Every week we will be sharing John and Stephen Hauge’s TheaterThoughts from their popular site TrueTheatergoer.
“From John Hauge: “My brother Stephen and I created the TrueTheatergoer.com website in October 2011 to promote theater in Washington, DC and on Broadway by providing an enriching collection of information on current shows and composite audience reviews and ratings of these shows. Our hope is to further develop a community excited about theater and willing to write short comments of shows so others can benefit from their experiences.”

This Week’s TheaterThoughts:
The nominees for the 2014 Helen Hayes Awards for calendar 2013 productions will be announced on January 27. TrueTheatergoer saw over 120 D.C.-area plays and musicals in 2013 and was particularly impressed by the following performances and resident plays and musicals produced (not presented) locally. We limited the number of nominees to a maximum of 10 per category, which was quite difficult for the Outstanding Lead/Supporting performances in plays and the Outstanding Play category.
Please share your reaction to these nominees (presented alphabetically), or provide your own.
