The Essential Theatre would like to congratulate some of our friends and collaborators on their recent Suzi nominations:
Robin Bloodworth, nominated as Best Leading Actor for “Ethan Frome” at Theatre in the Square, worked with us years ago in a terrific Lee Blessing play called “Down the Road”.
Ellen McQueen, nominated as Best Featured Actress for “Ethan Frome”, directed our productions of “Sally and Glen at the Palace”, “Ice Glen”, “After Ashley”, “Night Travels”, “Charm School” and “A Lovely Undertow”.
William S. Murphey, nominated as Best Featured Actor for “Around the World In 80 Days” at Theatrical Outfit, appeared in the very first Essential Theatre production, years ago — a double bill of “Witches Brew” and “Ghost Story”, and later in “And They Dance Real Slow In Jackson”.
Will the Essential Theatre ever be eligible for the Suzis? You can help us make that happen by making a donation! It’s all about the size of our budget, so why not become a financial supportor of the Essential Theatre today?
