the competition for *Assassins* at AACT

Reports from Bobo's mole in Charlotte suggest that the Civic's *Assassins* did very well, though it was tough in terms of blocking and projection to open up a show designed for a small black box theater to accommodate the needs of a huge space with about three balconies.

The final rankings will be revealed approximately tomorrow (Sat 23 June) at 4 pm or 5 pm (Spokane time). Productions to watch out for:
Who Will Sing for Lena? (Tulsa)
A one-woman show. Black woman shoots her white boss after he raped and imprisoned her; a jury of white men — this is in Georgia in 1944 — sent her to the electric chair.
Sweeney Todd
Blood and guts, Sondheim-style, from Bradenton, Fla.
The Women of Lockerbie (La Crosse, Wis.)
An American woman and Scottish women search through the wreckage of Pan Am 103. Overtones of Greek tragedy.
