Kudos to Annie Baker, 2010 Obie Award Winner


How lovely to see that playwright Annie Baker has won an Obie Award for her play Circle Mirror Transformation.

And that's not all.

Circle Mirror Transformation and Baker's other new play, The Aliens, were named jointly as "Best New American Play" by the Obies.

And that's not all.

Sam Gold, who directed both plays, won a director's Obie for his work on the two plays.

And that's not all.

Dane DeHaan, one of the three stars of The Aliens, won an Obie for his acting in that play.

And that's not all.

The cast of Circle Mirror Transformation (Reed Birney, Tracee Chimo, Peter Friedman, Deirdre O'Connell, and Heidi Schreck) won an Obie for their ensemble performance.

Way to go, Annie and company for these well deserved honors! And Kudos to the Obie judges for their exquisite good sense to recognize the work of a terrific young playwright!
