Paula Vogel’s ‘Indecent’ Leads Outer Critics Circle Nominations

Sholem Asch would be proud. Today, when the Outer Critics Circle announced the nominees for its 2017 awards, Paula Vogel’s and Rebecca Taichman’s “Indecent,” an homage to Asch’s “God of Vengeance,” racked up six nominations, making it the most-nominated play for this year’s awards.

While “Indecent” was the most-nominated play, the production to gain the most nominations overall was the new Broadway musical “Anastasia,” which received 13.

“Indecent” was nominated for Outstanding New Broadway Play, as was J.T. Rogers’s “Oslo,” Lynn Nottage’s Pulitzer Prize-winning “Sweat,” and Lucas Hnath’s “A Doll’s House, Part 2.” The play’s other nominations were for Taichman for Outstanding Director of a Play, Christopher Akerlind and Tal Yarden for Outstanding Lighting and Projection Design, respectively, Richard Topol for Outstanding Featured Actor in a Play, and Katrina Lenk for Outstanding Featured Actress in a Play.

Lenk was also nominated for Outstanding Actress in a Musical for “The Band’s Visit.”

Aside from Rogers’s “Oslo,” which received two nominations in addition to that for Outstanding New Broadway Play — Michael Aronov for Outstanding Featured Actor in a Play, and Benjamin Pearcy for Outstanding Projection Design — notable other nominees included Danny Rubin, nominated for the book of the new Broadway musical “Groundhog Day,” Steven Levenson’s “If I Forget,” nominated for Outstanding New Off-Broadway Play, and Itamar Moses, for the book of “The Band’s Visit.”
