The 38th annual Carbonell Award nominations are out, and Palm Beach County came out on top with the most nominations at 62. The Maltz Jupiter Theater topped all other theaters, carrying 19 nominations.
The Maltz is no stranger to Carbonells, having received more than 20 nominations per year in the past two years.
Notable nominees include two recently established Boca Raton theaters: Slow Burn Theater Company and the Wick Theater and Costume Museum.
It was a recession-era wallop that left South Florida theater circles reeling: the 2011 shuttering of Manalapan’s Florida Stage, followed almost immediately by the closing of Boca Raton’s Caldwell Theatre Company.
