In response to state and city government recommendations to help prevent the spread of the coronavirus, the Chicago theater community's Jeff Awards will suspend judging productions until Friday, May 1.
Jeff Awards Chair John Glover said in a statement, "Our Jeff Awards members are concerned about the health and welfare of all the people who make up the theater community - from the performers, production teams and crews to the ushers, audiences and patrons who support them. Our social responsibility to the community also includes our own volunteer members."
Equity and non-Equity theaters with questions about current Jeff Awards eligibility or other related concerns can contact the appropriate Wing Chair. Deric Gochenauer, the Equity wing chair, can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org; and non-Equity Wing Chair Nick Obis is reachable at email@example.com .
