Nominees-Best Original Work


All of the shows nominated in this category are nominated for creating brand new shows from the ground up. Making a world premiere is no easy task and new work should be celebrated. They're a little bit harder to sell, they're a little bit harder to rehearse but it's very rewarding to know you're the first one to do this production. Congrats to all artists involved with these productions; we know they must have been a challenge!

    I didn't see all of these but the ones I saw were great. So true. New work should be celebrated. People are too quick to slam the new.
