HAMILTONCongratulations to the winners of the 2015 Outer Critics Circle Awards! The big winner was The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Nighttime taking home a total of five awards, the most of any production this season. The critically acclaimed An American In Paris came in second scoring four awards overall. The Off-Broadway Broadway-bound Lin Manuel Miranda’s Hamilton worked its way into third place taking home three awards. Something note worthy about Hamilton‘s three wins include the fact that the show scored Outstanding New Book & Score of a Musical taking the prize in each category over several Broadway productions. This is a sure sign of the strength the production has even before hitting the Great White Way this summer. This was definitely an interesting beginning as the winners of this year’s awards become apparent to us as we get closer and closer to the 2015 Tony Awards.

Don’t miss your chance to see many of these award-winning shows currently still running on Broadway! While we know many of you are interested in getting a chance to see the now closed Hamilton, summer will be here before you know it! And trust us, we wanna see it JUST as bad as you do! Congratulations again to all of the 2015 Outer Critics Circle Award winners! Until next year! Visit our Awards Season Page for full coverage of the 2015 season winners and nominees! For more information, visit the Outer Critics Circle Awards Official WebsiteAnd of course, be sure to check out the rest of Luner on Theatre for all your theatre news you don’t only need but want to know!
