At the ceremony, Paulette Haupt, founding artistic director of the Eugene O’Neill Theater Center’s National Music Theater Conference in Waterford, will be honored with the Connecticut Critics Circle’s Tom Killen Award, given in recognition of her 40 years of extraordinary achievement and service to Connecticut theater.

Other Broadway credits include The Scarlet Pimpernel, Rags, Getting Away with Murder, Lennon, The Rocky Horror Show, Jerome Robbins’ Broadway, The Addams Family, Finding Neverland and last season’s Tuck Everlasting. He was in the original off-Broadway production of Assassins.

Mann also has a recurring role in TV’s “Sense8.” Other television roles include the role of Earl Boyd in “All My Children.”

In film, Mann played bounty hunter Ug in the four “Critters” films. Other movie roles include  “A Chorus Line” and “A Circle on the Cross.”

He has also acted and starred in productions at UConn, including Les Miserables in Concert, Peter Pan, Man of La Mancha and My Fair Lady. Mann will direct the first show of the Nutmeg season, 1776, with performances starting June 1.
