So, great news. My production of Man of La Mancha is nominated for 3 awards. My Cervantes is up for Best Actor, my Aldonza for Best Female Singer and also our House Management team. There's also a chance we'll be up for Best Overall Show, but that is only announced on the night before the awards.

The Association of Irish Musical Societies. About 140 Musical Societies across the country and the standard varies from very amateur to almost professional standard so its a big deal.

Well, there's 5 shows nominated, and there's about 7 in serious contention, so hopefully!

Just being in serious contention is a great achievement. Am I remembering correctly that this was your first directorship?

That's wonderful, Alatar! Congratulations! When is the awards ceremony?

Hypothetical question: If one were going to be in New York on vacation toward the end of the month, and one were thinking about buying Broadway tickets, and Evan Hansen was already sold out, which of the other currently playing shows would make a good second choice? (further suppose that one had already seen Hamilton, Wicked, and Phantom at some point in the past)

Wow; thanks for the thorough response. I was leaning Chicago given that Evan Hansen is sold out, but you've got me intrigued about The Play That Goes Wrong now... (Sunset Boulevard is taking a break the week I'll be there :|)

Note, The Play that Goes Wrong is not a musical its a coarse play/farce.
