Wizard of Oz prequel Wicked, Stephen Sondheim's Assassins and Fiddler on the Roof compete for Tony awards on Sunday.
Hugh Jackman received his nomination for The Boy From Oz
The theatrical equivalent of the Oscars honours Broadway plays and musicals.
British actors Simon Russell Beale and Christopher Plummer will compete for the best actor award, with Alfred Molina on the musical acting shortlist.
X-Men star Hugh Jackman, who will host the awards from New York's Radio City Music Hall, has been nominated as best musical actor for The Boy From Oz.
Beale has won acclaim for his role in Tom Stoppard's Jumpers, while Plummer appeared in King Lear and Kline in Henry IV.
Molina is nominated for his performance in Fiddler on the Roof, as is fellow Briton Euan Morton for his portrayal of Boy George in Taboo.
Eileen Atkins has been shortlisted for the best actress award for her role in The Retreat from Moscow.
Its British playwright William Nicholson is hoping for the best play award, for which it will compete against Frozen by Yorkshire-born playwright Bryony Lavery.
Ms Lavery told The Independent on Sunday newspaper: "Nominations are always nice but you have to be careful about wishing to want it. I don't want to sob big splashy tears of disappointment."
Frozen - which examines the effects of a child's murder on her family - has also earned nominations in the best leading actress, best direction and best supporting actor categories.

In the best actress in a play category, the contenders include Hollywood star Anne Heche for Twentieth Century and Britain's Dame Eileen Atkins in The Retreat From Moscow.
The hotly-contested best musical section sees Wicked line up against The Boy From Oz, Avenue Q and Caroline, or Change.
Wicked, which explores what happened before Dorothy arrived in Oz, was one of the season's most expensive musicals, costing $14m (£7.8m).
In The Boy From Oz, Hugh Jackman plays the Australian composer Peter Allen, who rose from small-town roots to become a Hollywood entertainer. He went on to marry actress Liza Minnelli.
Allen, who wrote the show's music and lyrics, died of an Aids-related illness in 1992.
The winners of the 58th Tony awards will be decided by voting members of the American Theater Wing.
