A Spotlight on the 2022 Tony Nominees for Featured Actor in a Musical
The nominees for Best Performance by a Featured Actor in a musical are dressed to impress on top of the Hard Rock Hotel in NYC. A little more than a week away from Broadway’s Biggest Night, Theatrely invited all five stars to take part in a photo shoot celebrating the whirlwind that was the 2021-2022 season.
While they got their glam on at the beautiful Hard Rock Hotel New York, curated by stylist Jake Sokoloff, we asked them how they were feeling ahead of the Tony Awards. Check out more photos on Theatrely’s Instagram, shot by Michaelah Reynolds.
