2011 New York City Stage Blog Awards

So, I figured that I would get my special selection of picks in before the Tony Awards airs the weekend. The population of candidates is my Theater Roll (i.e., productions experienced since the beginning of the calendar year). So, let's have some fun and the 2011 New York City Stage Blog awards go to...

  • Most Spooky: Hrach Titizian as the reprehensible Uday in Bengal Tiger at the Baghdad Zoo
  • Most Colorful: A tie between Yul Vaszquez as the sexually ambiguous Cousin Julio in The Mother_____with the Hat; and Jared Mason as a hillbilly Jerry Lee Lewis in Million Dollar Quartet
  • Most Exotic Location: The Asmat tribe location of New Guinea in The Man Who Ate Michael Rockefeller
  • Most Rigid: A tie between Melvin Huffnagle as the overachieving Jeremiah in Back Angels Over Tuskegee and Michael Balderrama as the competent Officer Cooper in When I Come To Die
  • Best Stage Transition: The disco transition from the bedroom to the dinner party scene in Marie and Bruce.
  • Best Nun: Kathleen Turner as the foulmouthed Sister Jamison Connelly in High
  • Best Debate: The healthy debate scene in By the Way, Meet Vera Stark featuring Daniel Breaker as Herb Forrester; Kimberly Gregory as the scholarly Carmen Levy-Green; and Karen as the militant Afua Assata Ejobo
