Best Theatre Director

Dave Steakley

What it is about Zach Theatre that grabs the attention of dramaphiles not just locally but across the country? Well, the sizzle's in the Steakley. For almost a quarter of a century, Dave Steakley has been staging plays that dazzle eyes and ears while engaging hearts and minds. Whether he's reimagining a classic, as with his contemporary pop-infused A Christmas Carol, mounting an epic look back at history, as with his regional premiere of the Tony Award-winning civil rights drama All the Way, or providing an intimate look at family, as in the domestic drama Mothers and Sons, Zach's producing artistic director makes theatre that's vibrant and vital. On the shores of Lady Bird Lake, he's built a powerhouse playhouse.
