NEW YORK, N.Y. - The Tony Awards will have fewer trophies next year and Broadway's sound designers are the ones being dropped.

The Tony Awards Administration Committee met Wednesday to determine the eligibility rules for the 2014-2015 season, and cut the categories of Best Sound Design of a Play and Best Sound Design of a Musical. That drops to 25 the number of competitive Tonys next year.

The last winner of the musical sound design award was Brian Ronan of "Beautiful: The Carole King Musical," and his counterpart in the play category was Steve Canyon Kennedy of "Lady Day at Emerson's Bar & Grill."

The committee did keep a door open to honour sound designers, saying a Special Tony Award may be given "when it determines that extraordinary sound design has been achieved."
