Equity Jeff Nominations Announced

The Jeff Nominations for equity theatres were announced yesterday, sparking the usual debate that award nominations often do.  Unfortunately, I haven’t seen a whole lot of the nominees, especially the musicals, but it seems like a good variety of productions were nominated.  I was a little peeved that the Goodman’s “Rock’n’roll” didn’t receive more nominations, but I think I was in a minority for absolutely loving it (maybe that’s just because I strive to be a pseudo-intellectual).  The Goodman had an exceptionally decent season this year, though I could have done without the overblown “Desire” and I fortunately missed the much despised “Turn of the Century.”  But I’m happy to see their “Crowd You’re In With” and “Boleros for the Disenchanted” get nominations.

For Best Production of a play, I’ll probably root for either “Ruined” or Graney’s “Edward II” (I’m a bit of a fan boy).  I also have a feeling “Ruined” will get best new play, considering Nottage already nabbed that Pulitzer Prize.  Heard of it?

But I never trust my own opinions.  Check out the list and see you what you think.
