Norm Lewis, Laura Benanti, and More Among 2019 MAC Awards Nominees - Full List!
The Manhattan Association of Cabarets (MAC) has announced the 2019 MAC Award nominees. The nominees, in a majority of the categories, were determined by votes cast by the active MAC membership. Special committees selected the nominees in the Ensemble Instrumentalist, Piano Bar Instrumentalist, Piano Bar Singing Entertainer (Female; Male), Recording (LaMott Friedman), Major Recording, Song and Comedy/Novelty Song categories.
The Hanson Award, presented by the Board of Directors to a performer who has done excellent work over a sustained period of time and has not yet been recognized with a MAC Award nomination, will be awarded to Teresa Fischer.
As previously announced, Karen Mason receives the Lifetime Achievement Award, Joe Iconis receives the Board of Directors Award, MIDNIGHT AT THE NEVER GET receives Show of the Year, and Ben Cameron and his BROADWAY SESSIONS receives the Ruth Kurtzman Benefit Award.
The winners will be revealed as the envelopes are opened live at the 33rd Annual MAC Awards on Tuesday, March 26 at 7:00 pm at Sony Hall in New York City. Until that moment, only the independent accountants know who the winners are. The winners in certain categories will perform live at the show. All nominees in those categories are rehearsed in advance so they are prepared to perform in the event they are the winner.
The MAC Awards ceremony is produced by Julie Miller and directed by Lennie Watts, with musical direction by Bobby Peaco. The event is open to the public. Tickets are available at www.macnyc.com or at http://www.brownpapertickets.com/.
