The 37th Annual Carbonell Awards Celebrates the Best
On Monday night, April 1, at the 37th annual Carbonell Awards, when the statuettes were all handed out, the musical numbers had concluded and the audience had left Broward Center for the Performing Arts to attend the after-party, two things could not be denied: South Florida is home to a rich, vibrant theatrical community packed with talent; and it was a good night to be the Maltz Jupiter Theatre.
Although the nominations were spread among 18 of South Florida theaters, three theaters dominated Monday night’s ceremony. Maltz Jupiter Theatre was honored with nine awards, winning every musical category, a feat that hasn’t happened in 34 years, when the Miami Beach Theatre of the Performing Arts swept the musical categories at the third annual Carbonell Awards. The awards for Maltz Jupiter Theatre were spread across three productions: The Music Man took honors for Best Musical, Best Actor/Musical, Matt Loehr; Musical Direction, Anne Shuttleworth; Choreography, Shea Sullivan; and Costume Design, Jose M.
