Trevor Epplett's insight:

Outstanding achievement award for people in the entertainment production industry. It is neat to know that there is more than one award for this type of work.

Trevor Epplett's insight:

As a student who is into to sound design and has worked in theater productions this is very degrading. I have seen some outstanding shows and they would have not been the same without sound design. Cutting these categories from the Tony awards is ignorant to those who award such because they do not understand how sound brings together a show. Sound design is a form of art and is in the same category as lighting and props as contributions to the show.

Tony Awards Axes Sound Design Awards

Tony Awards Axes Sound Design Awards | Sound Design removed from Tony Awards | Scoop.it
On Wednesday, June 11, the Tony Awards nominating committee voted to remove the Best Sound Design Awards for plays and musicals. The decision was met with immediate outcry in the theatre community.
Trevor Epplett's insight:

I think an online petition is great to change something a lot of people believe in. I think more of an education is needed to what sound design is and it's place in theater.

Trevor Epplett's insight:

If they categories do not get reinstated then these will be the last names to hold the Tony award in sound design. It took the awards a while to catch on to what sound design is but now has dropped completely from these awards.

Trevor Epplett's insight:

Although the Tony committee does not agree there are other places to be awarded for works in the entertainment production industry. It is good to know that several other awards are out there and respect the work of all people in the industry. More focus should be on these types of awards then giving more popularity to high paid actors.
