Best Actor in a Drama (2015) – Denver Westword

I was absolutely thrilled to receive this:

Denver Westword Best of Denver 2015

“Dave Belden played John Starr — the narrowly focused and sometimes unpleasant violinist whose obsession with music blinds him to his living daughter’s hunger for affection — with quiet conviction in Charles Ives Take Me Home. He also played the violin so beautifully that the instrument itself spoke, and man and music became one, lending depth and intensity to a transcendent script. It’s rare these days to leave a theater feeling that you’ve actually heard the inexpressible expressed, but that’s what Belden did for Curious audiences.”

Even better, my cast mates, the director, the production, and the theatre also received awards:

Kate Berry Mann, Best Actress in a Drama
James Hunt, Best Supporting Actor in a Drama
Christy Montour-Larson, Best Direction of a Play
Charles Ives Take Me Home, Best Theater Production
Curious Theatre Company, Best Theater for Contemporary Drama
