Best Theatre Actor / Actress

Joe York

It's funny that the winner in this specifically either-gendered category is this particular Joe: Mr. York has provided Austin musical stages with so many stunning cross-dressed performances that when we hear "The Drag" mentioned, the UT section of Guadalupe is sometimes the second thing we think of. But whether he's belting out show tunes in a fuschia dirndl or quietly and deeply emoting in ripped T-shirt and jeans, whether the story's camp or Kafka-esque, this leading man is one hell of a riveting performer.
