Center Theatre Group, which runs the Mark Taper Forum, the Ahmanson Theatre downtown and the Kirk Dougas Theatre in Culver City, got lots of love at the 2012 Ovation Awards Monday night at downtown's Los Angeles Theatre. The company was awarded Best Season, while the Michael Arabian's staging of Waiting for Godot at the Taper received nods for Best Ensemble, Best Leading Actor (Alan Mandell) and Best Supporting Actor (Hugo Armstrong). The awards are administered by Los Angeles Stage Alliance and voted on by qualifying theater professionals.
