Falco Out, Turner In

How annoying! After I predict Edie Falco would be nominated for a Leading Actress Tony in "The House of Blue Leaves," the Tony Eligibility Committee rules she is a Featured Actress--which is in line with her classification by the Drama Desk but not by the Outer Critics. That leaves a slot in my Leading Actress list. It's either going to be Kathleen Turner in "High" or Cherry Jones in "Mrs. Warren's Profession." Both have closed, but "High" closed more recently. So I will give Falco's place to Turner. I still predict Nina Arianda of "Born Yesterday" as the winner. Falco's strongest competition will probably be Judith Light of "Lombardi."
