We celebrate and salute these stellar individuals who work at every level critical to live performance, who epitomize the vital roles played onstage: performer Tom Murrin; backstage: producer Lori E. Seid; and offstage: our members…

Our honorees this year are integral to the story of Performance Space 122, each contributing over the past quarter-century to build Performance Space 122 into a home to the most inventive and creative performance work in the country. Tom Murrin, aka Alien Comic, has worked in the space since the mid-80s, both performing his own shows and curating variety nights that introduced hundreds of new artists over the past two decades. Lori E. Seid began stage managing shows when that meant stringing clip lamps with extension cords, and went on to win Obie, Bessie, and Theatre Craft awards for her technical achievements behind the scenes. Off stage we are grateful to our members whose generosity supports a where theater can be reinvented, ideas can take flight, and new voices can be heard.
