Outer Critics Circle Awards 2017

2016-2017 Award Winners and Nominations

Now don’t be upset, Dear Evan Hansen, Heisenberg, and Glenn Close’s performance all were evaluated, nominated and/or received nomination from previous seasons so they were not considered for this year. So when doing your Tony Award Nomination guessing game, figure out what nominations will disappear beyond the obvious off-broadway names to be replaced by Dear Evan Hansen, the front runner in a few of these categories.

Now that we got that out of the way, here are the nominations for the Outer Critics Circle Awards. Winners will be announced Monday, May 8th, while the awards will be given out at Sardi’s Restaurant on May 25th.

🏆 here are the winners

Here’s a few notables. Click on the titles of the productions to link to my reviews. A few are still on their way. A Doll’s House, Part 2, Bandstand, and hopefully I’ll get to see the most nominated show, Anastasia (I did manage to see it, so check out my review).

Thrilled for their numerous nominations: The Band’s Visit, Kid Victory, Come From Away, A Doll’s House Part 2, Indecent, and Oslo.

Ride the Cyclone

Notably missing from the list:  Latin History for Morons, Ride the Cyclone, Dead Poet’s Society, Cate Blanchett, and Notes from the Field.

Not Surprised that they didn’t make the cut: Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Amelie, Significant Other, and Cats!
