Uptown Players' production of Vanya and Sonya and Masha and Spike, in its category of Equity Play, won merely:
Best Play; Best Director (B.J. Cleveland); Best Actor (Bob Hess); Best Actress (Wendy Welch); Best Featured Actress (Julia Golder); Best Scenic Design (as Miss Piggy would say, "Moi!"); Best Lighting Design (Jason Foster), and Best Sound Design (B.J. Cleveland). Sadly even this role-call leaves out a few great people... I guess we had to leave a few awards for somebody else. Did we?
All kidding aside, congratulations to the whole Vanya, Sonya, Masha, and Spike team. It was a terrific show. And congratulations to all the other winners and nominees and patient un-ballyhooed-this-year worthies who do such good work all around the DFW area.
