ABSTRACT
The article reflects on the possible winners for 2005-2006 Tony Awards for theater. The trend shows that more than one show will dominate the contest. The drama "The Drowsy Chaperone" has 13 nominations, which is the largest number. "The Color Purple" is just behind with 11 nominations. Another theatrical production "Jersey Boys," which is one of the season's surprise hits, could take as many as four nominations. "Sweeney Todd" and "The History Boys" could have at least three nominations.
