Laura Perrotta

Readers' Choice

Ms. Perrotta has logged numerous memorable performances in her professional acting career in Cleveland, at Great Lakes Theater and elsewhere. She triggered snarky laughs a couple years ago as Diane in The Little Dog Laughed at Beck Center. But her performance last year at Beck in 'night Mother, alongside the magnificent Dorothy Silver, was extra special and quite disturbing. Under the direction of Scott Plate, she played a suicidal woman who would not be deterred, and it was shattering.
