After a week of fan voting, nominations have been announced for the 13th Annual Broadway.com Audience Choice Awards, the only major theater prize chosen by Broadway theatergoers.

Topping the list of this year's nominees is the musical Newsies, which received a total of 11 nominations including Favorite New Musical. Leading man Jeremy Jordan received the most nominations for an individual performer with four, including nods in the categories of Favorite Actor in a Musical and Favorite Onstage Pair (with co-star Kara Lindsay). Jordan also received a Favorite Breakthrough Performance nomination for his star turn in Bonnie & Clyde, as well as an additional spot in the Favorite Onstage Pair category with Bonnie & Clyde co-star Laura Osnes.

Nice Work If You Can Get It, the musical composed of classic tunes from George and Ira Gershwin, received five nominations including Favorite New Musical and three nominations each for stars Matthew Broderick and Kelli O'Hara. The musical revival of Evita also earned five nominations, including nods for stars Elena Roger and Ricky Martin.

On the play front, the Peter Pan prequel Peter and the Starcatcher earned five nods (including Favorite New Play), as did the revival of Death of a Salesman. Both shows' leading men, Adam Chanler-Berat and Christian Borle (Peter and the Starcatcher) and Philip Seymour Hoffman and Andrew Garfield (Death of a Salesman), were recognized in the Favorite Actor in a Play category. Garfield, Hoffman and Borle also earned additional nominations for Favorite Breakthrough Performance (Garfield), Favorite Onstage Pair (Garfield and Hoffman) and Favorite Funny Performance (Borle).

Last year's winner for Favorite Revival of a Musical, How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying, received four nods with show stars Nick Jonas, Darren Criss and Beau Bridges all earning nominations for Favorite Replacement; the show also picked up a nomination for Favorite Long-Running Show. 

The Broadway.com Audience Choice Awards will be presented at a swanky affair at the Allen Room at Jazz at Lincoln Center on Sunday, May 13.
