Rachel McAdams has been nominated for a Tony Award for best actress in a play for her Broadway debut, while Canadian choreographers Rick Kuperman and Jeff Kuperman earned a nod for their work on “The Outsiders.”

McAdams was nominated for her turn in “Mary Jane,” the Amy Herzog-penned play about a single mother in a difficult family situation, which is also up for best play.

This was McAdams’ first Tony nomination.

Meanwhile, the Kuperman brothers were nominated for best choreography for “The Outsiders,” the musical reimagining of the coming-of-age novel and film.

American Arcade Fire alum Will Butler earned nominations for best score and best orchestrations for his work on the play “Stereophonic.”

The awards are set for June 16, and will be hosted by Ariana DeBose.
