THR has compiled longlists of possible nominees in every major category, including shows ranging from 'Airline Highway' to 'You Can't Take It with You' and people spanning F. Murray Abraham to Tony Yazbeck.

In less than two weeks, the 39 members of the 2014-2015 Tonys Nominating Committee — all "theater professionals selected by the Tony Awards Administration Committee" who serve staggered three-year terms — will sit down to determine the nominees for the 69th Tony Awards. Mary-Louise Parker and Broadway-bound Bruce Willis will announce the committee's selections on April 28.

In the meantime, The Hollywood Reporter has compiled a list of the serious contenders in every major category, so you can predict the committee's picks and make your own.
