NEW YORK, June 9 (UPI) -- The main attraction at this year's Tony Awards, which will be handed out Sunday, will be the race for best musical.

The nominees include "Jersey Boys", "The Drowsy Chaperone", "The Wedding Singer" and "The Color Purple," the New York Times reported Friday.

The Tony's are the best time for musical productions to advertise. Each of the seven Best Musical and Best Musical Revival nominees will perform a number during the show.

Just because a musical or play did not win the Tony does not mean that it didn't do well.

"Wicked," which lost the Tony for best musical in 2004, took in almost $70 million at the box office this past season, making it this season's best-selling show.

The 60th annual Tony Awards will be broadcast Sunday night on CBS.
