Best Actor

Marc Horwitz

Posted 9/16/2009

Marc Horwitz is the John Gielgud of Maryland. That was obvious this spring at the Performance Workshop Theatre when Horwitz tackled Gielgud's Ages of Man, a one-man evening of Shakespearean monologues and sonnets. Like his role model, Horwitz makes every syllable of the Elizabethan English distinct and clear, but never seems to strain for enunciation. In fact, he has such a buttery tone that each word seems to be swimming in a sauté pan. When Horwitz tells his lover that she shall not "lose possession of that fair thou ow'st/ Nor shall death brag thou wander'st in his shade," he untangles the knotty syntax and makes it sound like a conversational valentine. If we still lived in a radio age, Horwitz would probably be a major star, his voice is that intoxicating.
