrator) is suppose to be the male lead of Hadestown.

    Will Roland from Be More Chill will likely also be eligible in this category.

    Based on Michael Riedel’s report on Tootsie back in September, Santino Fontana could have this category locked up. http://nypost.com/2018/09/13/early-tony-buzz-for-broadway-bound-tootsie-musical/

    Also based on Michael Riedel’s recent report of Ain’t Too Proud, Derrick Baskin could be one to watch for his performance as Otis Williams.

    Please note that no prediction should ever be based on any Michael Riedel article. He is notorious for trying to generate Tony hype that doesn’t pan out. Any correct guess he’s ever had was of the blind-pig-and-a-truffle variety.

    Remember, this is the guy who swore all season long that Andy Karl had the Tony lead over Ben Platt.

    I am completely in love with Santino Fontana and hope this is one Riedel prediction that proves to be true! (;

    I cannot even believe people on this board are citing Michael Reidel as someone to listen to when it comes to the Tonys – or Broadway in general. Excuse me while I go throw up. When you cite someone’s predictions for the Tonys it should be ME because I’m always right on these boards. And you all know it. Jeffrey Kare, you should know better.

    I guess you can say Michael Riedel’s Tony predictions are the equivalent to Tom O’Neil’s predictions for the Oscars and the Emmys.

    You might as well now add Damon Daunno (unless he doesn’t end up staying with Oklahoma!).

    Give it to Andy Karl! he’s probably heart broken over his lost to Platt. I want to see him win!

    Given the lukewarm response to Pretty Woman, I don’t see it getting much love from the nominating committee.

    Currently, I’m thinking Will Chase, Reeve Carney, Damon Daunno (two Orpheuses in contention!. . .Orpheui?), Santino Fontana, and Brooks Ashmanskas. I think that either Daunno or Chase wins.
