Best Male Actor

David Silverman

Staff Pick

For years, local actor DAVID SILVERMAN established a reliable, boyish stage persona with occasional departures, like his gleefully nasty eBay addict in Jewish Theatre of the South’s Affluenza! last fall. Nothing prepared Atlanta audiences for his unnerving work as a pedophile in Actor’s Express’ world premiere musical Love Jerry in January. Silverman’s childlike affability took on sinister overtones, but he made the sexual predator more than just a villain, hitting the depths of self-loathing when the character confronted his transgressions — in song. Some performances change your assessment of an actor, but Silverman’s work in Love Jerry affected our insight into human nature.
