The musical comedy - devised by the creators of 'South Park' - has earned a total of 14 nods, including for Best Musical, Best Direction and Best Score.

Also receiving multiple nominations at this year's Tony Awards, which recognise achievement in live Broadway theatre - was 'The Scottsboro Boys', which is up for 12 accolades, including Best Musical and Best Book of a Musical, while star Joshua Henry is up for Best Performance by an Actor in a Leading Role in a Musical.

The shows battling it out in the prestigious Best Musical Category also include 'Sister Act' and 'Catch Me If You Can', while 'War Horse', 'Jerusalem', 'The Motherf****r With the Hat' - starring Chris Rock - and 'Good People' are all up for Best Play.

Meanwhile, Kathleen Marshall - who picked up her sixth and seventh nominations for directing Cole Porter comedy 'Anything Goes' - admitted she was thrilled the dance-based show had received a total of nine nods, including Best Revival and Best Actress for Sutton Foster.
