Born Ready - Backstage at the TBA Awards!

I don't know what we were thinking, letting these guys backstage at the TBA Awards Celebration, where they chatted up everyone from Kimberly and Patrick Dooley to Shaun and Abigail Bengson. Or maybe they just snuck in, dressed as Thrillpeddlers. Who knows? Either way, what you have before you is yet another Born Ready podcast, recorded au naturel in the A.C.T. Geary Theater green room on Monday, Nov. 10.


I believe Messrs. Ready and Hobbs would like to thank their sponsor, Jameson Irish Whiskey. 


Listen to the podcast here.

Congratulations to the 2014 TBA Awards Recipients!

Last night proved that Bay Area theatre really knows how to put on a show! From beginning to end, it was truly a sparkling celebration: the dazzling performers, the talented award recipients, the stunning venue, the fabulous clothes—even the delicious pomegranate champagne cocktails (did you have one? Wow!).

TBA would like to heartily thank the recipients of the TBA Legacy Awards for their inspiring commitment to Bay Area theatre: Joan Mankin, Jill Matichak, and Beach Blanket Babylon.

We would also like to congratulate all of the finalists whose work was recognized as outstanding by hundreds of their colleagues, and the recipients of the TBA Awards, to whom we wish continued artistic success.

TBA Awards on "Born Ready" Podcast

Posted By TBA Staff, Friday, October 24, 2014
Updated: Friday, October 24, 2014






Two Robs are better than one—and we have proof! TBA Awards program manager Robert Sokol was a recent guest on the weekly podcast "Born Ready," the brainchild of outspoken, irreverent theatre maven Rob Ready.


Get a special look under the hood of the TBA Awards as the Robs (and co-host Raymond Hobbs) hold forth...and possibly a fifth. 


Listen to the podcast here.


Listen to an earlier Born Ready podcast with special guest Brad Erickson!


"Born Ready" was recently listed as one of seven "Top of the Pods," by American Theatre magazine—along with TBA's new podcast, "Theatre Process." Check us both out!



The TBA Awards is a program of Theatre Bay Area. The 2014 TBA Awards Celebration will be held on November 10, 2014 at A.C.T.'s Geary Theater. Information and tickets to the celebration and after-party available here.
