YOU probably thought the 2010-11 Commy Awards excitement was over. But because of the theatergossip.com staff's pressing (and disorganized) travel plans in late May, several winners were inadvertently omitted from our original awards post. With sincere apologies and belated congratulations to these talented artists, here is an addendum:
EDUCATING BILLIE Leonard and Arianda as teacher and student in the revival of Garson Kanin's "Born Yesterday."
BEST SUPPORTING PERFORMANCE BY AN ACTRESS IN
FABULOUS "MAD MEN"-ERA CLOTHES Judith Light in "Lombardi."
BEST REVIVAL OF A PLAY NO ONE REALIZED WAS GREAT THE FIRST TIME AROUND "The Normal Heart"
BEST ONE-MAN SHOW THAT NONE OF THE BROADWAY CROWD SAW "Mike Birbiglia's My Girlfriend's Boyfriend"
BEST UNSUNG COUPLE IN A REVIVAL OF A PLAY Nina Arianda and Robert Sean Leonard in the Judy Holliday and William Holden roles in "Born Yesterday"
BEST SET DESIGN EVOKING EXTREME WEATHER AT A TIME WHEN NEW YORKERS WERE SICK OF EXTREME WEATHER Tom Pye for "John Gabriel Borkman"
