On June 16, one of five scores from the 2023–2024 Broadway season will win the Tony Award for Best Original Score (Music and/or Lyrics) Written for the Theatre at the 77th Annual Tony Awards.

Vying for that coveted prize are Adam Guettel for Days of Wine and Roses, David Byrne and Fatboy Slim for Here Lies Love, Jamestown Revival (Jonathan Clay and Zach Chance) and Justin Levine for The Outsiders, Will Butler for Stereophonic, and Shaina Taub for Suffs.
