Ovation Nominees Announced for LA Theatre
This morning, the LA Stage Alliance announced the nominees for the 2007 Ovations Awards, which are the only peer-judged theatre awards in Los Angeles and considered by the LA Times to be the "...highest-profile contest for local theatre..."
30 categories in all, one of our favorite "LAist Recommends" from this year, "The Long Christmas Ride Home" at the Tribe Theatre in the NoHo Arts District, has been nominated for several awards including best ensemble, direction and intimate theatre.
Every nomination in the Best Touring Company category went to the Center Theatre Group, who run the Mark Taper, Ahmanson and Kirk Douglas Theatres.
The awards ceremony will be on Monday, November 12 at 7:30 p.m. in the Orpheum Theatre. To see the full nomination list, you can download the PDF at the Ovation Awards website.
