Thanks for all the messages of support and best wishes for our Actors’ Equity Approved production of Caldwell’s Bomb in the 2016 Venus/Adonis Festival. According to the organizers, this is now the second largest playwright-centered festival in the country. It certainly drew a large number of strong, well-acted plays this year, so we’re proud that we were invited back to New York City as one of the finalists. No production garnered more than the four nominations we received: Best Play, Best Director (Gerald vanHeerden) and two best actor nominations (Michael Gnat* and Matthew Tyler Horn*).

This was a wonderful experience. We enjoyed every minute of the festival and made a host of new friends and contacts in New York City. While we didn’t come away with the top prize, we had a very good run!

Thanks again for all the good vibes of support!
