Three productions—each currently on Broadway and Tony-nominated—have been named recipients of the 84th annual New York Drama Critics' Circle Awards.
The organization awarded Jez Butterworth's The Ferryman Best Play, with Best Musical going to David Yazbek and Robert Horn's Tootsie and Best American Play to Heidi Schreck's What the Constitution Means to Me. The three productions will be celebrated in a private reception May 13.
Additionally, the organization voted to present special citations to Off-Broadway's Irish Repertory Theatre and Page 73, as well as the National Yiddish Theatre Folksbiene's Yiddish-language Fiddler on the Roof, currently running at Stage 42 in a commercial transfer.
