A Night Out: The Helen Hayes Awards
And the winners are …
Eric Schaeffer, artistic director of Signature and the guy who cast Kelly as well as a cadre of other kids in plays this season, had plenty to smile about. His production of Les Misérables captured six awards, including outstanding resident musical and, for Schaeffer, outstanding director of a resident musical. Both outstanding lead actor in a resident musical David Margulies and one of the two winners of outstanding lead actress in a resident musical, Chita Rivera, were also honored for Signature productions (The Happy Time and The Visit, respectively).
It was also a winning night for Washington fashion. The creative community can always be counted on to glam up the occasion. Check out our photos of the event after the jump.
