Congratulations to Kirsten Greenidge and Kristin Baker!

In an amazing week full of major events and honors, more terrific news: Boston’s own Kirsten Greenidge (her play The Luck of the Irish recently closed at the Huntington after a successful run) won an Obie Award Monday night, for her off-Broadway debut Milk Like Sugar. The play was a co-production of Playwrights Horizons, Women’s Project, and the La Jolla Playhouse.

Of course, you may have heard all about that already, but did you know that Milk began its life as the ten-minute Annie Desmond Gets a Tattoo, part of the lineup of Boston Theater Marathon XI? Cool, huh? 

According to Kirsten, the post-award reality check came quickly: “It's insane! One minute on a red carpet (which was in a tight corner next to a half-defunct bar station) and the next I am realizing we don't have enough baby wipes to get back to Boston with!!!”

Congratulations, Kirsten! We know you’ll keep making Beantown proud.


On another BTM-related note, StageSource’s Kristin Baker raised $1,200 in her Marathon “run” to benefit the theatre service organization. Way to GO!
