Okay, time to blow my own horn for a little. I just found out that I've been given the "Best Actor in a Leading Role for the 1999 - 2000 Season" award by a group here in St. Louis for playing the lead in Strindberg's The Father. Last year, I got one from another set of folks for playing Willie Loman in Death of a Salesman.
Now, I've never been much for awards and the like. I've always been a big believer that the satisfaction of a job well done was enough. Too, I've always thought of myself as a musician first and an actor second. But when your fellow actors and techies give you a gift like this, well, it feels pretty darned good.
Now if I can only get a part where the poor guy doesn't die at the end....
