This year, with most of the stages across the country dark since mid-March, Broadway World’s using their Regional Awards to celebrate the Best of the Decade, rather than their normal annual honors.

What a list, right? I’m deeply proud of everyone on here. 

Now, I’m sure you can probably guess what’s next: the part where I ask for your help. If you could please take five minutes and vote for us, I’d sincerely appreciate it.

Unfortunately, you can only pick one nominee for each category, so I’m sure we’re going to split a few ballots. I’ll be posting photos and video from each show on my (newly updated & redesigned) blog over the coming weeks if you’d like to get a feel of each show. I believe the deadline to submit a ballot is  

You do need to provide an e-mail address to cast a ballot, and they will put you on their mailing list when you do, so if you’re not local to Los Angeles or not interested in receiving their newsletter, feel free to use a spam/burner account.
