Phish front man Trey Anastasio’s first foray into Broadway may not have been a success at the box office, but he’s doing just fine on the Awards Season front. Not only is he up for Outer Critics Circle and Drama Desk Awards, today he scored a nomination for the big prize – A Tony Award.
Hands On A Hardbody, which features music penned by Trey Anastasio and Amanda Green, has been nominated in the Best Original Score (Music and/or Lyrics) Written for the Theatre category. The shuttered musical also saw actress Keala Settle and actor Keith Carradine score Tony noms.
The Tony telecast will air on CBS June 9th at 8PM ET.
