Jude Law’s “Hamlet” broadway impresses the Critics Circle

By Roger Friedman

The Broadway awards season is almost done, with the Tony Awards deadline looming on Friday. The Outer Critics Circle issued its list of nominees on Monday, and made mostly good selections. The OCC covers both Broadway and off Broadway, so some slots were filled by people who won’t be at the Tony’s. The OCC didn’t pick Alfred Molina from “Red” for their Best Actor list, but he’ll turn up later. They did like Jude Law’s excellent Hamlet, and reached back to Jan Maxwell’s memorable star turn in “The Royal Family.”

(Full disclosure: my mother, Rosalind Friedman, a well respected theater critic from Fairfield County, Connecticut, is on the OCC board. It doesn’t give me any leverage or influence. The OCC are serious theater people. All my lobbying for a couple of actors fell on deaf ears, I’m afraid.)
