Barrymore nominations coming soon!

It's an exciting time in the Philadelphia theatre community: on Monday at 4 p.m. the Barrymore award nominations will be announced. (No, not that Barrymore.) NYC has the Tonys, DC has the Helen Hayes awards, and we here in Philly have the Barrymores.

I am particularly excited because this will be my first event in my official capacity representing Theatre Exile. I'll get to schmooze and meet people and get phone numbers and so forth, and when people ask me what I do, I will no longer say, "Well, I've been in grad school forever, and right now I'm selling shoes." Yay!!!!!

If you're curious who gets nominated, check here. For more info about my company and the fabulous season line-up we've got going, check here. And for what I'm thinking of wearing for the awards ceremony ... maybe this?,


  1. If you check out the Barrymore Wiki page, I believe the parents of John Ethyl And Lionel Barrymore were born in Philadelphia or at least live here.

  2. Yes, the Barrymores are named after the famous Barrymore family. But not Drew. :)

  3. I give a thumbs up to the outfit.
