'Todd' makes Philly cut

Arden Theater and Philadelphia Theater Company dominated Philadelphia’s annual legit honors, the Barrymore Awards, bagging six prizes each for several shows at Monday’s gala ceremony.

Arden’s production of “Sweeney Todd” scooped up many of the top awards in the musical category. The Sondheim show won for overall production of a musical as well as Terrence J. Nolen’s direction, lead actress Mary Martello and John Stephen Hoey’s lighting.

Joshua Lamon won supporting actor in a musical for Arden’s “A Year With Frog and Toad,” which also landed the costume award for Richard St. Clair.

Philadelphia Theater Company’s “Take Me Out” won overall production of a play and nabbed the supporting actor nod for Kraig Swartz.

In addition, the company won music direction (Kimberly Grigsby) and ensemble in a musical trophies for “Elegies: A Song Cycle.”

Maria Mileaf won the directing prize for PTC’s production of “The Story,” and Bill Irwin won lead actor in a play for “Trumbo.”

The Prince’s “Chasing Nicolette,” which is on its way to a New York run this summer, won two awards: Rebecca Bellingham for supporting actress in a musical and David Friedman for original music. The show’s star, Bronson Pinchot, was on hand at the black-tie event to perform two songs from the local hit.

The Wilma’s production of “The Clean House” won Jayne Houdyshell supporting actress; Madi DiStefano won leading actress in a play for Brat Prods.’ “Eden.”

New-play award went to Hedgerow Theater for “The Lives of Bosie” by John Wolfson. Tony Braithwaite won actor in a musical for Act II Playhouse’s “The Big Bang.”
