John Patrick Shanley’s “Doubt” was the big winner Monday night as the League of Off Broadway Theaters & Producers presented its Lucille Lortel Awards.

Held at Dodgers Stages, the awards annually honor excellence in the Off Broadway theater.

“Doubt” drew awards for play, director Doug Hughes, lead actress Cherry Jones and featured actress Adrienne Lenox.

In its 20th year, the Lortels managed its first three-way tie. Lenox shared the featured actress prize with Jenn Harris in “Modern Orthodox” and Parker Posey in “Hurlyburly.”

“The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee,” which like “Doubt” has transferred to Broadway, won for musical, as well as featured actor Dan Fogler.

“Counsellor-at-Law” also took a pair of trophies, for revival and for lead actor John Rubinstein.

Heather Raffo’s “Nine Parts of Desire” drew the solo show nod; it also took the sound design prize for Obadiah Eaves.

Other tech prizes went to “Intimate Apparel,” for Derek McLane’s scenic design and Catherine Zuber’s costumes, and to “Rodney’s Wife,” for lighting designed by David Weiner.

“Altar Boyz” won for Christopher Gattelli’s choreography.

Special awards went to thesp Frances Sternhagen and the Irish Repertory Theater.
