Award winners





As of 2014, seven plays have been nominated for the Tony Award for Best Revival of a Play in two separate years for two separate productions: Inherit the Wind, A View from the Bridge (also nominated in 1983 when the category was called Tony Award for Best Revival), Death of a Salesman (also nominated for Best Revival in 1984), The Best Man, Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?, A Raisin in the Sun, and Twelfth Night. Of these, only Death of a Salesman has won the award twice, in 1999 and 2012, also winning for its 1984 production when the category was called Best Revival.

With eight nominated productions, William Shakespeare holds the record as the most represented playwright in the category.
