It’s a tidy office in South Tulsa, far from the thriving, eccentric arts districts revitalizing the central city. The waiting-room table offers local magazines and a book chronicling the history of Christianity in America. It’s a cozy, calming atmosphere, maybe not what one would expect to see at the home office of Celebrity Attractions, the production company that brought “Wicked” to Tulsa.

The dog days—they’re here. Heat so blinding and relentless that rational thinking becomes a massive feat. Endless hours with restless children. Nothing to do but get as naked as permissible and as ridiculous as possible.
Blessed are those who bring us farce in such moments. The genre celebrates the absurdity of human existence with improbable plot twists, exaggerated characters, larger-than-life situations and broad humor. It’s the funhouse mirror-image of tragedy, the gift of laughing at the preposterous nonsense of it all.
Theatre Pops’ production of Tulsa native Tracy Letts’ epic drama “August: Osage County” won the award for Outstanding Play at the 2014-15 Tulsa Awards for Theater Excellence ceremony, held Sunday night at Cain’s Ballroom.
The award earned Theatre Pops a cash prize of $10,000. It is the second straight year that Theatre Pops has won at the TATE awards — its production of “Seminar” was the third-place winner last year.
