Kudos for nytheatre.com Contributors

Today we got some very good news about some of the folks who write reviews for nytheatre.com. Several of our contributors were nominated last night for New York Independent Theatre Awards! As a past winner myself, I have an idea how these folks are probably feeling right now. Congratulations--this accolade is richly deserved!

These are the people I'm talking about:
  • Gyda Arber, nominated for her inventive production Suspicious Package
  • Nat Cassidy, a triple threat: nominated for writing and producing The Reckoning of Kit & Little Boots and for directing Any Day Now
  • Ivanna Cullinan, nominated for her delightful performance in The Granduncle Quadrilogy: Tales from the Land of Ice
  • Edward Elefterion, nominated for his choreography/movement for Shadow of Himself (Ed was named Best Director last year)
  • David Fuller and Judith Jarosz of Theater Ten Ten, whose production of The 103rd Annual Performance of Ruddigore, or The Witch's Curse, Presented by Murgatroyd's Hospital for Mental Rehabilitation, Ruddy Gore Maine is nominated for Best Production of a Musical
  • David Ian Lee, nominated for his leading performance in The Reckoning of Kit & Little Boots and also as a member of the ensemble of Universal Robots

(And speaking of Universal Robots: that play by Mac Rogers, which is published in my anthology Plays and Playwrights 2008, received several other nominations, including a nod for Best Full-Length Script.)

So, hearty applause for these talented folks. I appreciate the great service they perform for the indie theater community and am very glad to see them honored in this way!
