The just-opened Broadway musical “Anastasia” and the rapturously received revival of Hello, Dolly! are the top nominees of the 2017 Outer Critics Circle Awards. Both Broadway and Off-Broadway productions are eligible.
The Outer Critics Circle folks today revealed their nominees of best of the best on Broadway and off for the 2014-’15 season. Let’s just say “Something Rotten” has come up smelling likes roses with 12 nods … and it hasn’t even opened yet!! (It opens Wednesday.)
Other high achievers include the revival of “On the Twentieth Century,” which earned nine nominations; the musical “An American in Paris” with eight, and the seemingly ubiquitous “Wolf Hall,” the London import nominated for seven awards (based on a book series and showing each Sunday night on PBS’ current “Masterpiece” series. I like the Tudors, but this is getting to be a bit much).
Winners will be announced May 21 at Sardi’s. Where else?
