Other productions that got highlighted:<em> The Pitmen Painters</em> by Timeline and <em>The Doyle &amp; Debbie Show</em> which was at the Royal George. And actors like&nbsp;Larry Yando and Diane D&#39;Aquila won top prizes for principal role performances, Yando for his role in Court Theatre&#39;s <em>Angels in America</em> and D&#39;Aquila&#39;s role in CST&#39;s <em>Elizabeth&nbsp;Rex</em>. The next Jeff Awards are the Non-Equity ones, and that&#39;ll be June 3, 2013.&nbsp;</p><p>Questions? Tips?
