The 2016-2017 Joseph Jefferson Equity Award nominations were announced this week. There were 158 nominations in 33 categories for Chicago Equity theatrical productions during the period August 1, 2016 through July 31, 2017. Congratulations to all of the performers, artistic and creative teams, companies and the staff and support system that brings so much high quality theatre to the Chicago area. Lots of great work and countless nights supporting Equity and Non-Equity theatre by the Jeff Committee. See the Complete List of Nominees and plan to attend the 49th Annual Jeff Equity Awards ceremony on November 6th at Drury Lane Theatre.
Over the next few weeks, we will feature past conversations that include many of the outstanding performances and productions over the past year. This week, we are spotlighting Angela Ingersoll(End of the Rainbow), James Earl Jones II (Scottsboro Boys) and Matt Crowle(Crazy for You). We have also posted a memorable November 2013 conversation with Tribune critic and author Chris Jones recorded live at Hubbard Inn. Enjoy!
