NEW YORK (AP) — The New York Drama Critics' Circle has voted "Fun Home" the season's best new musical and "The Night Alive" and "All the Way" as best plays.

Conor McPherson's "The Night Alive," led by Jim Norton and which played at the Atlantic Theater Company, won best new play, while "All the Way," the Broadway play led by Bryan Cranston about the tense first year of Lyndon Johnson's presidency, won best new American play.

The Circle is composed of two dozen drama critics from daily newspapers, magazines, wire services and websites based in the New York metropolitan area. The Associated Press is a member. Awards have been handed out since 1936, making them the nation's second-oldest theater awards, after the Pulitzer Prize for drama.
