i am in tech this week, so posts will be few and far between, but i need to take a moment to congratulate some people i admire.
The Helen Hayes Awards nominations were announced yesterday, and i have four particular shout outs. there are other friends up for things... i still love you guys... but a girl has limited space and time to explain why she loves you.
i have competing emotions because the Outstanding Ensemble nominations include The Resistible Rise of Arturo Ui, which my hairyape was in and did a damn fine job on... and Dog Sees God: Confessions of a Teenage Blockhead. i designed the DSG costumes, and that cast has a special place in my heart. one of these shows must win--i can't decide.
congratulations also go out to one of my mentors from the grad school days who got three nominations for Outstanding Set Design. nice work DC!
and finally a congrats to my dear old pal aravail who is nominated for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Resident Play. this is his second year in a row in this category. way to rock it!
i am hopeful that i will be able to post pictures from Life is a Dream later this week. soon and soon!
