The Broadway Award season is moving full steam ahead toward the Tony Awards in early June. Last night the critics presented the Outer Critic Circle Awards and made Pippin a big winner with seven wins and presented the coveted 'Outstanding Musical' to Kinky Boots!

There were big surprises among the awards including Nathan Lane defeating Tom Hanks for the 'Outstanding Actor in a Play'. Holland Taylor of Ann defeated both Bette Midler and Michael Urie for 'Outstanding Solo Performance'.
