Rounding out the category were two Broadway debuts: Choir Boy, by Tarell Alvin McCraney - victor of an Academy Award for Moonlight - and What the Constitution Means to Me, a personal memoir written and performed by Heidi Schreck. They join Adam Driver in the category, but unlike Driver's Burn This, their productions didn't get Best Play or Best Revival of a Play nominations.

Some other stars were left out of their categories, including Glenda Jackson, who won a best actress Tony a year ago and starred in King Lear this season, and Nathan Lane, who leads Gary. Heidi Schreck in What the Constitution Means to Me and Laurie Metcalf for Hillary and Clinton are among the six nominees for Best Leading Actress in a Play.
