Dr. Thompson and the actors of Underground [Jeffery Da'Shade Johnson and Marc Pouhé]

A number of stage productions, concerts, and art exhibitions were mounted in Austin between May 1, 2016, and April 30, 2017, and now, for the 25th time, members of the Austin Critics Table have identified outstanding works among these local productions in the areas dance, classical music, visual art, and theatre. Our very own Dr. Lisa B. Thompson’s critically acclaimed play, Underground, is among those works identified, having been nominated for the 2016-17 David Mark Cohen New Play Award! 

The Austin Critics Table will present the awards in an informal ceremony on Monday, June 5, 7pm, at Cap City Comedy Club, 8120 Research Blvd. #100. Congratulations to Dr. Thompson on her incredible year thus far! We are excited that her work is receiving such positive recognition.
