Legit faces its critics

No 'Doubt' about favorite

NEW YORK — Despite taking critics’ jabs all season, legit industryites mixed amiably with the fourth estate at the New York Drama Critics Circle awards reception Tuesday at the Algonquin Hotel, where John Patrick Shanley‘s “Doubt” received play honors and Martin McDonagh‘s “The Pillowman” got the foreign play kudo.

“I’ve never been nominated for anything in New York,” Shanley said. “Now I’m engulfed in the shitstorm of awards. I’m not allowed to complain.”

Edward Albee, who presented the nods, had his own critique of crix: “I know some critics where one year they’re smart and another year they’re incredibly stupid.”
