We’re knee deep in post-production work here in Brooklyn, but we wanted to take some time to brag about some of our Glob team! This spring has been full of good news for our associated artists!
First off, we want to congratulate our composer / producer angel / production assistant extraordinaire / best boy forever Matthew Ricketts, who was recently named a 2019 Guggenheim Fellow. “Appointed on the basis of prior achievement and exceptional promise, the successful candidates were chosen from a group of almost 3,000 applicants in the Foundation’s ninety-fifth competition.” This is a huge honor and a major accomplishment for any working artist and we’re so proud of Matthew, and as always, overjoyed to have him on our team.
We also want to give a shout out to a few pals who were recently nominated for 2019 Drama Desk Awards here in NYC. Our bud Edmund Donovan, who has a fantastic GLOB cameo as Doug, was nominated for Outstanding Actor in a Play for Lewiston/Clarkston, while Usual Girls by Ming Peiffer, which featured our very own Nicole Rodenburg, was nominated for Outstanding Play. The Drama Desk Awards are one of few major theatre honors for which productions on Broadway, Off-Broadway, and Off-Off Broadway compete against each other in the same categories, so these nominations are a big, big deal and we’re so proud!
Stay tuned for more exciting news from the world of GLOB LESSONS!
