Two Jeff nominations more

The Joseph Jefferson Awards Committee said Wednesday that it had omitted a category of nominees in its Tuesday announcement of the 2012 Joseph Jefferson Awards.

That didn't necessarily ring any alarm bells among recipients who just assumed that no nominations had been given.

Nonetheless, the Jeff Committee said, there are in fact two nominations for best director of a revue: Ryan Bernier, the director of “We’re All in This Room Together” at the Second City e.t.c.
and Brenda Didier, the director of “Stephen Sondheim’s Putting it Together” at Porchlight Music
Theatre.
