The megaselling revival of “Hello, Dolly!” and the sleeper success “Come From Away” walked away with five awards each from the Outer Critics Circle Awards, underscoring each show’s status as a contender to watch in the upcoming races in the Tony Awards.

Some of the Tony season’s big frontrunners — notably “Dear Evan Hansen” and many elements of “Natasha, Pierre and the Great Comet of 1812” — weren’t eligible for the OCC Awards this year since they were considered last season in their Off Broadway incarnations. That left “Come From Away” to earn five honors including new Broadway musical, book (Irene Sankoff and David Hein), director (Christopher Ashley), featured actress (Jenn Colella) and sound design (Garth Owen).

“Dolly!,” which is the clear frontrunner in the Tony race for best revival, earned top musical revival as well as acting awards for star Bette Midler and featured actor Gavin Creel, among other awards. Tony nominated play “Oslo,” fresh off its win in the same category at the Lortel Awards, took the title for top Broadway play.

The winning actors at the OCCs made for a starry list that started with Midler and included Kevin Kline (“Present Laughter”), Laura Linney, Cynthia Nixon (both for “The Little Foxes”) and Danny DeVito (“The Price”).

The 67th annual Outer Critics Circle Awards were announced May 8 ahead of a ceremony set for May 25 at Sardi’s. The full list of winners follows.
