‘Cider’ rules Ovation noms

Ahmanson production nets 13; 'Chicago' grabs 10

The Ahmanson Theatre’s presentation of “The Cider House Rules” leads the way in the Theatre LA Ovation Awards nominations with 13, followed by the Ahmanson’s “Chicago” with 10. Both were produced by the Center Theatre Group.

Nominations were announced Monday at the Hotel Inter-Continental. The awards are given in 26 categories and include presenting theaters as well as producing companies. All productions must be staged at houses belonging to Theatre LA, a nonprofit org of more than 150 theaters and producers.

Competing for world premiere play or musical are: the Actors’ Gang’s “Bat Boy”; the Matrix Theatre Co.’s “Yield of the Long Bond”; Marathon Entertainment’s “My Big Fat Greek Wedding”; “Great Men of Science Nos. 21 & 22,” which has seven noms, from the Circle X Theatre Co.; and the Celebration Theatre’s “Valsetz.”

“Chicago” will compete for the best musical (large theater) against East West Players’ “Pacific Overtures”; La Mirada Theatre’s “Peter Pan”; Pasadena Playhouse’s “Blame It on the Movies”; and “Bring in Da Noise, Bring in Da Funk” at the Ahmanson.

Best play (large theater) pits two productions each from the Geffen (“Old Wicked Song,” “Harriet’s Return”) and the Center Theatre Group/Mark Taper Forum (“Neat,” “Cider House Rules”) against the Pasadena Playhouse’s “The Old Settler.”
