Ernest Perry Jr.
Stepping in for ace Atlanta actor Thomas Byrd, ERNEST PERRY JR. walked away with the Alliance Hertz Stage's scorching version of August Wilson's "King Hedley II", directed by Kent Gash.

Stepping in for ace Atlanta actor Thomas Byrd, ERNEST PERRY JR. walked away with the Alliance Hertz Stage's scorching version of August Wilson's "King Hedley II", directed by Kent Gash. As Elmore, a sinister ex-con, street hustler and father figure, the Chicago-based actor carried himself with a smooth confidence that proved absolutely hypnotic. Perry possesses the kind of velvet voice and cobra eyes that can talk anybody into doing anything, so if we're lucky enough to see him again, be sure to hang on to your valuables. less...

Steve Coulter
Time and again STEVE COULTER brought an ingenious deadpan sense of humor to a series of thoughtful, tuned-out characters who all groove on private wavelengths: a brilliant, distant jazz musician in Theatre in the Square's "Side Man"; a comically matter-of-fact conquistador in Actor's Express' "Spain";more...
Time and again STEVE COULTER brought an ingenious deadpan sense of humor to a series of thoughtful, tuned-out characters who all groove on private wavelengths: a brilliant, distant jazz musician in Theatre in the Square's "Side Man"; a comically matter-of-fact conquistador in Actor's Express' "Spain"; and a mild-mannered yet obsessed bookworm in Actors Theatre of Atlanta's "Underneath the Lintel" (staged twice in 10 months). Coulter's slow, deliberate timing never fails to make audiences lean closer. less...

In "Jesus Hopped the 'A' Train" at Theatre in the Square's Alley Stage, DARIUS TRULY rode a whirlwind.

In "Jesus Hopped the 'A' Train" at Theatre in the Square's Alley Stage, DARIUS TRULY rode a whirlwind. Playing a serial killer and junkie turned born-again Christian, Truly commanded the intimate playhouse. He exercised while counting out books of the Old Testament, preached as if in a pulpit and generally glowed like someone with a divine spark. Watching Truly's soaring work left viewers as exhausted as a marathon runner. less...

Mark Salyer
Out-of-town actors, singers and other performers blow into Atlanta all the time, but none has become an honorary citizen like MARK SALYER.

Out-of-town actors, singers and other performers blow into Atlanta all the time, but none has become an honorary citizen like MARK SALYER. As gender-bending rock diva Hedwig in "Hedwig and the Angry Inch" at Actor's Express, Salyer managed to put a distinctive flourish on a role closely associated with creator John Cameron Mitchell. And Salyer's stage wasn't just bounded by the confines of Actor's Express, but extended nearly to I-285, with in-character "Hedwig" sightings occurring everywhere from Outwrite Books to Cowtippers. Thanks to Salyer, it was the Summer of Hedwig. less...

Daniel May
May shows a lot of gusto in playing crazies, donning an English accent for nefarious Kreegar in Action Movie and pigtails and girls' bathing suits for the schizo Chicklet in Psycho Beach Party, both at Dad's Garage, to name only the most recent. But he's every bit as affecting in sympathetic, romanticmore...
May shows a lot of gusto in playing crazies, donning an English accent for nefarious Kreegar in Action Movie and pigtails and girls' bathing suits for the schizo Chicklet in Psycho Beach Party, both at Dad's Garage, to name only the most recent. But he's every bit as affecting in sympathetic, romantic roles, such as his Romeo for Georgia Shakespeare Festival and three doomed gay men in 7 Stages' A Glorietta. He may have the looks and demeanor of a leading man, yet he unfailingly reveals the flexibility of a character player. less...

For several seasons Jim Roof has proved a pleasing supporting player in such Atlanta theaters as Horizon and 7 Stages, often carrying a humorously human touch not unlike a young Jack Lemmon. Recent months have seen him confidently taking on two high-profile parts: an arrogant, hyper-competitive M.D. in the Alliance Theatre's Wit and the hopeful but doomed title role in Theatre in the Square's The Lynching of Leo Frank. With hope he'll be playing more leading roles: He wears the limelight well. less...
