Les Misérables earns 15 Tommy Tune Nominations


Klein Drama received 15 Tommy Tune Nominations for their musical production of Les Misérables including Best Musical, Best Leading Actress and Actor.

Nominations were announced March 26 on Channel 13. The awards will be held on April 21 at the Hobby Center.

“There were lots of shouts of joy, hugs, handshakes, and maybe a few tears of joy. It is never expected, but we are always hopeful,” Director Tina Domino said. “There are three judges and it’s ultimately their opinion of the performances they see. We feel lucky.”

The program is no stranger to Tommy Tune nominations. Over the last 10 years, Klein musicals have earned numerous nominations and had many winners, including a few Best Musical nods.

“Finding out that Les Misérables was nominated for 15 Tommy Tune awards was incredibly exciting for everybody,” senior Whitney Wells, who played Cosette, said.  “I am beyond honored to have been part of a production that not only worked extremely hard, and gave everything they had, but also put so much emotion and life into conveying such a beautiful story. It’s exciting to know that in a couple of weeks, we will relive a part of that up on the Hobby Center stage.”
