A preliminary list of performers for Pride Films and Plays’ annual NOMINEE NIGHT concert has been announced by Robert Ollis, a PFP Artistic Associate serving as music director for the event. NOMINEE NIGHT is typically performed in mid-May at Sidetrack’s Musical Monday to showcase musical theater performers and productions nominated in the Non-Equity Jeff Awards. Since a live gathering isn’t possible this year, PFP is instead presenting a program of recorded video performances by this year’s nominees to be streamed as a virtual Nominee Night on YouTube at 7:30 p.m. on Monday, June 1st.
