LA Stage Alliance Ovation Award WINNER: Best Direction of a Musical
LA Stage Alliance Ovation Award WINNER: Best Musical/Large Venue
LA Drama Critics Circle Nomination: Best Production
"The last time I saw a production of the show in Los Angeles, I came out humming the direction of Richard Israel, who approached the task with skill, creativity and confidence, putting together a surprisingly effective production of the musical in a small space. Now, some nine years later, Israel is back, and the results are even better … near perfection."
