Lortel Awards

And just for completeness, let me not forget the Off-Broadway-exclusive Lortel Awards, being presented this Monday, May 1.

If nothing else all these lists at least help remind us of some smaller shows that received serious attention and some praise months ago that won't be remembered at Tony time: Atlantic's Pinter one-acts, Rinne Groff's Ruby Sunrise, Lois Smith's now-legendary performance in Trip to Bountiful, Harlem Classical Theatre's revival of Adrienne Kennedy's Funnyhouse of a Negro...

Reminds us all that maybe New York theatre isn't necessarily in that bad shape after all.
