Kimberly Hickman making her mark on New York

Kimberly Faith Hickman was just Kim when I first met her. She was a Columbus State University theater student.

She graduated and then went to work at RiverCenter for the Performing Arts, and then went to work at the Springer Opera House.

It was at the Springer that she met actor Jens Rasmussen and they fell in love. They got married a couple of years ago. Jens was already living in New York and Kimberly just made the move.

Last year, she worked on "The Scottsboro Boys," which was up for a couple of Tony Awards.

I'm not sure when she got the job, but she became the assistant director of "Clybourne Park."

That show won Best Play at last night's Tony Awards.

What's it about?

I looked online and one critic said it was a "biting satire" about race relations today. Others have said it's a companion piece to "A Raisin in the Sun."

Playwright Bruce Norris won the 2010 Pulitzer Prize for Drama.

I got home last night just in time to see the announcement. I was waiting for the guy who accepted to mention Kim, but he didn't.

No one was here when the announcement was made, but I squealed, alarming my dogs.

Not bad for a girl from Phenix City, huh?
