“Oslo” gained laurels for Outstanding Play, while “The Little Foxes” was honored with Outstanding Actress in a Play for Laura Linney, Outstanding Featured Actress in a Play for Cynthia Nixon, and Outstanding Costume Design for a Play.

And “The Band’s Visit,” which will arrive on Broadway next fall, won for Outstanding Music and Outstanding Lyrics. Its director, David Cromer, shared the award for Outstanding Director of a Musical with Rachel Chavkin of “Natasha, Pierre & the Great Comet of 1812.”
