"We are so grateful and humbled to receive such spectacular recognition for 'Marisol'!" says Stefan Espinosa, Director of “Marisol.” "It was certainly a challenging show for all of us, and at a challenging time for our department, but everyone put their heart and soul unflinchingly into their work - and it is incredibly affirming to see that work recognized at the national level."
