Originally posted to EVIL DEAD THE MUSICAL site 9/24/13 – You’ll be seeing a lot of these archival posts from my days with EVIL DEAD to make sure they don’t get lost in case the original site goes down. Plus it is a bit of fun to stroll down memory lane…
EVIL DEAD THE MUSICAL has been nominated in 5 categories for the 2013 BroadwayWorld Awards! We are happy to have been nominated at all, but to see us in 5 separate categories is very exciting!
While the nominating process is controlled by BroadwayWorld editors, YOU guys get to determine the winners! That’s right – this is a public voting award, which means those who can mobilize the most fans take the awards home.
We were nominated for one award last year – Best Resident Show – and lost by a hair. This year we are nominated in 5 categories and are asking our fans to help us sweep all 5.
BEST BOOK MUSICAL
BEST RESIDENT SHOW
BEST PERFORMANCE BY A LEAD ACTOR – Ben Stobber as Ash
BEST PERFORMANCE BY A LEAD ACTRESS – Lorie Palkow as Cheryl, Courtney Leone as Shelly/Annie, Lynnae Meyers as Linda
BEST PERFORMANCE BY A FEATURED ACTOR – Greg Korin as Jake, Scott Sherman as Scott, Kolton Rostron as Deadite, Shawnn Morris-Slaughter as Deadite
Other shows have massive budgets, the backing of a casino, the marketing to dominate in such a contest. But we have a secret weapon that trumps all of that – our fans! That’s right. This isn’t about pandering to critics, being in the biggest venue, or spending millions on advertising. This award’s outcome is determined by the voters – by you.
Vote for EVIL DEAD!
You get to have your say, and turn conventional thinking on its head!
Voting closes on December 31, 2013. Live statistics are provided during the voting process, so you can see how your favorites are faring against the competition.
