Faculty Member Nominated for Jeff Award
September 4, 2012
Professor John Iacovelli has been nominated for a 2012 Jeff Award for his scenic design for “Immediate Family” directed by Phylicia Rashad at the Goodman Theatre in Chicago.
This is the highest award celebrating excellence in Chicago Theatre.
Each year at the request of the theaters, the members of Jeff Committee see the Jeff-eligible, locally produced shows. They nominate and eventually select recipients “for outstanding achievement” in the following categories: Production, Director, Actor and Actress in a Principal Role, Actor and Actress in a Supporting Role, in the two categories of Plays and Musicals. Awards are also given for Production, Direction, Actor and Actress in a Revue, and Cameo Performance, as well as Ensemble, Choreography, Scenic Design, Lighting Design, Costume Design, Original Music, Musical Direction, Sound Design, New Work and Adaptation. On occasion, special awards are given for achievements, accomplishments, or services in other areas of the theatre. Award recipients are determined by secret ballot.
