Long Wharf’s ‘Lintel’ tops crix’ nods

Awards will be presented Monday at Westport Country Playhouse

NEW HAVEN, Conn. — Long Wharf Theater in New Haven led the pack at the 2006 Connecticut Critics Circle Awards, winning play, actor (Mark Nelson) and director (Eric Ting) for its production of Glen Berger’s one-hander “Underneath the Lintel.” Ernestine Jackson (“Lady Day at Emerson’s Bar and Grill”) won for actress in a musical as Billie Holiday in the bio-revue.

Awards will be presented Monday at the Westport Country Playhouse. The organization is composed of some — though not all — of the state’s theater reviewers. (The Hartford Courant, New Haven Register, Stamford Advocate and the Connecticut edition of the New York Times do not participate in the organization or voting.)

Top musical honors went to “Sweet Charity” from Bridgeport’s Downtown Cabaret Theater.

Acting honors also went to Lynda Gravatt (Hartford Stage’s “A Raisin in the Sun”), Bruce Connelly (“A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum” at Waterbury’s Seven Angels Theater) and Glenn Lawrence (debut, “Li’l Abner” at Goodspeed Opera House”).

Other winners: Clifton Taylor (lighting, “Journey’s End,” Westport Country Playhouse); Linda Fisher and Randall E. Klein (costumes, Westport Country Playhouse’s “David Copperfield”); Arielle Edwards (sound, Yale Repertory Theater’s “dance of the holy ghosts”); Owen Thompson (director of a musical, River Rep’s “The Mikado); Scott Thompson (choreography, “Sweet Charity”); and Tony Straiges (set design, Hartford Stage’s “The Learned Ladies of Park Avenue”).

Hartford’s TheaterWorks won the ensemble award for its production of “The Exonerated.” Hartford Stage’s “2 Pianos, 4 Hands” won as road show.
