The 41st Annual Jeff Equity Awards were presented last night, and among the winners (see the list here), Court Theatre’s Caroline, or Change took home the following major awards:
- Actress in a Principal Role, Musical (E. Faye Butler)
- Production of a Musical — Large
- Director of a Musical (Charles Newell)
- Music Direction (Doug Peck)
I saw Caroline in the Fall last year, and it blew. my. mind. There were rumors last year that Court was looking into an open-ended run someplace in the city, but those never materialized. Maybe now? But only with E. Faye in the lead, please, as it was one of the most — if not THE most — powerful stage performances I’ve ever seen. So: should we start a campaign?
