Awards Watch: Outer Critics 2008

At first glance, screen to stage productions did well at the 58th annual Outer Critics Circle Awards today: the stage versions of Xanadu and Young Frankenstein tied for Outstanding Broadway Musical of the year, and Cry-Baby took home choreography honors.

But the big winners were the acclaimed revivals of Gypsy and South Pacific, with the latter taking home the most awards (four) of the day, including Outstanding Musical Revival. Both shows dominated the musical acting awards, including the first of likely many for Patti LuPone as Mama Rose.

Other acting winners include such big names as Kevin Kline (as Cyrano de Bergerac), James Earl Jones (as Big Daddy in Cat on a Hot Tin Roof), Laurie Metcalf (November) and Laurence Fishburne (Thurgood).
