HYDE PARK — Court Theatre brought home three Equity Jeff Awards on Oct. 15, after every 2011-12 production earned a nomination for an award.
Larry Yando won the Jeff Award for actor in a principal role in a play for his performance as Roy Cohn in “Angels in America.” Timothy Edward Kane won an award for his role in “An Iliad.”
“Invisible Man,” produced at Court with Christopher McElroen Productions, received a Jeff Award for best new adaptation of a play.
Charles Newell, Court Theatre’s artistic director, said he was thrilled about the win for “Invisible Man.”
“A product of close collaboration between Court Theatre’s artists and university scholars like Ken Warren, 'Invisible Man'’s continuing success in Chicago and beyond is a testament to what Court and the University of Chicago can achieve in partnership,” Newell said in a statement.
The University of Chicago’s campus theater received a total of 15 nominations this year for the Joseph Jefferson Awards, which honor theatrical productions in Chicago and are often considered the Tony Awards of Chicago.
Court’s production of “James Joyce’s ‘The Dead’” opens on Nov. 8.
