Awards season is upon us! We now have the 2017 nomination lists for all the major NYC theatre awards – Tonys, Drama Desk, Outer Critics Circle, and Lucille Lortel. Nominees are not announced for the Theatre World Awards or the Obie Awards, but their ceremonies will be held in the coming weeks as well. There are several hot contenders in all categories, and regionally this gives us a good idea of what plays and musicals we can look forward to seeing on our stages in the next five-to-ten years!
(Shout out also to all the nominees in the Capital Region’s inaugural High School Musical Theatre Awards. Winners will be announced on May 20 at 7 pm at Proctors.)
