For Hamilton, Howell Binkley is nominated for lighting design; Nevin Steinberg for sound design; and Paul Tazewell for costume design.

Network is a National Theatre production, based on the 1976 film, directed by Ivo Van Hove and starring Bryan Cranston; a New York transfer has been rumored. Bat Out of Hell is a jukebox musical featuring songs by Jim Steinman, many of which have been recorded by Meat Loaf. Dick Whittington is an example of panto, the only-in-Britain genre of Christmas holiday entertainments. Ink is new drama, by James Graham, about Rupert Murdoch's invasion of Fleet Street in the 1960s. The Ferryman, by Jez Butterworth (Jerusalem), is an extremely well-received drama that transfers to Broadway in the fall.
