It’s a big day for the musical Once, but not for Spider-Man: Turn Off The Dark, in the Tony Award nominations out this morning. Once — a romantic comedy involving a flower seller, a street musician, and a vacuum cleaner repairman — received 11 nominations including Best Musical, Best Actor in a Musical, and Best Actress in a Musical.

Outer Critics Circle Announces Awards

By PATRICK HEALY
Sara Krulwich/The New York TimesJames Corden in “One Man, Two Guvnors.”
The Outer Critics Circle, a group of theater writers outside of New York, said on Sunday that the new Broadway musical “Once” and the new play “One Man, Two Guvnors” received three top awards each in the group’s 62nd annual competition honoring Broadway and Off Broadway productions. “Once” won for best musical, director of a musical (John Tiffany) and book (Enda Walsh); “One Man” won for best play, director of a play (Nicholas Hytner) and actor in a play (James Corden). The drama “Sons of the Prophet” won for Off Broadway play and “Queen of the Mist” won for Off Broadway musical, while this season’s Broadway productions of “Death of a Salesman” and “Follies” won for best play revival and musical revival.

“Follies,” which closed in January, also won for best actor in a musical (Danny Burstein); the top awards for actresses went to Audra McDonald (as Bess in the musical revival of “The Gershwins’ Porgy and Bess”) and Tracie Bennett (as Judy Garland in “End of the Rainbow”). Recipients of featured acting awards were James Earl Jones (“Gore Vidal’s The Best Man”), Spencer Kayden (“Don’t Dress for Dinner”), and Michael McGrath and Judy Kaye (both for “Nice Work If You Can Get It”).

Two other Broadway musicals each won a pair of awards: “Newsies” for best score and choreographer, and “Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark” for sets and costumes. The musical “Ghost” won for lighting and Denis O’Hare won for solo performance for “An Iliad.” The group’s John Gassner Award, for an American play preferably by a new playwright, went to Jeff Talbott for “The Submission.”

The New York Drama Critics’ Circle, an association of theater reviewers, has also chosen its annual award winners: “Sons of the Prophet” for best play, “Tribes” for best foreign play and “Once” for best musical. The drama critics also gave special citations to the director Mike Nichols (“Death of a Salesman”) and to Signature Theater, the Off Broadway company. No staff members of The New York Times are part of either organization.
