A Group Picture of the 2012 Helen Hayes Nominees by Joel Markowitz

Last night a reception was held at Rivers at the Watergate in Washington, DC to honor this year’s Helen Hayes Awards nominees. It was a wonderful event filled with lots of schmoozing, many pats on the back,  handshakes, and congratulations. The wonderful part of the event was to see so many of the young Helen Hayes Awards nominees beaming with pride. The picture below tells the story.

Here’s the group picture by photographer extraordinaire Shannon Finney.
