2014 IRNE Award Nominations

by:  Thom Dunn at 02/19/2014

The 2014 IRNE Award Nominations have been announced, and the Huntington has received 29 nominations for 6 productions (including several nominations that are competing against each other in the same category, although we have no full category sweeps this year). For those who aren't familiar, the IRNE Awards are presented by the Independent Reviewers of New England, and recognize theatres on every scale on exemplary performances in the previous calendar year (as opposed to our traditional Producing Season Year of September to June).

Here's the breakdown of this year's Huntington nominees, in order of production:
