"An American in Paris," the breezy, beautiful romantic hit based on the 1951 film starring Gene Kelly, and the lesbian coming-out story "Fun Home" are the leaders in the Tony race with 12 nominations each, including best musical coach poppy mini satchel , book, actor, actress and director.
"Something Rotten!," a bawdy parody of Broadway musicals set in 1590s Tudor England that earned 10 nominations and has been packing in audiences, is also a contender for the top musical awards.
