BEST ACTRESS Minneapolis 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.

Congrats, Mo! You ROCK! You have a tremendous sense of expression, dynamics and depth of character as well as very talented actress who is able to make the character come alive on so many levels. Great pic City Pages for Best Actress 2010!

City Pages Best-Of, Iveys, etc. -- it's all well and good. But the award Mo really deserves is a monetary one. She's proven that she should be working at theatres that can actually pay her a living wage. You listening, Guthrie?

Your Twin Cities' theater experience is not complete; until you have seen Mo Perry in action. Well deserved!!

I have been following Mo Perry's career since she starred in a one woman show at Bryant-Lake Bowl some 5 years ago. You didn't mention her great performances in "Dancing at Lughnasa" and "Somebody/Nobody" to name a few more! It's about time the Twin Cities (namely, IVEY awards) gave her the full recognition she so greatly deserves.
