The Gap wins the Barrymore Award for Outstanding New Play/Musical
I’m thrilled to share that The Gap was awarded the Independence Foundation Award for an Outstanding New Play/Musical at the Philadelphia Barrymore Awards.
This marks the my second nomination, and first win, for the award. The Azuka Theatre production of The Gap also received the Barrymore for Outstanding Sound Design (by designer Mike Kiley), along with seven additional nominations.
I'm delighted and honored that the Azuka Theatre premiere production of The Gap is nominated for nine Barrymore Awards--tying it as the most-nominated play of the Philadelphia season alongside the People's Light production of Skeleton Crew. It's a thrill to have the company's work recognized, and we'll be celebrating the award results alongside the Philadelphia theater community on November 5th.
Here are our nominations:
Outstanding Overall Production of a Play Outstanding Direction of a Play Outstanding Supporting Performance in a Play: Jaime Maseda, Rod/Alien Outstanding Supporting Performance in a Play: Alice Yorke, Nicole Outstanding Media Design (Jorge Cousineau) Outstanding Sound Design (Mike Kiley) Outstanding Ensemble in a Play Independence Foundation Award for an Outstanding New Play/Musical The Philadelphia Award
