Tony Awards 2022: Full list of nominees and winners

Michael R. Jackson’s meta-journey musical "A Strange Loop" headed into the night with 11 nominations and won best musical.

NEW YORK CITY, N.Y. — Broadway's biggest night honored the current season — with a whopping 34 new productions — representing a full return to theaters after nearly two years of a pandemic-mandated shutdown

Michael R. Jackson’s critically cheered theater meta-journey musical "A Strange Loop" won best musical. Heading into Sunday night, it had a leading 11 nominations.

Right behind “A Strange Loop” was a tie with 10 nominations each for "MJ,” a bio musical of the King of Pop stuffed with his biggest hits, and “Paradise Square,” a musical about Irish immigrants and Black Americans jostling to survive in New York City around the time of the Civil War.
