Best Guest Actor

Glynn Turman

Staff Pick

As artistic director of True Colors Theatre, just as in his tenure at the Alliance Theatre, Kenny Leon brought in terrific actors from out of town. Even by the high standard he’s already set in Atlanta, he still found a standout performance with GLYNN TURMAN IN TRUE COLORS’ CEREMONIES IN DARK OLD MEN. Turman’s career includes the film Cooley High, TV’s “A Different World” and “The Wire” and a Broadway debut of A Raisin in the Sun. In Ceremonies, he brought remarkable depth to his performance as a former vaudeville dancer turned failed barbershop owner. Turman not only captured the desperation of a life on the economic margins, he proved uproariously funny in the play’s lighter moments — which served to make Ceremonies’ mournful conclusion all the more tragic.
