Best Female Actor

Carolyn Cook

Staff Pick

In 2005, the acting awesomeness of CAROLYN COOK had a globe-trotting scope. For Georgia Shakespeare’s summer repertory, she played fading aristocrats on two continents: New Orleans’ Blanche DuBois in A Streetcar Named Desire and Russia’s Madame Ranevskaya in The Cherry Orchard. For the French-language Theatre du Reve, she starred in Les Précieuses Ridicules. And in her tour de force solo show The Syringa Tree at Horizon Theatre, she shifted from dozens of South African people of different race, gender and class. Cook could be a one-woman United Nations.
