Mark Strong and Helen McCrory win at Critics' Circle Awards
This year's critics' picks also included Gypsy and King Charles III
The Young Vic revival of A View from the Bridge scooped two awards, one for Strong's performance as Eddie Carbone - which he will reprise when the production transfers to the West End next month - and the other for director Ivo van Hove.
Other winners, chosen by a ballot of Critics' Circle members, include Jonathan Kent's Chichester revival of Gypsy starring Imelda Staunton, and Antony Sher for his performance as Falstaff in the RSC's Henry IV Parts I & II.
The winners were announced during a ceremony held at the Prince of Wales Theatre earlier today (27 January 2015).
