Best Local Female Actor

Courtney Patterson

Staff Pick

One of the funniest and most effervescent actresses in Atlanta, COURTNEY PATTERSON frequently proves that she has the dramatic chops to match her lighter fare. Her fiery portrayal of Queen Elizabeth in Georgia Shakespeare's Richard III proved that she can match one of theater's greatest villains. For an even more challenging contemporary turn, she fleshed out an idealistic young American peace activist in Synchronicity Performance Group's My Name Is Rachel Corrie, carrying a long one-woman show and transcending the limitations of the “in her own words” material. She's the kind of performer who's so talented and versatile, you wish there was a part for her in every play.
