Hartt’s Davis, Lawrence Receive Top Honors
Robert H. Davis, professor in the Hartt School Theatre Division, received a Connecticut Critics Circle Award for his performance in The Exonerated at TheatreWorks of Hartford.
At the same awards ceremony, hosted by Joanne Woodward at the Westport Country Playhouse, Hartt alumnus Glenn Lawrence '03 received the award for “Outstanding Debut” for his performance as the title character in Goodspeed Musicals’ production of Li’l Abner.
Davis has recently been seen at Hartford Stage in Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, A Christmas Carol, and the Brand: New play festival. Other regional credits include Shakespeare & Company, Tulane Shakespeare Festival and Swine Palace Productions. He has served as voice and dialect coach for the Yale Repertory Theatre and the Colorado Shakespeare Festival. He also teaches at the Eugene O’Neill Theatre Center’s National Theatre Institute.
This past summer, Davis was a senior faculty member for the NEH National Institute on Teaching Shakespeare held at Smith College. He is a Designated Linklater Voice teacher.
Currently residing outside of New York City, Lawrence auditioned for the role of Li’l Abner on the recommendation of a friend who had previously worked with director Scott Schwartz. Prior to appearing at the Goodspeed Opera House, Lawrence played Greg in A Chorus Line at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in Scotland and Kenickie in Grease with the Summer Place Players in West Hartford. .
