StageSceneLA is a Los Angeles based theatre website devoted to reviewing and supporting local theatre. I don’t know how he does it, but Steven Stanley literally sees hundreds of shows each year.
My musical, Group, was honored to have Steven see Group at the Powerhouse Theatre during our previews back in December of 2010 and then again during our encore performances in the June 2011 Hollywood Fringe Festival. Both times he gave us a “Wow” his signature exclamation for his favorite shows.
This morning, September 12, 2011, Steven Stanley released his picks for the best of 2010 – 2011 theatre awards, known as Scenies. A full list of the award recipients can be found here: http://www.stagescenela.com/2011/09/stagescenela-announces-best-of-2010-2011-awards/
There are many awards, but if you saw literally hundreds of shows every year, there would be many you would like to recognize as well 🙂
The awards that Group won include:
OUTSTANDING NEW MUSICALS OF 2010-2011
BEST PERFORMANCE BY A FEATURED ACTOR/MUSICAL (Isaac Wade)
OUTSTANDING PRODUCTION, MUSICAL
OUTSTANDING DIRECTION OF A MUSICAL (Richard Tatum)
OUTSTANDING MUSICAL DIRECTION/INTIMATE THEATER (Adam Emperor Southard)
Technically, I was the co-music director with my songwriting partner Josh Allan Dykstra.
What an honor to be included amongst such respected and amazing shows.
