  Heroes of the Fourth Turning

The New York Drama Critics' Circle has named Will Arbery’s Heroes of the Fourth Turning best play of the 2019-20 season, while the award for best musical went to Michael R. Jackson’s A Strange Loop. Both shows were presented at Playwrights Horizons.

The awards will be presented in a virtual ceremony on Tuesday, April 28. The award for best play carries a cash prize of $2,500, which is made possible by a grant from the Lucille Lortel Foundation.

Special citations were voted to David Byrne and the Broadway production of American Utopia, Deirdre O’Connell for career excellence including her performance in Lucas Hnath’s Dana H., and the New York theater community for perseverance in the face of loss during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The New York Drama Critics’ Circle, which was founded in 1936, is made up of drama critics from newspapers, magazines, wire services and websites based in the New York metropolitan area. Adam Feldman serves as president; Joe Dziemianowicz serves as vice president; and Zachary Stewart serves as treasurer. Voting members include David Cote, Vinson Cunningham, David Finkle, Jeremy Gerard, Charles Isherwood, Chris Jones, Christopher Kelly, Soraya Nadia McDonald, David Rooney, Frank Scheck, Alexandra Schwartz, Helen Shaw, David Sheward, Marilyn Stasio, Terry Teachout, Elisabeth Vincentelli and Matt Windman. Emeritus members include Melissa Rose Bernardo, Michael Feingold, Robert Feldberg, Elysa Gardner, Brian Scott Lipton, Jesse Oxfeld, Michael Sommers, Steven Suskin, Linda Winer and Richard Zoglin.

A full breakdown of this year’s voting has been posted on the organization’s website. For more information on the New York Drama Critics' Circle, please visit
