Best Local Actor Not About to Leave Town 

Delia MacDougall

MacDougall was already losing her voice on opening night of Denis Johnson's Soul of a Whore. She played a stripper-turned-church-lady occasionally possessed by a demon -- which, counting carefully, amounts to three roles. Whore is a hugely demanding, three-hour play written entirely in verse, yet somehow MacDougall took care of her voice and went on to give tour de force performances on every night of its extended run.
