Best Direction of a Play
Reader picked Nicholas Martin as their favorite Director of a Play for his work on the comic new play Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike. Martin, who received his first Tony nomination for Vanya and Sonia, creates a fast-paced world in which the characters — who enjoy a weekend in the county — riff off Anton Chekhov and compete for laughs. The director, who was nominated for a Drama Desk Award in 1999 for his direction of Betty's Summer Vacation, would take home his first award if he wins.
