Bruce Norris’ Clybourne Park, a stunning, raw look at race which played at the American Conservatory Theater last season, received four nominations including best new play. In his review, Clinton Stark called it “must-see theater.”

The musical Once led the 2012 class with a total of 11 noms. The controversial Spider-Man Turn Off the Dark received two nominations for best set design, and best costumes.

The Shakespeare Theatre Company (Washington, D.C.) won for best regional theatre in a non-competitive category where our own SF Playhouse was nominated.
