Best of Halifax

Best Female Theatre Actor

Gold Winner Mary Fay Coady


Silver Winner Stephanie MacDonald


Bronze Winner Sue Leblanc-Crawford


There’s something about Mary Fay Coady. A completely magnetic stage presence and a killer sense of timing are just a couple of the reasons why it’s a real treat to watch her perform. And Halifax gets to do that fairly often—this year in productions like Tender Beast, Tribe of One (her favourite role of the year, “I got to play a badass killer in a tight black dress and combat boots,” she says. “What more could a girl want?”), David for Queen and Miss Caledonia, which she’ll tour through rural Atlantic Canada this month. And to top it all off, she’s a great friend. “Shoutout to my predecessor, Kat McCormack, wanna hang out later?”
