P.R.: NOMINATIONS FOR THE SECOND ANNUAL STAGE RAW THEATER AWARDS


STAGE RAW

ANNOUNCES WINNERS FOR

SECOND ANNUAL

"STAGE RAW" AWARDS!

 

April 25, 2016...Professional Los Angeles intimate theater companies and their friends sold out Los Angeles Theatre Center to support the second-ever STAGE RAW THEATRE AWARDS .  Picking up where the LA WEEKLY Awards left off, and hosted by the Independent Shakespeare Co. and Dr. Pinch and Pinchtones, the best of 99-seat theatre was celebrated in an exuberant and emotional evening that put a "Raw" spotlight on the year's best work.

 

For a career of promoting new plays in Los Angeles at his Skylight Theatre - not to mention his recent mediated discussions with Actors Equity Association, on behalf of the region's smaller theaters, STAGE RAW honored GARY GROSSMAN with its Career Achievement Award in one of the evening's most moving speeches and moments. Another highlight was this year's Queen of the Angels Award winner Highways' LEO GARCIA whose rousing speech and entrance were both memorable.
