Best Ringmaster of Bay Area Theater 

Stuart Bousel

To say that producer, director, playwright, and occasional actor Stuart Bousel runs a three-ring circus would be an understatement. It's more like 20-ring. Whether taming rowdy bar audiences at SF Theater Pub or corralling the Greek gods at the SF Olympians festival, Bousel leads the indie theater scene with a jolly, leonine roar, a crackling wit, and graduate school-level preshow speeches. He's the kind of artist who gets an idea for a show one month and is producing it at the Exit Theatre or Custom Made the next. A no-holds-barred critic of theater-as-usual, he oversees and writes for a site, SFTheaterPub.

WordPress.com, that's become the place theater artists go to see what the issues are.
