Outer Critics Circle, the organization of writers and commentators covering New York theater for out-of-town newspapers, national publications and other media beyond Broadway, announced today (April 25, 2017) its nominees for the 2016-17 season. Broadway’s “Fiddler on the Roof” star Danny Burstein along with last season’s high-kicking “She Loves Me” sensation and TV favorite Jane Krakowski presided over the (11AM) announcement ceremony in the Oak Room at New York’s renowned Algonquin Hotel (59 W 44th Street). 

This season Outer Critics Circle is proud to post two new award categories, “Outstanding Sound Design” and “Outstanding Orchestrations” increasing award nominations to 27 categories.

Please Note:  The Off-Broadway productions of “Dear Evan Hansen,” "InTransit," “Natasha, Pierre & The Great Comet of 1812” and "Significant Other" were evaluated, nominated and/ or received awards from Outer Critics Circle in previous seasons and therefore were not considered for this year. In the case of the Broadway musical “Sunset Boulevard,” Glenn Close won the Outstanding Actress Award in a Musical for her original performance. Any new elements for these current productions were assessed for this year’s awards. In addition, due to OCC’s nomination deadline last season, the producers of the Broadway musical “Shuffle Along,” asked to be included with this year’s entries. 

Celebrating its 67th season of bestowing awards of excellence in the field of theatre, the Outer Critics Circle is an association with members affiliated with more than ninety newspapers, magazines, radio and television stations, internet, and theatre publications in America and abroad.
 
The winners will be announced on Monday, May 8th. The annual Gala Awards Dinner and presentation of awards to the winners will be held on Thursday, May 25th (3PM) at the legendary Sardi's Restaurant.
