Congratulations to Nicolle Van Dyke!!!!!!!!
She's been nominated for Best Actress in a Supporting Role/Play for her role as Beatrice in A View from the Bridge!!!!!!!! We're so excited for her, I can't begin to tell you. I'll write more about this tomorrow because I need to go to bed, but I wanted to make a quick announcement. And I just called Nicolle even thought it's super late. I believe she's jumping on her bed right now.
(Edited on 5/2/08 at 10:00am) I've known Nicolle since college and she was in The Boys Next Door with me, which was one of my all-time favorite theatrical experiences. Part of the reason the show was so wonderful was because I got to act closely with Nicolle. She's one of the most giving, committed, funny, honest and professional actors I know and I speak for anybody who has ever acted with her in saying she totally and completely deserves this nod. And she's an incredibly nice, beautiful person. So ... theatre companies ... get to know this girl, will yins? She's the bee's knees.
And! Rebekah Ward-Hays was nominated in the same category for her role in Backstage Theatre's Waiting for Lefty!!!!! Ahhhh! I saw Rebekah perform in this and was really proud of her and the show in general. Congratulations, Rebekah and Backstage!!!!
It's all too exciting.
