OUTER CRITICS CIRCLE NOMINATIONS
at Algonquin Hotel

OUTER CRIX PIX
By David Lefkowitz
Published April 22 2008

  Roger Bart, a current nominee for Young Frankenstein

On April 21 at New York's Algonquin Hotel, former Outer Critics Circle Award winners Karen Ziemba and Sandy Duncan announced nominees for this year's OCC Awards. Winners will be announced May 12, and the 58th annual Outer Critics Circle Awards ceremony will be held May 22nd at Sardi's Restaurant in the theater district.

Perhaps most surprising is the strong showing - ten nominations - of Young Frankenstein, a musical critics generally deemed a disappointment compared to Mel Brooks' and Thomas Meehan's previous effort, The Producers. Also racking up the nods are Les Liaisons Dangereuses with nine and South Pacific with eight.

It should be noted that two shows were omitted from consideration: In the Heights, because it was up for OCC honors last year (it won best off-Broadway musical), and Glory Days, because it opens after the nomination deadline (though it's scheduled to open in time for the Tony Awards).

Last year's Outer Critics winners included The Coast of Utopia, Spring Awakening, Indian Blood, In the Heights, and Nilaja Sun winning both the John Gassner Award and solo honors for No Child...
