Tony Awards producers under pressure to put on a good (ratings) show this year will spotlight material that viewers 'know and love,' not just numbers from nominated plays.
The musicals 'Kinky Boots' and 'Matilda' earned the most Tony nominations, with 'Boots' scoring 13 and 'Matilda' earning 12. Film star Tom Hanks earned a Tony nomination for his work on the play 'Lucky Guy.'
