Eric Percival was recently named Outstanding Supporting Actor in the 2010 Planet Connections Awards for his performance as Basil Hallward in The Picture of Dorian Gray, directed by fellow Active Theater member Glory Kadigan. His award-winning performance was acclaimed as "compelling and captivating" (The Happiest Medium), "especially moving" (Backstage), "simple and poised, completely believable" (Theatre is Easy), and "a remarkable performance" (Stage and Cinema). After following that up with a successful run as Horatio Alger in Theatre Askew's Horatio's Rise, he is now entering rehearsals for The Changing Room at the T. Schreiber Studio, named by Backstage as New York's Best Off-Off-Broadway Theater Company in 2009 and 2010. The play opens Feb 26 and runs through April 3.
