Congrats to everyone involved with The Book of Mormon, especially the guys over at South Park, for putting together not only the most highlarious idea for a musical, but also one that has just been chosen by the Outer Critics Circle as the year's best!
The OCC is made up of writers and commentators who focus purely on New York theater, so it's a pretty hefty honor!
Among others were:
"War Horse" [won] best play and "Anything Goes" best musical revival.
Mark Rylance in "Jerusalem" edged out Al Pacino for best actor in a drama, while there was a tie between Nina Arianda in "Born Yesterday" and Frances McDormand in "Good People" for the top actress award Sunday.
Great job to everyone honored! We can't wait to see Mormon, that's for sure!
