On Monday, around 3pm, we will find out if the Pulitzer committee has given an award for Drama. Speculation has started as to possible plays/playwrights to recognize but as last year's award went to Quiara Alegria Hudes' Water By the Spoonful - which wasn't on anyone's radar - we assume anything is possible. (Admittedly, New Yorkers seem miffed when a non-NY show wins this award.) The winning play (or musical) has to have had a press opening during the calendar year 2012.
Here are are few titles we'd like to see considered:
- 3C by David Adjmi
- The Big Meal by Dan LeFranc
- The Great God Pan by Amy Herzog
- Mission Drift written by the TEAM in collaboration with Heather Christian and Sarah Gancher (oooooh -would they ever give a Pulitzer to a devised work?)
- Rapture, Blister, Burn by Gina Gionfriddo
- Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike by Christopher Durang
- We’re Gonna Die by Young Jean Lee
- What Rhymes With America by Melissa James Gibson
We shall know on Monday afternoon...
