A ‘Bountiful’ bundle

'Trip' takes four Lortels

See winners

The Lucille Lortel Awards proved bountiful for “A Trip to Bountiful,” Signature Theater’s Off Broadway revival of the Horton Foote drama, which walked away with four trophies on Monday.

“Bountiful” won the revival category, while “The Seven,” Will Power’s hip-hop retelling of “Seven Against Thebes,” took the prize for musical and “The Lieutenant of Inishmore” won for play.

The bounty for “Bountiful” included a lead actress award for the much-praised Lois Smith. Hallie Foote, daughter of Horton, won for featured actress and Harris Yulin took the director trophy.

The Off Broadway-centric Lortels bestowed a total of three statues upon “The Seven,” adding choreography (Bill T. Jones) and sound design (Darron L. West) to its tally. Show was produced by New York Theater Workshop earlier this year.

Martin McDonagh’s bloody comedy “The Lieutenant of Inishmore” was produced this spring by the Atlantic, which won the laurels for body of work. The company’s production of “Inishmore” opens on Broadway today after its successful run Off Broadway.

“Inishmore’s” lead actor, David Wilmot, shared the Lortel with Christopher Denham of “Red Light Winter.” Charles Durning rounded out the thesp awards, nabbing featured actor for his perf in Wendy Wasserstein’s “Third.”

Wasserstein drew a posthumous lifetime achievement award, while John Patrick Shanley (“Doubt”) was inducted into the group of scribes with plaques on the Lortel Playwrights’ Sidewalk.

Design honors went to Eugene Lee for his set on “The Ruby Sunrise,” Eric Becker for his costume design of “Abigail’s Party” and Aaron Black for his lighting of “Funnyhouse of a Negro.”

The Edith Oliver Award for Sustained Excellence went to Betty Corwin, founder of the Theater on Film & Tape Archive at the New York Public Library for the Performing Arts.
