Best Actor 

Greg Violand

At first blush, the character of a brash and ham-fisted lout such as George in Dobama's Humble Boy wouldn't seem like a star vehicle. But Greg Violand set aside his customary elegance and panache, attacking this character with raging desire (for a woman he lusts after) and disgust (for her wimpy son). Whether slowly simmering or going postal, Violand crafted a small masterpiece of florid masculinity. Under Joel Hammer's superb direction, Violand and the entire cast hit every humorous note — even the dark ones — in this flawed but wildly entertaining play.
