Brand consulting firm Brand Savant, which has offices in both Riverside and San Diego, won a total of 14 ADDY awards in the Inland Empire, including "Best of Show," seven gold, four silver and two bronze at the annual American Advertising Federation, Inland Empire awards ceremony March 9.

All the ADDYs the firm received were for work on Riverside Medical Clinic.

At the San Diego ADDY awards, Red Door Interactive won a Silver ADDY for its work on behalf of Rubio's Restaurants Inc.

"What was exciting about this project is that it brought together team members from multiple disciplines – from strategy and creative to technical and user-experience – to produce a fun game that attracted and engaged consumers," said Lauren Dougherty, business supervisor at Red Door. "Not only were we able to generate in-store trials, but the game resulted in 19,000 shares on social networks and via email on the first day it launched."

Globe veteran Scott Schwartz (A Room with a View at the Globe, The Hunchback of Notre Dame at La Jolla Playhouse) returns to direct Blair and Kinosian’s Off Broadway hit, a vaudevillian mystery musical with an energetic two-man cast. Great American novelist Arthur Whitney has been murdered at his own birthday party, and his killer could be any one of the guests. But this is no ordinary murder mystery. The entire world of this hilarious musical is brought to life by two incredible performers: one plays the detective, the other plays all 10 suspects, and both play the piano! Murder for Two is an irrepressibly wacky tour-de-force musical that NewYork1 dubbed “a must-see 90-minute jolt of caffeinated creativity!”
