Outer Crix Name Vic/Vic Best Musical

News   Outer Crix Name Vic/Vic Best Musical
 
Victor/Victoria was named Outstanding Broadway Musical of 1995-96 by the Outer Critics Circle, beating both Big and State Fair, among other shows, in the first major theatre award of the New York season.

Rent was named Outstanding Off-Broadway Musical. Master Class was named Outstanding Broadway Play.

There was a tie for Outstanding Off-Broadway Play between Molly Sweeney and Picasso at the Lapine Agile.

Though the 46th annual awards were announced April 29, they will be given in a ceremony May 24 at Sardi's restaurant in the theatre district.
