Eric and Andy Live From The Jeff Awards
Eric Roach and Anderson Lawfer, interviewers for TheatreInChicago and curators and founders of the insider Chicago Theatre blog Reviews You Can Iews!, will be holding a "Red Carpet" style event from the Park West Theater at the 39th annual Joseph Jefferson Awards on June 4th, 2012 that will be streamed live and can be seen right here at TheatreInChicago.com.
The production will be handled by Brad Little and Ben Fuchsen from Oracle Theatre Productions who have live streamed other theatrical events in Chicago including Woyzeck from the Oracle Theatre and Tonight, It's Live with Tom Bambara. Mike Ooi will be directing the night's festivities with the help of guest liaison David Seeber.
With their irrelevant blend of comedy and knowledge of the theatre world in Chicago, Eric & Andy, two working actors, provocateurs and sometimes critics, will be interviewing their peers and colleagues in a 1 hour interview special for the second year in a row!
Once again the Jeff Awards allowed us full coverage, as people at home or in motels will be able to tune in for free and watch the red carpet rituals in a meet-and-greet hour of the two annual Jeff Award awards ceremonies for the Theatre Arts.
Coverage will begin at 6:00pm from inside the fabulous Park West Theater and last for a non-stop action filled 60 minutes that will include interviews of presenters, nominees, theatre personalities and heavyweights.
You will have to tune in to see what happens, but be sure it will be exciting and add a level of distinction to these already revered awards!
