The morning the Tony nominations are announced, phones start buzzing with texts and calls for the happy few who get nods. As usual, Broadway.com is thrilled to be among the callers offering congratulations and getting responses. Here are the first reactions from 2013 Tony nominees. Congrats to all!

Harvey Fierstein
Best Book of a Musical, Kinky Boots

“It’s very exciting. I’ve had worse mornings, I’ll tell you that. It’s a lovely thing to wake up to. The only thing that would have been better was if I woke up, had the most nominations and I lost 100 pounds—that would have been better. Kinky Boots is a big fat hit. If I complained about anything today, all of New York would have the right to slap me in the face. We’re blessed with an entire cast of professionals. When you go to Kinky Boots, they’re all pros at the top of their game,and the audience has the feeling right away that they’re going to be taken care of. Just sit back, we know what we’re doing, and you’re going to be taken care of.”
