'Spring Awakening' Receives 11 Tony Nods

Updated:
NEW YORK (AP) _ ``Spring Awakening,'' the Duncan Sheik-Steven Sater rock musical about the sexual longing of 19th century German teenagers, received a leading 11 Tony nominations on Tuesday.

``The Coast of Utopia,'' Tom Stoppard's epic trilogy about 19th-century Russian intellectuals, and ``Grey Gardens,'' a musical look at two of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis' more eccentric relatives, each garnered 10 nominations.

``Curtains,'' a backstage whodunit set during a theatrical tryout in Boston, got eight.

Besides ``The Coast of Utopia,'' the nominees for best play were: ``Radio Golf,'' the final chapter in August Wilson's decade-by-decade look at the black experience in 20th century America; ``Frost/Nixon,'' Peter Morgan's docudrama about the celebrated interviews between British journalist David Frost and Richard M. Nixon; and ``The Little Dog Laughed,'' Douglas Carter Beane's social comedy about Hollywood hypocrisy.

``Mary Poppins,'' a lavish adaptation of P.L. Travers novels and the classic Disney movie, picked up seven nominations during the morning announcement at Lincoln Center.

The Tonys will be broadcast June 10 (8-11 p.m. EDT) on CBS from Radio City Music Hall.
