The Independent Reviewers of New England are hosting their 19th annual awards party on April 13th, at 7:30 PM, at the Cyclorama (BCA). The event is free, though they very much appreciate donations (feel free to contribute here). Here’s some info excerpted from their Indiegogo campaign site:
“The Independent Reviewers of New England proudly present the 2015 IRNE Awards. Once again, we host the biggest party of the year for greater Boston’s theater community for an evening of celebration and appreciation of a year in the theater. There are nominees in 54 categories, recognizing the companies, directors, playwrights, actors, designers, and choreographers who strive to keep Boston’s audiences enthralled with vibrant, exciting and challenging theater.
See this year’s nominees on our Facebook Page at this link: The 2015 IRNE Award Nominees.
On April 13, we gather again to present the awards at the Cyclorama at the Boston Center for the Arts (doors and the cash bar begins serving at 7 pm, awards presentations begin at 7:30 p.m.). All are invited and for the 19th consecutive year, we insist it’s FREE to attend, no ticket required. All are welcome to celebrate the theater community.”
The real drama that took place this year was the notorious absence of a Best Actress Fringe category. The reason for it is a bit complicated, and can be found here. Whether you agree or disagree with the committee’s decision, if you are interested in the local theater scene, you should probably come out to the party tomorrow.
