Yesterday I received the following:
Congratulations to Walter Thinnes whose play “Always With Me” is the week one winner of the 7thannual Players Theatre Short Play and Musical Festival – NYC 2017! This wonderful production was directed by Pamela Wilson with assistant director Chelsea Robinson. The talented cast included: Max Hanau as John, Kasey Moorhouse as Ellen and Sophie Larin as Susan.
In the recently completed festival the audience receives a ballot with their program and chooses two shows from the slate they see that night. Many audience members are there because they know a writer or cast member and they can be counted on voting for that show. In theory the second vote balances that factor. We had very few people we knew at the program which means we had a great preponderance of those second votes. And no wonder. Pamela and Chelsea did an amazing job and these actors are supremely talented. I am very proud of this production.
Soon I will catch up with very late commentary on the recent Tony Awards. Good thing I am only a blogger and not a journalist with a deadline!
