Kate Mulgrew, Voyager's Captain Janeway, who has earned raves portraying legendary actress Katharine Hepburn in the one-woman show Tea At Five, has been nominated for a Lucille Lortel Award for her performance.
Created to recognise achievement in Off-Broadway productions, the Lucille Lortel Awards are presented by the League of Off-Broadway Theatres & Producers. Mulgrew's fellow nominees include acclaimed film actress Tovah Feldshuh, who is also playing an iconic figure - former Israeli Prime Minister Golda Meir - in Golda’s Balcony, as well as two actresses from a revival of Fifth of July, Pamela Payton-Wright and Parker Posey. Fifth of July received five total nominations, making it one of the most honoured shows of the season.
The voting committee for the awards include actors, directors, journalists, teachers, producers, and members of the Lucille Lortel Foundation. The awards will be presented on May 5 at 7 p.m. Eastern Time at the Lucille Lortel Theatre in Manhattan.
Meanwhile, Tea At Five continues its run at the Promenade Theatre. Mulgrew is also scheduled to appear at the Barnes and Noble store near Lincoln Center this Monday, April 7th, from 7-8 p.m. Eastern Time to speak about Tea At Five. The event is open to the public and there may be an opportunity for questions.
Tea At Five, written by Matthew Lombardo, has an official site here. More information on the Lucille Lortel nominees may be found in this Playbill article. Information about Mulgrew's appearances may be found at Totally Kate!
