Drammy Awards: First Period Plays of the 2014/2015 Drammy Season




Can you believe we are at the end of the First Period of shows in our 2014-2015 Drammy season already? We had a highly informative and fascinating  meeting last Monday night, 22 September,  once again in the comfortable offices of Tonkon Torp (thank you, TT! We are so grateful). I know I seem to say this every year, but only because it is true: Portland theatre gets better, and better, and BETTER! And we Drammarians are honored to play a tiny role in celebrating that fact.

Here, as always, is the list of shows that were discussed and considered by the Drammy Committee,  this time on Monday, 22 September, 2014, marking the end of the First Period of this year’s Drammy Season. Remember that a show must have CLOSED before we can consider it (so those of you who are still running will be considered NEXT time, on November 17, 2014). Do let us know if you think something is missing.
