Stephen as Duane Bashor in Pieces of Time

Stephen Nichols is a highly acclaimed stage actor, having won a Maddy, two LA Weekly and three DRAMA-LOGUE awards.

In a review of  Pieces of Time, critic Terry Fisher wrote: “It’s been done before – and more effectively – but not with an actor in the central role as compelling or tormented as Stephen Nichols. As Duane Keller, progressing from victim to victimizer, Nichols leaves an indelible image of a man balancing precariously on the edge of an abyss, ready to be hurled downward at the slightest shift of the wind. Nichols’ angelic faces becomes surly, tortured, driven, weary. Entrapped by his homicidal sickness and haunted by the knowledge that he is beyond redemption, beyond normalcy, Nichols’ killer magnetizes our attention. Particularly riveting is the scene which he does push-ups looking straight at the audience and talking about his compulsion to commit crime.”

Stephen’s most recent work was to direct Birds Do It, a comedy written by his wife, Lisa. He will appear in Glengarry Glen Ross at Pacific Resident Theatre in October.
