Trivia[edit]

The trivia section in this article probably needs to be dealt with, either by removing it or sourcing it properly and better incorporating it into the article somehow. —Mears man (talk) 06:26, 5 March 2008 (UTC)

For the record Audra McDonald[edit]

Since this comes up occasionally, I thought I'd put this note here for future reference. Audra McDonald did NOT win any Tonys for Lead Actress in a Musical. She won:

  • Featured Actress in a Musical--1994, Carousel
  • Featured Actress in a Play--1996, Master Class
  • Featured Actress in a Musical--1998 Ragtime
  • Featured Actress in a Play--2004 Raisin in the Sun.

Nominations[edit]

For the record: On Feb 25, 2009, IP 98.111.169.99 changed the number of nominations for Rebecca Luker, Marin Mazzie, Audra McDonald and Kelli O'Hara. I have changed these back to the way they were. They each have 2 nominations in this particular category (see, for example, [1]). The confusion may lie in a too-quick reading of the Tony Award information, where FEATURED and LEAD may be misread; also, in Audra's case, she has been nominated, and won, in another category: Featured Actress in a PLAY.

Renaming[edit]

I am sorry for moving the article without first discussing about it here. I just felt the previous name was too long and it's usually refereed to by this name. I tried to undo it but it was too late.--JDDJS (talk) 18:55, 12 June 2010 (UTC)
