OBIES tonight

I'm off to the Obies right now--thanks to my gracious employers at the Voice.

Alexis says she'll be blogging it. So see if she keeps to that. (And I expect the awards might be up here as early as tonight.)

I myself will leave the laptop behind. But will report on the highlights tomorrow, so tune in.

Meanwhile...predictions? Hard to say. One of the fun things about the Obies is not even knowing who's nominated! Not that I have any inside knowledge at all, but some names, plays, and companies I expect to hear mentioned include:

In the Heights, Bill T. Jones, The Voysey Inheritance, LABrynth Theatre Company, Durango, Emergence-See, The Transport Group, Jack Goes Boating, The Wooster Group, Eisa Davis, Wallace Shawn, The Mint Theatre, and the Signature Theatre August Wilson series.

Again, that's just my guess. Not inside dope. And not even necessarily my own preferences.
