OBIES PHOTOS by Gustavo Palacios

WELCOME TO OUR GUEST BLOGGER: Gustavo Palacios, playwright and director (and long time friend) was one of the photographers for The Unknown Playwright last night at the Obie Awards. Gustavo, an Argentine by birth, is in town from his home in Madrid, Spain. A dozen of his photos are below.

The Unknown Playwright with Wendell Pierce, star of the HBO series 'TREME. Wendell was cast in the Nederlander Television production of Uke Jackson's (f.k.a. Steve DiLauro) play "Avenue Z Afternoon" when he adapted it for a GM Mark of Excellence presentation back in 1992. It was one of Wendell's first jobs in TV.

It was a super evening with free Stella Artois beer, free TEANY, and free fruit and nut bars from KIND. Mainly, as always, it was the people who dedicate their lives to creating art for the theater who made the evening great.

Webster Hall deserves a big thanks for hosting and sponsoring the Village Voice Obies,
