“Rocky” BATCC Kudos!

The nominations for the San Francisco Bay Area Theatre Critics Circle Awards (BATCC) were just announced. I was so thrilled to see that the production, cast and artistic staff of The Rocky Horror Show, of which I was a part have received some well deserved nominations! I also applaud my friends and colleagues from other shows who have received notice as well.

Sweet Transvestite

I applaud the noms too for both Quality of Life, at ACT, and Figaro, at Berkeley Rep, which I was very pleased to attend. Although, I’m very surprised JoBeth Williams, also of Quality of Life isn’t on this list!? (Noted below are just my highlights.)
