BEST ACTRESS (2010)

Mo Perry

Mo Perry has found an increasing amount of work over the last couple of years on Twin Cities stages, and that is a very welcome thing. She can bring a sense of deep, knowing silliness to her characters, which was in abundance in a pair of roles in Torch Theater's The Mary Tyler Moore Show. Her Georgette was so full of treacle that spontaneous diabetes seemed an imminent danger, and her Rhoda was brassier than a James Brown horn section. She took a more serious turn in Hedda Gabler with Gremlin, providing repressed heat and the genuine sense of danger and unpredictability she generates when biting into substantive parts. In 2009 she seemed to be expanding her range, while also taking advantage of opportunities to be a big silly. Mo' Mo, please.
