It's official. Anda (Beit Lessin), The Celebration (Habimah/Cameri), The Good Woman of Szechuan (Cameri) and Enemies: a Love Story (Gesher) are competing for Play of the Year at the upcoming Israel Theater Prize ceremonies on April 3 at the new Beersheba Performing Arts Center. In all, there are 19 categories, and the Cameri Theater leads the pack with 31 nominations. Habimah has 14, Beit Lessin has 13 and Gesher has nine. The leading contender for Play of the Year is Good Woman, with 11 nods, including Best Director - Udi Ben-Moshe, who won last year with Make My Heart Quiver. Keren Peles also won last year, and she's up again for Composer of the Year. Ola Shur Selektar was nominated again for best actress. That's followed by Fiddler on the Roof and Amadeus, both from the Cameri with seven nominations each, including Best Actor for Natan Datner as Tevye and Yitzhak Hiskiya as Antonio Salieri. A-list actor Itai Tiran is nominated for Best Actor as Christian in Celebration, and as Supporting Actor in Amadeus (Mozart). Rinat Matatov is nominated twice in the Most-Promising category, for Nutcase and August: Osage County. For Best Comedy, the race is among God of Carnage (Beit Lessin), Odd Couple (Habimah), His Name Precedes Him (Haifa/Cameri) and Gesher's delicious Twelfth Night, in which Alex Senderovitch gets the nod for Best Supporting Actor as Malvolio. Unsurprisingly, the Best Play category also garners Best Director chances for Hanan Snir (Celebration) and Yevgeny Arye (Enemies), but also for Ilan Ronen and Micki Gurevitch - Osage County and Love of the Dragon, Gurevitch's new play at the Khan for which he also was nominated for Playwright of the Year. Other nominees in that category include Hillel Mittelpunkt (Anda) and Anat Gov (Oh God).
