What does it mean to be "Suzi Recommended"?
The Suzi Bass Awards send five Recommending Judges to the opening night of eligible shows. Those judges complete a form scoring all of the individual elements of a production including acting, directing, and design elements. Those scores are tallied and averaged to obtain a final production score. If that score is sufficient, then the show is Suzi Recommended.
After a show is deemed Suzi Recommended, notice is sent to the Play or Musical Panel judges to attend during the run. Those judges keep notes on the production for use when completing their end-of-the-season Nomination Ballots.
Suzi Recommended shows are eligible to receive nominations from our panel judges at the end of the season. Those nominations lead to Suzi Awards!
