The Huntington Takes Home 11 IRNE Awards

by:  Anne Morgan at 04/22/2010

The Independent Reviewers of New England (IRNE) Awards Ceremony was held at the Cyclorama at the BCA on Monday night. It was a great time, with the Huntington taking home 11 awards. While the honors definitely contributed to my enjoyment, I think they would have been fun even had we not won so many. It’s always a great time when the Boston theatre community gets together. There was lots of catching up with friends and collaborators and cheering them on. The awards are split into categories for large and smaller theatres, which I think made the night much more inclusive. After the food, drink, and mingling, we sat down at tables designated by Theatre Company and the awards began.

The evening began with David Grimm accepting the Best New Play award for The Miracle at Naples. Next Peter DuBois accepted for Francis O’Connor for Best Set Design for Two Men of Florence. Another design award went to Anita Yavich for her costumes for The Miracle at Naples. Maureen McGovern’s A Long and Winding Road took home the award for Best Solo Show. And Boston favorite Jacqui Parker took home an award for Best Supporting Actress in a Musical for her powerful performance in A Civil War Christmas.

August Wilson's Fences seemed to steal the show with 6 awards. It won Best Production and Kenny Leon won Best Director; he was not able to join us (he’s currently directing a Broadway production of Fences with Denzel Washington and Viola Davis), but he’ll be with us on Sunday for our Spotlight Spectacular! Managing Director Michael Maso accepted both Production and Director awards, promising that the Boston community hadn’t seen the last of Kenny or August Wilson. John Beasley (Troy) and Crystal Fox (Rose) were both honored for their acting. Ann Wrightson (Lighting) and Ben Emerson (Sound) were also on hand to accept their design awards.

It was also a good night for friends of the Huntington. Nancy E. Carroll (Present Laughter and others for the Huntington) was awarded the Partnership in Performance award for her work opposite Paula Plum. Nancy returned to the Huntington this week for rehearsals for Prelude to a Kiss. Timothy John Smith, also in Prelude, won for Best Supporting Actor in a Musical. Congratulations to all!
