Once, the stage musical based on the film starring musicians Glen Hansard and Markéta Irglová, leads the nominations at the 66th annual Tony Awards with 11 nods including best musical, director, actor, actress and choreographer, the New York Times reports. Other top nominees are Peter and the Starcatcher and The Gershwins' Porgy and Bess, both with nine nominations.

Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark, the troubled yet high-grossing musical with songs by U2's Bono and the Edge, was mostly snubbed. The show, which has the distinction of being the most expensive Broadway production in history, received only two minor nominations.
