Underground Railroad Game wins Obie!

Last night I had the distinct honor to watch Jenn and Scott be awarded an Obie for “Best New American Theatre Work” for Underground Railroad Game. After years of hard work, it was incredible to watch them be so honored. Katie, Mason, and I are so proud of them.

We’ll post a video of their acceptance speech on our Facebook page so you can hear for yourself the number of people whose dedication made the show happen (you’ll notice a particular amount of love from the crowd for FringeArts). They make a special shoutout to everyone who has financially funded the production while it was developing and we would like to echo that gratitude: art like Underground Railroad Game doesn’t happen without the financial support of our network and we are humbled by your generosity. Thank you, thank you, thank you.

PS. If (somehow!) you didn’t catch the show in either its Philly or NYC runs, you’ll have many more chances on the horizon. It’s going to Hamburg, Germany next week, then Australia, Williams College, University of Michigan, and will spend a month in DC next year at Woolly Mammoth Theater.

PPS. You can check out the full list of awardees HERE and catch the video of the ceremony on the Obie Awards Facebook page.
