The Old Globe Theatre, the La Jolla Playhouse, the Gaslamp Quarter Theatre Company and the San Diego Civic Light Opera (Starlight) picked up seven of the 36 productions awards given by the 11th annual Dramalogue Awards for Outstanding Achievement in the Theatre presented Monday at the Variety Arts Center in Los Angeles for the 1987 calendar year.
Only Los Angeles troupes, which received 17 production awards, earned more. The San Francisco/Bay Area picked up six, Orange County four and Solvang two. Ashland, Ore., productions, also under consideration, were not noted this year.
The Old Globe was commended for "Antony and Cleopatra," "Holiday," "Intimate Exchanges" and "There's One in Every Marriage;" the La Jolla Playhouse for "A Walk in the Woods;" the Gaslamp for "The Circle," and Starlight for "Shenandoah."
The awards for each area were the choice of the individual Dramalogue critics covering their areas.
The Dramalogue critic for San Diego, D. Larry Steckling, cited over 80 performers, directors, writers, choreographers and lighting, set, costume and sound designers in San Diego for additional awards.
Still showing among those commended is the just-extended "Six Women with Brain Death" at the San Diego Repertory Theatre, where outstanding ensemble work was noted for actresses Seraiah Carol, Geraldine Joyce, Sharon Murray, Kate Kiley, Linda Libby and Melissa Gilb; "The Boiler Room" at the Old Globe's Cassius Carter Centre Stage, which was noted for writing (Reuben Gonzalez), acting (Tim Donoghue and Karmin Murcello), lighting (Kent Dorsey) and sound (Lucy Peckham); and "Holiday" at the Old Globe's main stage, commended for acting (Lise Hilboldt), set (William Bloodgood), costumes (Robert Wojewodski) and sound (Corey L. Fayman).
