Best Ubiquitous Theater Guy

Gavin Hawk

Our honoree leaves us with a conundrum: We want to list his accomplishments, particularly in the past year-ish, which has seen what is most likely his busiest ever. But we don’t want to bore you the way like a snoozy awards banquet attendee.

So, as briefly as possible, we'll dispense with some notable achievements. Hawk co-founded the non-profit acting company, Simple Theatre (Congratulations Joe, Death and the Maiden) in Sept. 2011 and has appeared in American Stage plays The Foreigner and Barefoot in the Park as well as his own improv night with Ricky Wayne (News of the Weird: Live). Hawk even somehow found time to venture across the bridge and direct a play at Jobsite, Closetland, and did a formidable job with that too.

Hawk holds a diploma from The Juilliard School Drama Division, and an M.F.A. in Acting/Directing from California State University, Long Beach. He is a also a member of the Actors Equity Association.

That's not all but we'll leave it at that.
