Alicia Keys, Jay Z Go Fela For Tony Awards

While they are not nominated for actually taking the stage in productions such as ‘Memphis’ and ‘American Idiot,” Alicia Keys and Jay-Z earned TONY Award nominations this week. Recognizing the best in theater for over twenty years, this year’s TONY Awards will take place June 13 at New York City’s Radio City Music Hall. Fela!, produced by Will and Jada Pinkett Smith, Alicia Keys and Jay-Z, leads the pack of nominees with 11 nominations — only matching ‘La Cage aux Folles,’ also up for eleven nods this year. In addition to being nominated for Best Musical, “Fela!” was nominated for Best Book of Musical for Jim Lewis & Bill T. Jones and Sahr Ngaujah was nominated for Best Performance by a Leading Actor in a Musical.
