2013's Drammy Winners

Posted by Alison Hallett on Tue, Jun 11, 2013 at 1:44 PM

Joshua Weinstein, Body Awareness

As promised, this year's Drammy winners are below the jump. I have a few stray observations that boil down to "no one ever agrees with me":

Glad Bryce Earhart from The Aliens won a young performer award, but I still think The Aliens was one of the better shows of the year. Better than Body Awareness, which won a "best production" nod. (I'm glad the CoHo got recognized, though; they've been doing great work lately.)

This is an unlikely sentence: James Sharinghousen was good as Toad in Oregon Children's Theatre's charming A Year with Frog and Toad, but Frog was robbed! Joshua Stenseth was the highlight of that show.

I'm going to start Mercury theater awards just so I can give one to Vana O'Brien in The Gin Game. It's frankly ridiculous that she didn't win this year; that performance was brilliant. And I'm also indignant that Gretchen Corbett was overlooked for her turn in Mother Teresa Is Dead, another top-notch performance.

The full list is after the jump!
