At last night’s 59th annual Obie Awards, Branden Jacobs-Jenkins received the Best Play Award for two of his plays: APPROPRIATE and OCTOROON.
But not only did the two plays get Obies – actors in each production also brought home the hardware. And one of the directors did as well.
The sensational OCTOROON, which sold out its current run at Soho Rep before the first preview night (and then extended twice – but it’s still all sold out), also netted a Performance Obie for Chris Myers.
And in APPROPRIATE, Johanna Day got one for Performance, and Liesl Tommy got one for Direction.
