Summer is in full swing! Whether you’re livin’ easy or not, be sure to listen to this week’s sizzlin' edition of Stage Notes. Join host Robert Hammond as he features summertime classics from various Broadway musicals, including Rags, Kiss Me Kate, Fosse, Movin’ Out, and Grease. The temperature is rising on this week’s scorching edition of Stage Notes. Listen for a  short re-cap of the Tony Awards.

In 2017, the race to the Tony is much less clear-cut than last year. In 2016, it was easy to predict which show would run away with just about every statue as Hamilton received 13 nominations and took home an impressive 11 awards, including Best Musical. This year, the awards may not be as one-sided, as there are several different shows in the running for the various big categories. Here is a quick look at what I think are the most heated races and which shows just may take home the coveted statue.
