Excellent morning on this radiant Friday.

California has the Oscars, Golden Globes and Emmys.

But New York has the Tonys.

The awards are truly our city&rsquos personal, beginning as a dinner at the Waldorf Astoria in 1947 and continuing, in the decades that followed, at the Plaza, the Astor, the Rainbow Area and, at some point, Broadway theaters.

This year&rsquos show, on Sunday at Radio City Music Hall, will be various than recent years&rsquo productions.

The New York Times theater reporter Michael Paulson gave us 5 factors to tune in.

1. You, also, can see a winner.

The final two massive winners at the Tony Awards, &ldquoHamilton&rdquo and &ldquoDear Evan Hansen,&rdquo have been already very hard tickets even prior to they were named very best new musical in 2016 and 2017, Mr. Paulson said.

&ldquoBut if you want to see this year&rsquos probably winner, &lsquoThe Band&rsquos Pay a visit to,&rsquo you can,&rdquo he told us. &ldquoIt&rsquos selling properly, but not sold out, and it&rsquos also nevertheless feasible to get tickets for the other nominees in this category, which are &lsquoFrozen,&rsquo &lsquoMean Girls&rsquo and &lsquoSpongeBob SquarePants.&rsquo&rdquo

2. None of the nominees for best new musical are original.

All 4 contenders for ideal new musical were adapted from prior material: &ldquoThe Band&rsquos Go to,&rdquo &ldquoFrozen&rdquo and &ldquoMean Girls&rdquo all started as motion pictures, and &ldquoSpongeBob&rdquo as a television show.

3. There&rsquos a new category this year.

In 2014, the Tony Awards stopped recognizing sound designers, saying the category was also specialized. &ldquoBut there was an outcry,&rdquo Mr. Paulson said, &ldquoand this year the category is back, both for plays and musicals.&rdquo
