2015 Drama Desk Awards NOMINATIONS Announced today at 54 Below by Judith Light & Jessie Mueller

In shock and awe, as the Drama Desk announced their award NOMINATIONS for the Best of the Best of the Theater season 2014-15. I have so much respect for what these dedicated people do. The Nominating Committee sees something like over 270 plays a year!!! It staggers me the level of commitment to theater that these people maintain.

And headed for the eighth year(I think) by the valiant, unstoppable Barbara Siegel (yes, she’s married to the famous Scott) once again this year, the nominations excite and confound me. I’m glad for instance that Ben Miles and Lydia Leonard were both nominated for Best Actor In a Play and Best Supporting Actress In a Play for “Wolf Hall” for playing respectively Thomas Cromwell and Anne Boleyn.

But where oh where was “The Heidi Chronicles”?!? And any recognition for Elizabeth Moss’ and Bryce Pinkham’s terrific performances? I liked this revival better than I liked the original production, which I thought was horribly anti-gay.(But it made David Hyde-Pierce’s career in the same role as Pinkham.) But Pinkham and Moss did both get nominated for the Outer Critic’s Circle. I hope they repeat at the Tonys.

They probably will as will Ben Miles and Lydia Leonard. You see, the Drama Desk has the daunting task of nominating EVERYTHING that can be seen in any given year on any stage in New York City. Broadway, Off-Broadway and Off-Off Broadway. Which is why I have so much respect for them.

In other words, quality theater can be rewarded no matter how small or how big the stage it occurs on is or how many people see it. Of course, Superstars like Dame Helen Mirren in “The Audience” and Bradley Cooper in the now closed “Elephant Man” were nominated for Best Actress and Best Actor in a play. Mirren will totally win this award, as she will win many, many others this season, and for Best Actor I think it’s between Cooper and Miles. But more on that later.

Past Drama Desk(and Tony) winners Judith Light and Jessie Mueller announced the nominees at ceremony today in the swank boite 54 Below.

R. Gurney’s The Wayside Motor Inn: Kelly AuCoin, Jon DeVries, Quincy Dunn-Baker, Rebecca Henderson, Marc Kudisch, Jenn Lyon, Lizbeth Mackay, David McElwee, Ismenia Mendes, and Will Pullen. To Bess Wohl, the Sam Norkin Off-Broadway Award: For establishing herself as an important voice in New York theater, and having a breakthrough year with the eclecticAmerican Hero, Pretty Filthy, and Small Mouth Sounds. Her writing expresses sensitivity, compassion, and humor with a sure hand. To John Douglas Thompson: For invigorating theater in New York through his commanding presence, classical expertise, and vocal prowess.  This season he demonstrated exceptional versatility in Tamburlaine the Great, and The Iceman Cometh. To Ensemble Studio Theatre: For its unwavering commitment to producing new works by American playwrights since 1968, and enriching this season with productions of When January Feels Like Summer, Winners, and Five Times in One Night. EST’s Youngblood program fostered and nurtured Hand to God, setting Tyrone off on his devilish path to Broadway.              To Andy Blankenbuehler: For his inspired and heart-stopping choreography in Hamilton, which is indispensible to the musical’s storytelling. His body of work is versatile, yet a dynamic and fluid style is consistently evident. When it’s time to “take his shot,” Blankenbuehler hits the bull’s-eye.   Note: Eligibility and award category designations for the productions under consideration this season were determined by the Drama Desk Board of Directors. Because of the abundance of work throughout the season, the Board also authorized increasing the number of nominees allowed in select categories.   Hand to God was considered in the 2011/2012 season in its first production at Ensemble Studio Theatre. New elements were considered in the MCC production in the 2013/2014 season. There were no new elements in the Broadway transfer.   Fun Home was considered in its run at the Public Theatre in the 2013/2014 season. It received nominations for Outstanding Musical, Outstanding Featured Actress in a Musical, Outstanding Director of a Musical, Outstanding Music, Outstanding Lyrics and Outstanding Book of a Musical.   Disgraced was considered in its Off-Broadway premiere at Lincoln Center in the 2012/2013 season, and only new actors and technical staff were eligible in the Broadway transfer.   The 39 Steps was considered in its initial Broadway production in the 2007/2008 season and won for Unique Theatrical Experience.   Nominations by Numbers   13        Hamilton 12        An American in Paris 9          Something Rotten! 7          The Visit 6          The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time 5          Honeymoon in Vegas 5          Side Show 5          Wolf Hall 4          Deliverance 4          Fly by Night 4          The Last Ship 4          Let the Right One In 4          On the 20th Century 4          You Got Older 2          Airline Highway 3          Between Riverside/Crazy 3          The City of Conversation 3          It Shoulda Been You 3          On the Town 3          Our Lady of Kibeho 2          Allegro 2          The Audience 2          The Elephant Man 2          Fashions for Men 2          The Fatal Weakness 2          Finding Neverland 2          The Fortress of Solitude 2          Found 2          The Iceman Cometh 2          The King and I 2          The Lion 2          My Mañana Comes 2          Pretty Filthy 2          Tamburlaine the Great 2          The Wayside Motor Inn 2          You Can’t Take It With You 1          Application Pending 1          Atomic 1          The Belle of Amherst 1          Big Love 1          Catch Me! 1          Donagoo 1          Everybody Gets Cake 1          Every Brilliant Thing 1          Forbidden Broadway Comes Out Swinging! 1          Generations 1          Ghost Quartet 1          Ghosts 1          Gigi 1          I’m Gonna Pray for You So Hard 1          The Human Symphony 1          Into the Woods 1          It’s Only a Play 1          John & Jen 1          Just Jim Dale 1          Lennon: Through a Glass Onion 1          Lonesome Traveler 1          Kill Me Like You Mean It 1          Lives of the Saints 1          An Octoroon 1          The Other Mozart 1          Pageant 1          The Pianist of Willesden Lane 1          The Pigeoning 1          Pocatello 1          Queen of the Night 1          The Rap Guide to Religion 1          Rasheeda Speaking 1          Rocket to the Moon 1          Rococo Rouge 1          Skylight 1          Sticks and Bones 1          To the Bone 1          The Village Bike 1          A Walk in the Woods 1          Wiesenthal  

Jessie Mueller a Former Drama Desk Winners(and Tony winners, too) looked lovely and elegant in complementary shades of blue.(see picture below). And Mueller, looking every each the poised and coiffed star that she has become, enthused, “It’s so exciting sitting in the audience instead of being on stage and seeing all these wonderful plays and musicals. Each one so different from the others. It’s thrilling. I love it!”

Judith Light! Winner! Outstanding Featured Actress in a Play! “The Assembled Parties”

The wonderful Judith Light just won the Drama Desk Award for Best Featured Actress in a Play for Richard Greenberg’s “The Assembled Parties.” She also won in this same category last year for “Other Dessert Cities.” I told her she would win the Drama Desk and then the Tony, too, last year, and SHE DID! Now you can see her surprised reaction when I said history was about to repeat itself, and she would win again. AND SHE DID! She’s also nominated for a Tony so maybe that will happen AGAIN this year! It’s very unusual for there to be two consecutive Tony wins in a row. But then I don’t remember this ever happening with the Drama Desk either. So….

If anyone one can pull off this impossible feat, it’s the much loved Judith Light!

Drama Desk Award Winners! “Matilda”, “Vanya and Sonia…” and “Pippin”

Well, the Drama Desk Awards are FINALLY over! Just finished at Town Hall at an unbelievable four hours in length! That’s without commercials! 

That’s just how long it takes and its’ unfortunate that by the end of the fourth hour everybody and his mother are all getting very, very tired of the onstage band playing “Ask Me How Do I Feel?” over and over and over again until you could scream.

But since this is not a televised event(although this year you could watch live online at theatermania.com) nobody’s going to put the brakes on it. 

The last presenters, the always too= loud Beth Leavel and a sleepy looking Brian Stokes Mitchell, looked like they had just rolled out of bed to announce —wait for it—the last THREE winners! This was at like 10:45 pm or so EST. And it started at EIGHT! It’s as long as the Oscars!

Two of the last awards of the lonnnng night, Best Lyrics and Best Musical went to “Matilda”! Yea! And Bertie Carvel also won for his frighteningly brilliant hammer-thrower from hell, Miss Agatha Trunchbull, in the Outstanding Featured Actor category. For the Tonys next month he’s in lead and he’ll win there, too, I’m predicting it right now!  Bertie FTW!

“Matilda” also won for Best Book. Playwright Terence McNally was a bit flummoxed when nobody accepted the award and was about to move on to the next one, when British director Matthew Warchus bounded up onstage to accept it for the absent Dennis Kelly, who is, of course, back home in Blighty. Ditto Best Set went to “Matilda” and that made by my count, five, and made “Matilda” the biggest winner of the evening. Warchus also accepted Best Lyrics for the absent Tim Minchin.

Warchus quipped “I have to keep accepting awards for every category and
not my own!” He surprisingly lost Best Director of a Muscial to Diane Paulus for the explosive combination of circus and music and dance that is “Pippin.”

So I’m happy for the “Matilda” crew. As you all know, dear readers, dear lovers of theater that I know you all are, that was my best of the best-ties this year.

I was also happy for the wonderful Jayne Houdyshell, who got a career achievement award, and gave a very touching, elegant acceptance speech. It seemed like she got a standing ovation. Well, it was a very LOUD,long ovation. 

Cicely Tyson who won Outstanding Actress in a Play, won for “The Trip to Bountiful” DID get a standing ovation. And she had to be helped on to the stage and then bowed low and graciously to the audience. Something I’d never seen before. And she certainly deserved it.

She thanked the late playwright Horton Foote, who is finally having the success on Broadway that eluded him all his life. 

“Pippin” came in second with four awards for Best Revival of a Musical, Best Director and Choreography, and the astounding Andrea Martin deservedly won Outstanding Featured Actress in a Musical.

“Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike” won Best Play for a white-haired Christopher Durang, who claimed “This was my OLD play.” and that the stairs leading up to the stage “were the most stairs I’ve climbed in ages.”

I am going to cut to the case and just say that in the coming days, you will be seeing on this blog the nominees who went on to win tonight. 

I can’t wait to bring you Michael Urie, who best solo performance over Bette Middler! No! I’m not kidding! And I loved Bette in “I’ll Eat You Last” but she’s going home with only a Drama Desk Nomination. She was famously snubbed by the Tonys.I have always ADORED Bette and I feel awful for her. She’s BRILLLLLIANT in “Eat You”

Also coming to you right here is Jayne Houdyshell, and also Laura Osnes who won Best Actress in a Musical for “Rodgers and Hammerstein’s Cinderella”(Yes, that’s the official title) and also Tim Michin who as I said won big tonight for “Matilda” and who was present and accounted for at the Drama Desk Nominee Reception, which is beginning to appear on my You Tube Channel as you’re reading this. You’ll also see winners Judith Light for “Outstanding Featured Actress in a Play”, “The Assembled Parties” and Richard Kind for “Outstanding Featured Actor in a Play,” “The Big Knife.”

My show is at http://www.youtube.com/StephenHoltShow

And all the winners should soon be up on http://www.dramadeskawards.com and also on http://www.theatermania.com.

Stay tuned!

 

 

Super Bowl Special on “The Stephen Holt Show”

I have never acknowledged or even attempted to acknowledge the highest rated TV event show of the year, the Super Bowl…until this year when I had the good fortune of have the rising young actor Bill Dawes, as a guest on my show for the Broadway play “Lombardi.”

“Lombardi” as everyone and his brother must know by now is the lONNNNG-running Bway play about the late, legendary Green Bay Packers coach Vince Lombardi.

You can see my two part interview with Bill Dawes now in my Main Frame on my YouTube Channel. www.youtube.com/StephenHoltShow

And yes, it’s about football, and yes, I learned that the Green Bay Packers, even without their late Coach Lombardi, is still in it to win it in the Super Bowl tomorrow night in Dallas, where it’s snowing!?!

Bill Dawes is a very interesting, super sexy, hot young actor who is made even more interesting by his second career as a stand-up comic. He’s in demand all over the country for stand-up gigs and I was blown away by his act, which was hilariously non-stop funny. Oh yes, and sexy, too. And for the record he’s straight…but he keeps getting cast in all these gay parts…which is fine with me. And all my gay readers, too, will like him. They’ll really like him.

And “Lombardi” continues to run and thrive on Broadway when all the other straight plays that opened at the beginning of the season have closed. Why? Well, it’s a damn good, solid play and the performances are all first rate, but what “Lombardi” is drawing like flies, are the Sports Fans, who, if they can’t get to the Super Bowl, can see the Green Bay Packers and their great coach and their inspiring story playing out IN A THEATER?!?! When does an audience show up in green and gold shirts and wearing cheese on their heads? NEVER!

Between “Lombardi” airing in my NYC timeslot last night, and the Queen of England coming out in public and saying she found “The King’s Speech” which is about her parents “moving and enjoyable”, I really do feel like SUDDENLY I’m riding the Zeitgeist! Whoo-hooo! Next stop, the BAFTA awards!

I Go to See a Bway show “Lombardi” in A BLIZZZZZAARD!

I can’t believe I did it, but I did it! It’s the middle of the worst, wildest snow weather and blizzard with SNOW THUNDER! I HEARD IT! Evidently there was lightening, too, but I didn’t see it because the snow was falling so thickly and fastly( Is that even a word????) and the wind was nearly knocking me over! WHY WAS I GOING OUT IN THIS?!?

Well, I just had to see my next guest on my TV show the brilliant Bill Dawes in “Lombardi”! At the Circle in the Square downstairs of “Wicked” and guess what? The audience showed up!!

I saw Bill afterwards and he commented that the audience was “so quiet”.

“Well,” I said, “They’re all exhausted getting here.” But they were really enjoying it!

I mean with 30-40mph winds, and the thickest, heaviest snow I’d ever seen in my life, it was a miracle that we all made it there in this Blizzard of 2010.

I mean, they always talk about the blizzard of 1888 as being THE WORST in recorded history. I think that occured in March of that year….And NO I wasn’t around for it. But this is certainly going to be in the record books. I’ve never seen anything like it.

It does transform the city. But in a scary not pretty way. It was like a hurricane, but with snow.

And how was the play? MARVAHLOUS, DAHLING! This is my second time seeing it, and I hate football and know nothing about it. But “Lombardi” has got me to thinking about it and liking it, well, just a little bit.

It’s interesting how well and simply done this play is and that even if you don’t know anything about football, it pulls you in and you enjoy it. It’s also interesting to note that this play is reaching an audience that doesn’t usually come to Broadway, football fans.

And football fans are used to braving bad weather to see The Game. But this blizzard phenomenon shows you how dedicated this audience was. To get there. And the actors, too! I heard people saying “Well, the show must go on.” And interestingly there was a day-after-Christmas Sunday MATINEE, too! As well as a 7pm Sunday night performance. They had Christmas Eve off, then they had a show Christmas Day night, which was a Saturday, and then two on Sunday. So since they performed earlier that day, the actors, including stars Dan Luria and Judith Light were presumably right near by or actually still in the theater itself. That’s what dressing rooms are for!

And every show on Broadway played last night during the Blizzard! Amazing!

The play which I practically risked my life to see ~ is about the life of Vince Lombardi, the famous Notre Dame football coach. And it’s a damn good play. I saw it first in late October right after it opened. And since it’s been such a long time between then and now(I’ve seen enough movies and plays to last most people a lifetime. Between the Drama Desk possiblities and the Oscar seekers. PHEW! But it’s been wonderful, too, of course. Or only as good as the movies and the plays you’re seeing.)it’s been such a long time I just HAD to see it again.

And I’m sooo glad I did! How often do you see a Broadway play, stars intact, in a BLIZZARD?!? I’d never done THAT before!

And the entire cast just gave it their all!

And I knew, I just knew that “Lombardi” was here for the long haul on the Great White Way, which really IS white right now!

It’s a solid endearing portrait of a good, Catholic marriage. Lombardi is brought to memorably vivid life by veteran character actor Dan Luria, who looks just like Lombardi, and  who, if this play keeps running and running as it is, he may be nominated for the Tony for Best Actor. And certainly the Drama Desk will remember his strong, endearing performance come awards time which is at the end of April. “Lombardi” is the only play that opened this fall, and Broadway had the healthiest, most robust fall season that I can ever remember, that is continuing to run into the New Year and beyond! “Driving Miss Daisy” it’s been announced is also continuing through the Spring. It could be Dan Luria vs. James Earl Jones for the Best Actor Tony Award.

 And Judith Light as Lombardi’s conflicted but devoted wife is a revelation and utterly wonderful and award-ready herself.

This play is really about the transition of an Englewood, New Jersey couple to the rural mid-west. Mrs. Lombardi (Light) gets an Atlas, when she knows that she and her husband are going to be perhaps re-locating and exclaims “I can’t even FIND Green Bay!”

Lombardi “It’s in Wisconsin.”

And my upcoming guest the superhumanly handsome Bill Dawes, plays the always-in-trouble blond heart-throb(every football play has to have one) real life football hero Paul Hornug, in a performance that is just as strong as the leads. He’s also a red-hot stand-up comedian, too! But more on that later! He’s on his way to a BIIIIIG career in either as a serious actor OR a comedian but probably both!

I’ll let you know what Superstar-of-the-future Bill Dawes is going to be on my show! Coming up soon, too are Ryan Gosling, Michelle Willaims and Ben Barnes!!! You’ll be able to see them soon on my You Tube Channel www.youtube.com/StephenHoltShow
