This episode of Inside the Arts: Theatre Edition was broadcast on January 4, 2011. (There was no December broadcast due to inclement weather.) In this show, Jeff and 2011 Brickenden Outstanding Actor nominee Simon talk about awards with Richard Gilmore from The ARTS Project and The Brickenden Awards. Jeff also mentions the Playwrights Cabaret. After Richard highlights this weekend’s staged reading of Masquerade the conversation shifts to touring shows locally around London and region. Theatre Soup‘s Sookie Mei joins in the last quarter, and the conversation moves to the inherently arbitrary nature of awards and the suitability of judging behind-the-scenes categories.
[Note: Sookie mentions that Lady Windermere’s Fan is nominated in the Brickendens’ Outstanding Drama category. Each show’s producer chooses the categories in which a show will be entered at the time the show is registered for eligibility.]
