Gay Chicago Magazine‘s After Dark Awards were just announced, and there were a few winners I’m very excited about and want to point out here:

The original run of the show I’m opening this weekend, Lifeline Theatre‘s The Mark of Zorro, won two awards — one for fight director Geoff Coates (who also directed and choreographed Bloody Bess) and one for Outstanding Production. So, we’ve got a lot to live up to.

Trap Door Theatre‘s Emma, for which I provided the fight direction, won for Outstanding Ensemble. And my friend Blake’s company, The Building Stage, won several technical awards for Noir.

Congrats to everybody!
