Performance Network's "A Little Night Music" was the night's big winner, winning best musical, best music direction (R. MacKenzie Lewis), best performance by an actress in a musical (Naz Edwards) and best performance by an actor in a musical (John Seibert).
Seibert also won, in a tie (with John Manfredi, star of Williamston Theatre and the Jewish Ensemble Theatre Company co-production of "End Days"), for best performance by an actor in a comedy for Performance Network's "In the Next Room or The Vibrator Play."
Finally, the Purple Rose Theatre's production of Tracy Letts' "Superior Donuts," which starred "Emergency!" TV star Randolph Mantooth, earned a special Critic's Choice Award for garnering excitement about a show from all corners of the country (and beyond).
