Honors The Best And Brightest Of Off-Off Broadway
Lisa Ramirez’ play To The Bone was one of the best — probably THE best — new play I saw all season but at the time I felt it was not receiving the attention it deserved. Now she has received a 2015 NYCT Helen Merrill Playwright Award and I’m thrilled for her to have this recognition and tremendously deserved award. Click on the live link for more on the award, and see there also other playwrights who have been honored. Click here for Let’s Talk Off-Broadway’s review of Lisa Ramirez’ To The Bone.
Now and then things come out right!
Congratulations to Lisa Ramirez!
