The Lucille Lortel, Drama League, Outer Critics Circle, AUDELCO, and Obie Awards have come calling! The world premiere of Dave Harris’ play “Tambo & Bones”, in which I had the immense good fortune to appear earlier this year at Playwrights Horizons, has been recognized by all of the major Off-Broadway awards entities. The production was recently nominated for three Lortel awards, two Drama Leagues awards, three AUDELCO awards, an Outer Critics Circle Award, and an Obie!
At the Lortels, “Tambo & Bones” was nominated for Outstanding Lead Performer in a Play (W. Tré Davis), Outstanding Costume Design (Dominique Fawn Hill), and Outstanding Sound Design (Mikhail Fiksel).
At the Drama League Awards, “Tambo & Bones” was nominated for Outstanding Direction of a Play (Taylor Reynolds) and the Distinguished Performance Award (Tyler Fauntleroy).
At the Outer Critics Circle Awards, Dave Harris was nominated for the John Gassner Award for New American Playwrights for “Tambo & Bones”.
At the AUDELCO Awards for Excellence in Black Theatre, “Tambo & Bones” was nominated for Best Sound Design (Mikhail Fiksel), Best Costume Design (Dominique Fawn Hill), and Outstanding Ensemble (W. Tré Davis, Tyler Fountleroy, Brendan Dalton, and yours truly).
And at the Obie Awards, our brilliant director Taylor Reynolds won for her direction of “Man Cave” and our very own “Tambo & Bones”.
A hearty congratulations to all of these exquisite artists!
