List of Tony Awards nominees airing on CBS June 9

"CBS This Morning" co-host Gayle King along with Tony Award-winning actress Bebe Neuwirth and Tony-nominated "Hamilton"alum Brandon Victor Dixonrevealed the nominees in the top eight categories for the 73rd annual Tony Awards Tuesday morning.

"The Ferryman" leads in the top categories for plays scoring nominations for best play, best actor in a play and best actress in a play for stars Paddy Considine and Laura Donnelly. Jez Butterworth's critically-acclaimed three-and-half-hour drama set in Northern Ireland in 1981 centers on a farmer who was previously a member of the Irish Republican Army. 

Meanwhile "Hadestown" and "Ain't Too Proud - The Life and Times of the Temptations," earned the most nominations in the biggest musical categories including best musical, best actor for Derrick Baskin's role in "Ain't Too Proud" and best actress for Eva Noblezada's turn in "Hadestown." "Hadestown" is the musical adaptation of a 2010 folk opera concept album by the same name. The stage adaptation intertwines two of Greek mythology's most famous tales. 

Overall, "Hadestown" earned 14 nominations – the most of any production this year –  followed by The Temptations bio musical "Ain't Too Proud" with 12 nods, "Tootsie" with 11 and "The Ferryman" with nine. 

Of the 34 shows eligible for Tonys this season, 21 are plays and just 13 are musicals despite concern in the industry that blockbuster musicals are taking over Broadway.
