Tom Stoppard's International Triumph

It looks like a good few days for playwright Tom Stoppard. His new show "Rock N Roll" wins Best Play at the Evening Standard awards in the UK. And he's in New York for tonight's Broadway opening of part one of "The Coast Of Utopia," an epic scale work with such a massive cast it seemed doubtful the show would ever come here at all. "Caroline, Or Change" won Best Musical, though I was glad to see that at least "Sunday In The Park With George" won Best Design. And if someone can explain what an "Editor's Award" is for a theatrical production, I'd be obliged. Personally, I haven't a clue.
