    Congratulations, everybody. I can’t wait until the citations are posted — those are always great reading.

  2. Mahonri Stewart says:

    No award in Drama?

  3. Mahonri Stewart says:

    I would have thought that WWJD was a shoe in this year for the Drama Award…

  4. Th. says:


    I doubt WWJD qualified for last year. It’s older than that. Great play though.

    This is an exciting batch of awards. Some things here I’m anxious to learn more about.

  5. I just want to take the opportunity to say THANK YOU for that generous award! What a surprise! Also, to weigh in on Mahonri’s plays. A ROOF OVERHEAD is now playing in our Little Brown Theatre. (Two days left, Friday and Saturday.) I was so impressed with the writing of that play! Just wanted to voice my opinion. The reviewer paid more attention to the production. But the writing was FANTASTIC. Thank you, Mahonri!
