And the Pulsar goes to ...

by Paul Wozniak
The 2013 Pulsars, recognizing the best in Lansing theatre, capped the final night of the Renegade Theatre Festival Saturday evening. Over 100 people packed the ceremony at the former Chrome Cat in Old Town. Evan Pinsonnault hosted the evening, sharing the stage with guest presenters, musical performances from nominated productions and Fred Engelgau’s puppet theater. 

Williamston Theatre’s one-woman comedy “Shirley Valentine” won five Pulsars, including Best Play and Best Lead Actress, while Over the Ledge Theatre Co.’s crowd-pleasing musical “The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee” won six, including Best Musical and Best Ensemble for a Musical.  

The Pulsar judges for the 2012-2013 season were Erin Buitendorp, Dana Casadei, Mary Cusack, Kathy and Tom Helma, Shawn Parker, Paul Wozniak and Ute von der Heyden.
