At Tony Award nominations, 'Hamilton' is a safe bet

The Associated Press

NEW YORK (AP) Expect another glorious day for "Hamilton" as Tony Award nominations are announced.

Lin-Manuel Miranda's hip-hop-flavored musical about the first U.S. treasury secretary is expected to earn a clutch of Tony nominations Tuesday.

Just how many is the big question.

"The Producers" and "Billy Elliot" share the record for the most Tony nominations, with 15 each. The megahit "Hamilton" could very well shatter the record in the 13 categories that a new musical is eligible.

"Hamilton" has burst through the Broadway bubble like few shows. Bloomingdale's now sells "Hamilton" merchandise, U.S. presidential candidates have tweeted about it, it's entered the debate over the nation's currency and the show has been referenced on "Saturday Night Live" and "Inside Amy Schumer."
