As I was cruising the internet for my daily culture fix, I stumbled upon the list of winners for last night’s IRNE Awards. A familiar name stood out:
Best Supporting Actor (Musical) – SMALL COMPANY
David Kravitz: The Mikado (Lyric Stage Company of Boston)
A note from the IRNE Facebook page explains that “[t]he Independent Reviewers of New England (IRNE) Awards were founded by Beverly Creasey of the Journal Newspapers and Larry Stark of the TheaterMirror in 1997. The IRNE Awards recognize the extraordinary wealth of talent in the Boston theatre community.”
Please share widely!

That’s very cool
Just kidding – congrats, David!
I’ve had occasion to see David in staged operas a dozen or more times: with Opera Aperta and its successor Boston Midsummer Opera; Boston Lyric Opera; the now unfortunately defunct Opera Boston; and as soloist performing the Mahler song cycle “Songs of a Wayfarer” (yes composers of operas and symphonies also composed songs). At the end of those Metropolitan Opera telecasts in theaters, the host (usually Renee Fleming) urges people to support their local opera companies. If anybody thinks these companies operate at a substantively lower level than The Met, David is there to prove them otherwise.
thanks everyone! 🙂
can you post a bit of video?
not without breaking a host of union rules! 🙂
