"Holy Sh*t!"

As readers may recall, South Floridian Alex Weisman got cast in History Boys while attending Northwestern. The play got rave reviews, and Alex was well-recieved.

Then The Timeline Theatre Company extended the run.

His mother started hinting that "wouldn't it be funny if he got nominated for a Jeff?"  She was told that "kids" hardly ever got nominated, that this was saved almost always for actors who'd been working for awhile.

Then Weisman got nominated for a Jeff Award.  He cautioned his mother not to get too excited.  Nominations are rare, but not unheard of.  But a more established actor will probably win.

Guess what?

He won.

Congratulations, Alex. You've come a long way since The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe.
