Baltimore Arts

Best Actress

Dawn Ursula

Dawn Ursula has sparkled in the past as the title character in the Baltimore Shakespeare Festival’s The Taming of the Shrew, as Black Mary in Everyman Theatre’s Gem of the Ocean, and as Mrs. “Bunny” Colvin on HBO’s The Wire. But Ursula turns in her greatest performance yet as Ruth in A Raisin in the Sun, now at Everyman. With her high cheekbones and hawk-like nose, Ursula projects such a force-field of strength that when her characters falter, the effect can be devastating. When Ruth despairs over her marriage and her new pregnancy, Ursula seems to stagger and we in the audience stagger along with her.
