As you may remember, I had a rollicking time choreographing Coriolanus for Actors' Shakespeare Project last March. Well, thanks to Robert Walsh's vision of a 20 minute marathon of movement sequences, a spectacular crew of actors who were willing to embrace it and an explosive sonic environment created by Stephen Serwacki, the production was just nominated for an IRNE Award for choreography.
It is truly an honor to be included, especially for a non-musical production, given the impressive list of the other choreography nominees:
Laurel Conrad for SEUSSICAL (Wheelock),
Anita Brockney and Donald Gregorio for THE PRODUCERS (
Matthew Romero for NINE (Longwood Players),
Tommy Rapley for THE SPARROW (
and Kelli Edwards for CABARET (New Rep).
Congratulations to Actor's Shakespeare Project's Duchess of Malfi also, as it was also nominated for three other categories:
Lighting Design (Jeff Adelberg),
Set Design (David Gammons),
and Sound Design (Cameron Willard).
We will have to keep our fingers and toes crossed until April 19th when the winners are announced at the Boston Center for the Arts.
