The 62nd Annual Outer Critics Circle Awards, honoring the best of Broadway and Off-Broadway, will be presented May 24 at 4 PM at Sardi's Restaurant in Manhattan.

Presenters include Jerry Stiller, Anne Meara, Josh Gad, Montego Glover, Jon Robin Baitz, James Corden, Tracie Bennett, Audra McDonald, James Earl Jones, Michael McGrath and Judy Kaye.

Winners were announced May 14. Once, the new musical based on the film of the same name, and the London import One Man, Two Guvnors each won three awards apiece, the most of any production of the season.

Jeff Talbott's acclaimed Off-Broadway, race-themed play, The Submission, was awarded the John Gassner Award, which is presented for an American play, preferably by a new playwright.

Outer Critics will present an honorary award to The Public Theater on its 50th anniversary presenting free theatre at the Delacorte Theater in Central Park. Stiller and Meara, alumni of Shakespeare in the Park and Public Theater productions, will present the special award to Public artistic director Oskar Eustis and executive director Patrick Willingham.
