Seattle critics group announces Gypsy Awards

From Misha Berson, Seattle Times theater critic:

A group of seven Seattle drama critics joined forces to determine the second annual Gypsy Rose Lee Awards for local theater achievements.

Gypsy prizes for best dramatic productions of 2012 went to ACT Theatre’s production of “The Pitmen Painters” and Azeotrope’s “Jesus Hopped the A Train.” The Village Theatre’s “The Producers” and Balagan Theatre’s “Spring Awakening” won for best musical productions. Among other awards: best lead actor awards in plays went to David Hogan (Book-It Rep’s “The Art of Racing in the Rain”) and Richard N. Sloniker (“Jesus Hopped the A Train”). Jennifer Lee Taylor (Seattle Shakespeare Company’s “Pygmalion”) and Mary Ewald (“Happy Days” at New City Theater) were honored in the best lead actress category. Along with additional awards for supporting performances, direction, design and other achievements, a Gypsy for playwriting went to writer and actress Kathy Hsieh in honor of her 20-part stage serial, “Sex in Seattle.”

The Gypsys were decided by a panel composed of Jose Amador (Seattle Star), Stefan D-W (The Sunbreak), Miryam Gordon (Seattle Gay News and CultureMob), Jerry Kraft (Seattle Actor), Greg Scheiderer (West Seattle Weisenheimer), Michael Strangeways (Gay Seattle Scene), and Scott Taylor (Drama in the Hood).
