Tony considers more candidates

Group determines eligibility of 11 productions

Tony nominators will consider Arthur Laurents a candidate in the musical direction category for his staging of “Gypsy” — again.

Laurents’ eligibility, somewhat called into question because the current revival of “Gypsy” is the third he has helmed on Broadway, was determined as part of the generally surprise-free announcement coming out of the fourth and final meeting of the season by the Tony Awards Administration Committee.

Group determined eligibility specifics of the final 11 productions to open during the 2007-08 season. Official cutoff date was Wednesday.

Romantic leads of the Lincoln Center Theater revival of “South Pacific,” Paulo Szot and Kelli O’Hara, will be considered in leading thesp categories, as will James Snyder and Elizabeth Stanley of “Cry-Baby.”

Patrick Stewart and Kate Fleetwood are up for nods as lead performers in a play, while Phylicia Rashad of “Cat on a Hot Tin Roof” and Christine Baranski in “Boeing-Boeing” have been deemed featured actresses.

Harvey Fierstein has been determined a featured actor in a tuner for his role in “A Catered Affair.”

Otherwise, eligibility decisions followed Tony regulations, which slot above-the-title actors in lead categories and below-the-title thesps in featured.
