Trivia

In 2010, Santo Loquasto received a nomination for Best Costume Design for a Musical for Ragtime. Loquasto, who was previously nominated for the same show in the same category in 1998, was later disqualified because the designs were predominantly recycled work from the earlier production. No replacement was made for the nomination.[19]

Multiple wins
