The late playwright Horton Foote influenced the choices of both individual artists who stood above the crowd in local theater in 2011.
Foote wrote the play “A Trip to Bountiful,” the movie version of which won its star, Geraldine Page, an Oscar in 1985. He also penned the screenplay for Harper Lee’s novel “To Kill a Mockingbird,” which guided Gregory Peck to Hollywood gold in 1962.
Today, two performers who recently assumed these familiar roles on local stages, stand to be applauded once again. They are Paul Eggington and Lynn Milgrim, the Daily Pilot’s Man and Woman of the Year in Theater for 2011.
