Ed Harris, Chris Pine among Los Angeles Drama Critics Circle's nominees for 2010
The Los Angeles Drama Critics Circle announced its nominations for the 2010 season on Tuesday. The Antaeus Company's production of Shakespeare's "King Lear" topped the list with five nominations, while Rogue Machine's "Four Places," Actors Co-op's "Wit," The Theatre @ Boston Court's "The Twentieth-Century Way" and The Fountain Theatre's "Opus" and "The Ballad of Emmett Till" each scored four.
As usual, Hollywood celebrities factored in to the choices: Ed Harris for Neil LaBute's "Wrecks" at the Geffen Playhouse, Chris Pine in Martin McDonagh's "The Lieutenant of Inishmore" at the Mark Taper Forum and "24" star Gregory Itzin for the Antaeus Company's "King Lear" at Deaf West Theatre in North Hollywood. Tony Award winner Lin-Manuel Miranda picked up a nomination -- and a win -- for his score to "In The Heights" at the Pantages Theatre. (He was the only nominee in the category.)
The awards ceremony is scheduled to take place March 14 at the Colony Theatre in Burbank, where it was held last year. Founded in 1969, the organization's voting members include theater reviewers from around Southern California, including two regular contributors to the Los Angeles Times -- F. Kathleen Foley and David C. Nichols.
