A mainstay of Kenny Leon's True Colors Theatre Company, E. ROGER MITCHELL proves the best kind of utility player by putting fresh spins on vivid roles from Ceremonies in Dark Old Men's urban operator Blue Haven to Gem of the Ocean's bereft Citizen Barlow. Perhaps Mitchell's most impressive quality is his ability to take a sketchy character, such as The Sunset Limited's saintly ex-con, and invest it with dignity and gravitas. Mitchell can reliably make mediocre material strong, and strong material masterful. less...

CHRIS KAYSER has long enjoyed a reputation as one of Atlanta's finest leading men, giving a particularly memorable performance in Actor's Express' enigmatic Thom Pain (Based on Nothing) in 2007. He affirmed the depth and flexibility of his craft with two shows in 2008. In the Alliance Theatre's Eurydice, he offered a heartbreaking portrayal of a father who wouldn't let a little thing like being dead get in the way of his love for his daughter. Kayser offered some of the most implosive work of his career in Georgia Shakespeare's The Merchant of Venice as the despised moneylender Shylock. One of Shakespeare's most problematic roles, Kayser played the character not as a vengeful villain but as an intelligent man twisted by a lifetime of anti-Semitism in Venice, with his sadistic behavior emerging as a misguided act of defiance. With work like that, what will he do for an encore? atlanta.creativeloafing.com/gyrobase/eurydice/Content?oid=453632. less...

For years, local actor DAVID SILVERMAN established a reliable, boyish stage persona with occasional departures, like his gleefully nasty eBay addict in Jewish Theatre of the South’s Affluenza! last fall. Nothing prepared Atlanta audiences for his unnerving work as a pedophile in Actor’s Express’ world premiere musical Love Jerry in January. Silverman’s childlike affability took on sinister overtones, but he made the sexual predator more than just a villain, hitting the depths of self-loathing when the character confronted his transgressions — in song. Some performances change your assessment of an actor, but Silverman’s work in Love Jerry affected our insight into human nature. less...

No single male performance knocked it out of the park like the CAST OF TAKE ME OUT at Theatre in the Square’s Alley Stage. The nine-man team included the seemingly ubiquitous Daniel May, local stalwarts such as Brik Berkes and Isma’il ibn Conner, the reliably hilarious Matthew Myers and Bill Murphey, and relative rookies Brandon Dirden and Travis Young, who reached new career highs. As the diverse members of a scandal-plagued baseball team, Take Me Out’s all-star ensemble even managed to upstage its own shower scenes. less...

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.

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...
