Ovation noms announced

September 25, 2007|Lynne Heffley

In a replay of last year, Center Theatre Group dominates this year's Ovation Awards nominations, announced Monday, with a total of 18 divided among productions at CTG's Ahmanson Theatre, Mark Taper Forum and Kirk Douglas Theatre, which received 10 nominations for "Sleeping Beauty Wakes," Deaf West Theatre's first original musical.

The peer-judged awards, sponsored by the LA Stage Alliance, recognize the best of L.A. theater at large and small venues.

The Pasadena Playhouse's production of "Can-Can," with 12 nods, received the most nominations for a single show, while Boston Court tied for second with 10 nominations for the musical "Paradise Lost: Shadows and Wings." One odd note: Actor-pianist Hershey Felder is in competition with himself, with five and seven nominations, respectively, for his solo shows at the Geffen Playhouse, "Hershey Felder as Monsieur Chopin" and "Hershey Felder as George Gershwin Alone."

The awards are to be announced Nov. 12 at the Orpheum Theatre in downtown L.A.. A complete list of the nominees is at www.latimes.com/arts.
