Photo Coverage: Drama Critics Circle 2009-2010 Awards Ceremony

Yesterday evening, May 10, the Algonquin Hotel hosted the 75th Annual New York Drama Critics' Circle Award ceremony honoring the best of the 2009-2010 theatre season. This year's honorees included casts and creative teams of The Orphans' Home Cycle, Fences, Circle Mirror Transformation, The Aliens; Viola Davis, Annie Baker, and Hallie Foote. Presenters included Denzel Washington, who presented the Award for Sustained Achievement to his Fence's co-star Viola Davis, Tony Kushner and Marian Seldes.

BroadwayWorld was on hand for the celebration.

The New York Drama Critics' Circle comprises 22 drama critics from daily newspapers, magazines, wire services, and websites based in the New York metropolitan area. The New York Drama Critics' Circle Award, which has been awarded every year since 1936 to the best new play of the season (with optional awards for foreign or American plays, musicals and performers), is the nation's second oldest theatre award, after the Pulitzer Prize for drama. Adam Feldman, theatre critic for Time Out New York, has served as president of the NYDCC since 2005. For more information, visit www.dramacritics.org/.
