We are thrilled to announce that Jerry Wasserman has won the 2023 Max Wyman Award in Critical Writing!
The Max Wyman Award honours outstanding commentary on the arts in British Columbia. From the announcement: “The jury citation reads: ‘Jerry Wasserman’s remarkable career in many ways embodies the aims of this award. His decades as a teacher and as a performer give his writing about the theatre a sympathetic and thoughtful understanding that is expressed in language that is lively, direct and deeply informed. The jury was unanimous in its appreciation of the way he has encouraged and enhanced a wider appreciation of the richness of the Vancouver arts scene and the talents of those who make that richness possible—both through his print and media reviews and through his website, which is a consistent source of information and critical context on all things theatre in Vancouver.’”
