The winners of the 2017 Gypsy Rose Lee Awards

by Miryam Gordon - SGN A&E Writer

The Seattle Theater Writers, a Seattle theater critics' circle, have announced the winners of the 2017 Gypsy Rose Lee Awards.

This year, several productions were clear critical favorites, with multiple nominations and multiple wins. Among musicals, 5th Avenue Theatre's Ragtime was a standout, and in the Large Theaters division, Lydia, produced by Strawberry Theatre Workshop, also produced significant winners. In the Small Theaters division, the two favorites were Teh Internet Is Serious Business by Washington Ensemble Theatre, with six wins, and Sound Theatre Company's Hoodoo Love (taking top acting awards in three categories).

This year we also have a Special Recognition for Donald Byrd and Spectrum Dance Theater for their Excellent Production of (IM)Pulse!

A complete list of nominees was published in last week's Seattle Gay News on 1/19/18 and are also in the SGN's online edition at http://www.sgn.org/sgnnews46_03/page23.cfm

About Seattle Theater Writers:
Founded in 2010 by Miryam Gordon and comprised of local writers and reviewers, Seattle Theater Writers is a group of critic/reviewers dedicated to raising public awareness of theater practitioners and the work produced by professional theater organizations in the Seattle area. Seattle Theater Writers' hope is that these awards might encourage theater attendance and enjoyment of our rich cultural offerings. Born from this mission are the annual Gypsy Rose Lee Awards, recognizing excellence in Seattle theater across 33 categories.

The participants in this year's award process were Candace Brown (goodlifenw.blogspot.com), Miryam Gordon (Seattle Gay News and miryamstheatermusings.blogspot.com), Rosemary Jones (www.seattletheateranddance.com/), Dusty Somers (guest writer for Seattle Times), and Michael Strangeways (www.seattlegayscene.com/).

A growing (years' long) reality regarding reviewing and reviewers has reduced the number of reliable and credible critics writing today. Fewer and fewer reviewers are paid anything for their work, and fewer reviews are being published in every kind of publication. It is harder than ever to establish oneself as a critic since companies are reducing the numbers of seats they can or will provide for that kind of effort.

To support the reviewers' nominations, STW has established an Auxiliary of theater-going members, some of whom are also theater practitioners and all of whom are ardent fans of theater. All members go to multiple dozens of productions per year, many over 100. The Auxiliary supports our Round Two in the selection process where points are given to the dozens of nominees and individuals select their top five in each category. The Auxiliary points are used to support STW members' choices as we pick our nominees and winners.

For more information, go to www.facebook.com/SeattleTheaterWriters. The Notes section of the Facebook page shows the evolution of the awards.
