The Bullets Over Broadway musical has had a big week in the awards world. With Broadway’s award season heating up in the lead up to the Tonys, ‘Bullets…‘ has scored new awards and nominations for it’s cast.
The Astaire Awards, now in it’s 32nd year (and named after Fred and Adele Astaire of course), celebrates the dancing on Broadway. Nominations have been announced with four nods for ‘Bullets…‘.
Nick Cordero – Oustanding Male Dancer In A Broadway Show

Susan Stroman – Outstanding Choreographer for a Broadway Show
The Astaire Awards are presented on 2nd June at NYU’s Skirball Center. Here’s Susan Stroman with Lee Roy Reams at the nominations event.
Cordero is the killer Cheech onstage, but he’s been killing it in the awards. He’s picked up a Theatre World Award. The award is given to those making their Broadway or Off-Broadway debuts.
There’s an award that you can vote for right now. Broadway.com are running their Audience Choice Awards. You can vote for Marin Mazzie in Favourite Diva Performance and Yorke for Favourite Breakthrough Performance (Female). Voting closes 18th May so get voting at their site.
It’s all on the road to the Tonys on the 8th June. Broadway.com asked some nominees to fill in a questionnaire. Here’s Cordero’s and Stroman’s. No surprise that Allen himself didn’t bother.
