Ten greatest stage actors of all time

What Bobo thinks he thinks is that making this list is probably even more prestigious than winning a Spokie.
(At least the English think so.)

Living: Gambon, McKellen, Rylance (pictured)
Female: Dench, Redgrave, Smith
Dead: Gielgud, Olivier, Richardson, Scofield


  1. Ok here's my list of the 10 greatest stage actors of all time (in the 25 years I"ve been here) in the Spokane area. It was hard and I left a lot of really amazing performers out, but here it is, not to offend anyone. I did 5 men abd 5 wonen. Not in any particular order, by the way.

    Kathey Doyal-Lipe
    Joan Welch
    Caryn Hoaglund
    Patty Duke
    Jane Fellows
    Bob Welch
    Michael Weaver
    Patrick Treadway
    Tom Heppler
    Patrick McHenry Kroetch

    I'd be interested in hearing what other people's lists would be.

  2. My list - no particular order, based on 35 years in the Spokane area audience, and, surprisingly, mostly different than 9/28-12:18's list which also includes many fine actors, just not my top 10:

    Bill Hay
    Pam Kingsley
    Tim Behrens
    Marilyn Langbehn
    Ron Varela
    Michael Weaver
    Jean Hardie
    Patrick Treadway
    Homer Mason
    Susan Hardie

  3. I agree with the above lists (at least the performers I know there.) I've only been in Spokane 10(ish) years, but here's my list. Again, no particular order.

    Jean Hardie
    Kathy Doyle Lipe
    Karen Nelsen
    Caryn Hoaglund
    Patrick Treadway
    Wes Dietrick
    Michael Weaver
    Carter Davis
    George Green
    Roger Welch
