BoHo Grabs Eleven Jeff Noms!!

The Glenwood Ave Arts District is on fire this week with the announcement of the 2009 Non-Equity Jeff Award nominations! The top three nominated companies in the entire city came from our little stretch of neighborhood with Lifeline Theatre grabbing 13 nominations, Theo Ubique with 11, and BoHo Theatre grabbing 11 as well. BoHo's regional premiere of the energetic musical The Glorious Ones tied with Theo Ubique's Chess with eight nominations. The one-man powerhouse of a show, I Am My Own Wife, scooped up the other three nods. BoHo Theatre congratulates our fellow Rogers Park theater artists, as well as all the nominated companies, for their fantastic work in the past year.
