The New York Drama Critics’ Circle have announced the winners of the organization’s 77th annual awards on Monday night.

Stephen Karam’s “Sons of the Prophet” won the award for Best Play. Other finalists included Amy Herzog’s “4000 Miles” and Nina Raines’ “Tribes.” According to the NYDCC website, it took four rounds of voting to determine a clear winner. “Tribes” went on to win the award for Best Foreign Play, over Richard Bean’s British import “One Man, Two Guvnors.”

“Once,” which leads the pack of Tony competitors with 11 nominations, won Best Musical. Other finalists included “Death Takes a Holiday” and “Queen of the Mist.”

The group also decided to bestow two special citations. One went to the Signature Theatre Company on the occasion of its major expansion, and the other went to director Mike Nichols for career achievement. Nichols directed the current revival of “Death of a Salesman” on Broadway.

The awards will be presented at a private ceremony at Angus McIndoe Restaurant on May 14, 2011.
