The End of the Barrymore Awards?

Today, the otherwise defunct Theatre Alliance of Greater Philadelphia announced the winners of what will probably be the last-ever Barrymore Awards, which are (were?) basically the Tony Awards of Philadelphia. Hopefully, some organization or institution will figure out a way to carry the Barrymore Awards forward in TAGP’s absence. In any event, here are the 2012 Barrymore Award winners:
