a.k.a. "The Oscar Messenger"

The Outer Critics Circle Award Winners have just been announced this morning and of all things “Harry Potter and the Cursed Child” won Best New Broadway Play! I’d like to point out that Jamie Parker, who is playing the grown-up Harry, is familiar to Broadway audiences as one of the “History Boys” a few seasons back.

He’ll now be famous as Harry Potter forever. He’s nominated for a Tony for Best Actor in a Play, too. Best Actor in a Play for the Outer Critics was won by Andrew Garfield, formerly a filmic Spider-Man, in “Angels in America.”

Lauren Ambrose, a fan favorite for her series-long role as a troubled teen in “Six Feet Under” and a marvelous Juliet in Shakespeare in the Park several seasons back, won Best Actress in a Musical for “My Fair Lady.” Norbert Leo Butz also won for his Supporting Performance as Eliza Doolittle’s much-sauced dustman father Alfred P. Doolittle. Bartlett Sher also won for Best Director and “My Fair Lady” itself as Best Revival of a Musical.Lauren Ambrose 1

 

“Harry Potter” scored four times in the technical categories for lights, costumes, back-drop scenic effects and sound.
