WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
The Boston Theater Critics Association has announced that the 35th annual Elliot Norton Awards will feature the theme "alternative acts," celebrating the Boston area's theater community, future artists, and the importance of the arts in our country. Two-time Tony Award-winning actress Cherry Jones will be the guest of honor. The ceremony will feature musical performances by nominees and the Boston Arts Academy, the awarding of the Elliot Norton Prize for Sustained Excellence, surprise appearances, and a post-ceremony party. A portion of the evening's proceeds will be donated to the Boston Arts Academy to support the region's next generation of artists.
