The 2013 Tony Award nominations were announced Tuesday morning in New York. Some highlights for African-American theater: Actresses Cicely Tyson and Condola Rashad are up for honors for Best Performance by an Actress in a Leading Role in a Play and Best Performance in a Featured Role in a Play, respectively.

Plus, the productions in which they starred, The Trip to Bountiful and Motown: The Musical, garnered four nominations each. (There are more, too, like George C. Wolfe for directing Lucky Guy, in which Courtney B. Vance got a nod. Read the full list here and read "Black Broadway Producers Still Rare," by The Root's Keli Goff, here.)
