Honors for Robert Schenkkan, Julie Briskman

From Seattle Times theater critic Misha Berson:

Robert Schenkkan

Robert Schenkkan

Seattle playwright Robert Schenkkan’s “All the Way” has won a Drama Desk Award (voted on by a panel of East Coast theater critics, editors and educators) for outstanding new play of the 2013-14 theater season. The Broadway production’s star, Bryan Cranston, won the top male acting prize for his performance as Lyndon Baines Johnson. “All the Way,” under Bill Rauch’s direction, will come to the Seattle Repertory Theatre next season, along with its sequel, “The Great Society.”

Briskman Wins Fellowship

Seattle actor-producer Julie Briskman has won a Lunt-Fontanne  Fellowship. The prestigious award goes annually to eight to 10 regional theater actors, who take part in an eight-day retreat and study program at 10 Chimneys (the former home of the late Broadway stars Alfred Lunt and Lynn Fontanne) in Wisconsin.  This year the program will be led by noted actor David Hyde Pierce. Briskman, who performs frequently at ACT, Seattle Children’s Theatre and other local theaters, is the co-founder of The Seagull Project. She was nominated for the award by Intiman Theatre.
