On Monday night, January 11th the LA Stage Alliance hosted the 2010 LA Ovation Awards at the Redondo Beach Performing Arts center. Divorce! The Musical was nominated in five categories. While my competition against against Dolly Pardon (“9 to 5″), Frank Zappa, and Charles Strause (“Minsky’s”) was fierce, a miracle occurred and I won the award for best book, music and lyrics of an original musical. Thank you LA Theater community and Ovation voters!

We trust that this award, which certainly belongs to the entire creative team, will help secure investment for our upcoming Chicago and New York productions.
