Home Theater Broadway: “Curious Incident” Wins Outer Critics, Also Wins Audience Award with “Finding...

A lot going on today: “The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time” won the Outer Critics Circle Award for Best Play. The British import also won the Broadway.com Audience Award along with “Finding Neverland” for Best Musical.

The Outer Critics Prizes are listed below. Alex Sharp wins Best Actor for “Curious Incident.” It’s first ever Broadway show, or any legit show, I think. A year ago he was graduating from theater school at Juilliard. “An American In Paris” won Best Musical. “Hamilton” won a lot of awards in its off Broadway run. Therefore it won’t be eligible next year. Robert Fairchild won Best Actor in a Musical, because of that ballet thing he does so well. My personal choice would have been Brian d’Arcy James in “Something Rotten,” but what can you do?

The OCC is good predictor of Tony Awards. Keep that in mind.
