Best Blue-Collar Actor 

Dan Folino

He was fully clothed and frontally naked. He was a human and an animal. He was himself and his creepy alter ego. And Dan Folino accomplished all these theatrical tasks with his usual professional aplomb. As the hardest-working actor and singer in Cleveland theater, Folino takes on iconic roles and turns them into small wonderments. As the Beast in Beauty and the Beast, he commanded the stage while burnishing his songs with his rich baritone voice. In the riveting production of Equus, Folino became a horse-mutilating teenager who got naked physically and psychologically. And as both title roles in Jekyll and Hyde, he transitioned from nerdy Doc to brutal sociopath with a flick of his blond wig. And he made it all look surprisingly easy. Guess what: It wasn't.
