West Is Best

It’s a good week to be Nippertown actor-director-filmmaker Kevin Craig West.

On Wednesday night, he opened onstage in Capital Repertory Theatre‘s wonderful production of “To Kill a Mockingbird” (see review here) in the crucial role of the Reverend Sykes. As Michael Eck wrote in his review for The Times Union, “And the excellent Kevin Craig West is given perhaps the play’s most arresting line, when he instructs Scout to stand up – ‘your father’s passing.'”

On Thursday night, during the awards ceremony at Elda’s on Lark in Albany, West was named Best Actor by the Knickerbocker Film Festival for his performance in the short film, “The Greatest Man Alive,” which was screened by the fest at the Madison Theatre in Albany during a week-long run which concluded on Thursday.
