And the winners are & Seattle Theater Writers announce the 2014 Winners of The Fourth Annual Gypsy Rose Lee Awards

Joshua Carter, currently working the national musical tour of Once, wins Performance in a Musical as a Lead Actor (Male) for his work in Little Shop of Horrors, along with his co-lead, Jessica Skerritt. Bill Berry wins as well as director of the co-production of ACT Theatre and The 5th Avenue Theatre (housed at ACT). ACT Theatre continues a year of great performances with a win for Excellence in Production of a Play for their presentation of Ayad Akhtar's play, The Invisible Hand. This puts them atop the leader board for companies with five wins (three shared with The 5th Avenue Theatre)!

Seattle Theater Writers critics' circle is pleased to present the rest of the winners' slate for the 2014 Gypsy Rose Lee Awards, theater awards devoted to recognizing excellence across the economic spectrum of professional Seattle theaters. A previously announced Special Award of Recognition for Excellence in Playwriting was given to Robert Schenkkan for his two LBJ histories.

'The winners represent coming to a consensus, which can be quite a challenge,' Miryam Gordon, head writer-wrangler says. 'It's not easy to bring people with very different opinions to agreement. We all take these selections quite seriously. Invariably, we each champion different people or productions and sometimes there is vigorous debate before we settle on our slate.'

We are excited to officially announce the winners of this year's Gypsys and hope you will enjoy the below list. Congratulations to all the great theater practitioners on this list and to the whole theater community city-wide!
