‘The Book of Mormon’ is leading with 14 nominations in the Tony Awards 2011 in Tuesday. Potentially, it is making the most celebrated Broadway show ever since, ‘The Producers’ won 12 of the 15 nominations in 2001.

The musical comedy show, ‘The Book of Mormon’ is from the creators of the television’s animated satire ‘South Park’ and the earlier ‘Avenue Q’ which is the Broadway hit. This has won critical acclaim and was sold-out houses with the story of Mormon missionaries in Africa. It has evaded the significant censure about the racial and religious insensitivity by asset of its funniness.

‘The Merchant of Venice’, Shakespeare’s comedy has grabbed seven nominations including the Best Actor nomination for Shylock played by Al Pacino. ‘Anything Goes’ has grabbed nine nominations that also led by Best Actress nominee Sutton Foster. Besides, Special 2011 Tony Award for Lifetime Achievement will be awarded to playwright Athol Fugard and Philip J. Smith.

All the nominees were selected by a 22 persons under a nominating committee. The award winners in 26 categories will be selected by the 824 theater professionals. The Tony Awards will kick off at the Beacon Theater in New York on Sunday, June 12.
