Best Director

Donald Hicken

Posted 9/16/2009

Though his day job is heading up the Baltimore School for the Arts theater department, Donald Hicken moonlights a few times a year directing productions at Everyman Theatre or the Baltimore Shakespeare Festival. And when he does, he creates an entirely believable time and place for his actors to inhabit and then coaxes them to be equally clear about what they're feeling and what they're thinking. When he directed I Am My Own Wife at Everyman in the winter, he set the story in a haunted house of dust-cloaked clocks and lamps and got actor Bruce Nelson to define each of his 23 roles so precisely that the audience always knew who he was at any given moment.
