Guess Which Geffen Productions Were Nominated for 2015 Ovation Awards? (Hint: You Loved This One!)

We at the Geffen like to think we mount some of the best productions in L.A.’s diverse theater community — but we were taught not to toot our own horn (often). That’s why we get excited when other people notice and nominate us for honors such as the Ovation Awards.

Just what are the Ovation Awards? Here’s a quick primer: The Ovation Awards are the only peer-judged theater awards in L.A. given for theatrical performance, production and design. How many people vote, and on how many productions? Per LA Stage Alliance, there were 203 total nominations for 73 productions presented by 45 companies this voting season. Then, the 250 Ovation voters — vetted individuals who work professionally in the theater industry — vote on the productions. (If you need a refresher on what “Ovation Recommended” means, check out our breakdown.)

So which productions from the Geffen’s 2014–2015 season were nominated?

Congratulations to Anthony Fanning for his nomination for Scenic Design in Switzerland, and a big ol’ congrats to the entire cast and creative team behind Bad Jews for their Best Production of a Play nomination!

The winners will be announced at the Ovations Awards ceremony, held at the Ahmanson Theatre on Monday, November 9. If you’d like to attend, please click here.
