Meadows Prize winner and noted Irish playwright Enda Walsh, who will be conducting a residency at the Meadows School this fall with fellow Meadows Prize recipient Michael Keegan-Dolan, has just been named the winner of an Outer Critics Circle Award for Best Book for the hit Broadway musical Once. Once is a modern-day tale about a street musician and a Czech immigrant who meet in Dublin, and is based on the Academy Award-winning 2007 film written and directed by John Carney.
The Outer Critics Circle, a group of theater writers outside of New York, also awarded Once the Best Musical and Best Director of a Musical awards.
Once also has been nominated for 11 Tony Awards, more than any other Broadway show, including a nomination for Walsh for Best Book of a Musical. The Tony Awards will be held June 10.
