James Sugg Wins An OBIE!

Posted May 19th, 2009

Longtime Pig Iron member and Live Arts performer and composer James Sugg won a performance OBIE last night! Chekov Lizardbrain went off-Broadway at New York’s Ohio Theater last fall, and got a fantastic review from Christopher Isherwood in The New York Times.

Everybody is still psyched: Howard Shapiro reports on the win in the Philadelphia Inquirer, and at The Clog, Carolyn Huckabay writes that City Paper staff “can barely contain our theater-geek glee” – we can’t either!

Congrats to James from everybody here at Live Arts & Philly Fringe! He’s pictured to the left as a resident of mythic Yuba City, which will rise from the desert this fall as a dance-theater-vaudeville piece at the Live Arts Festival in September.
