Terminus tops 2013 Toronto Theatre Critics' Awards 

May 23, 2013 - The Toronto Theatre Critics' Awards were announced today - with Outside the March's production of Mark O'Rowe's play Terminus the most celebrated production of the season.

Presented as the inaugural show of Mirvish Productions' Off-Mirvish subscription series after its premiere at the SummerWorks Festival, Terminus picked up four awards, including best production and best director of a play for Mitchell Cushman.

The Book of Mormon, another Mirvish presentation currently playing at the Princess of Wales, was the second most lauded show of the year; it was named best production of a musical, while Casey Nicholaw and Trey Parker were named best director of a musical.

Now in their third year, the Toronto Theatre Critics' Awards are voted upon by critics representing five of the city's newspapers and weeklies: The Globe and Mail (J. Kelly Nestruck); The Grid (Martin Morrow); NOW (Glenn Sumi); The National Post (Robert Cushman); and the Toronto Star (Richard Ouzounian). The critics considered shows that opened between June of 2012 and May of 2013. Awards will be given out at the Spoke Club (600 King St. West) at a date to be determined.

NB: During deliberations, jurors who had a conflict of interest with an eligible production were not allowed to nominate or vote for that production - except in the case of a tie.

Full list of winners below.
