Best actress for a script I haven’t written yet: BECCA MCCOY

Becca McCoy is damn talented, and also pretty damn versatile. When she played Sue in Sheila Cowley’s southeastern premiere of Flying, she more than did this fine script justice — she gave audiences a window into a soul she built from those words, and she did it in a way that made me not only remember why I love theater, but made me think that if I ever wrote a play, she’s the actress I would demand play the lead. Probably even if the lead was a guy. She’s that good. beccamccoy.com. —Cathy Salustri
