It’s time for the Gypsy Rose Lee Awards, awarded by theater reviewers and writers banded together as the Seattle Theater Writers. The name of the awards was chosen to honor one of Seattle’s best-known locally-born theatrical talents, Gypsy Rose Lee. This is the third year for the annual awards.

As is becoming customary, the nominations encompass a wide range of professional theatrical performances across the Greater Seattle area. The awards are meant to encourage the general public to consider “tasting” live stage performances that they might not otherwise even hear about.

Winners will be announced in a couple of weeks. The nine Seattle theater writers and reviewers that participated in this year’s slate include: Jose Amador (Seattle Star), Alice Kaderlan (Feet First), Rosemary Jones (The Examiner), me (Miryam Gordon), Jerry Kraft (Seattle Actor), Nancy Worssam (Arts Stage/Seattle Rage), Michael Strangeways (Gay Seattle Scene), Dusty Somers (Blogcritics) and Scott Taylor (Seattle Stage Revue). All members see and review a significant number of performances throughout the year in order to recommend nominees for excellence in theater.
