Three Moments of Graceposted by brad at 11:45 AM
On Monday night the company attended the 38th Annual Los Angeles Drama Critics Circle Awards. Our 2006 production of GRACE was nominated for recognition in three categories. Playwright Craig Wright was nominated in the writing and adaptation category, Damaso was nominated in the Directing cateogry, and the show/company was nominated in the Best Production category. We were stoked to hear GRACE called out all three times as an award recipient, recognized in each category it was nominated for. Fun stuff.
I realize these could be anyone's hands and awards.... but they're ours. Seriously.
It was a great night for LA's small and emerging theatre companies, putting on an impressive showing with recipients from Boston Court, Chance Theater and The Blank among others, and Circle X Theatre Company took home a whopping total of 7 awards for their production of Brothers Karamozov. Also great to see Laurence Fishburne recognized for his outstanding performance in FENCES, here at the Playhouse last year. You can see the complete list of award recipients here.
Seeing as how we had a really weird ending to our run of GRACE, this night was a fun way for Furious to officially celebrate the close of that show as well as fun way to kick off our fifth season.
Podcast interviews and behind the scenes info from our first world premiere, Matt Pelfrey's An Impending Rupture of the Belly, are coming soon.
Thanks to all who keep coming... and reading.
Stay tuned and Be Furious.
