TOP THEATRE ARTIST OF 2019
The Dora Award-winning Fulton got the year off to a terrific start by adding charisma and diva-esque notes to her conflicted concert violinist in Nick Green's Next Stage Festival play Dinner With The Duchess. In her Shaw Festival debut, she brought layers of complexity to one of the most iconic roles in the repertoire – Amanda Wingfield in The Glass Menagerie – and also joined the ensemble for the revelatory revival of Mae West's Sex. At the end of the year, she added a bit of magic to the tricky role of the church lady in Stephen Adly Guirgis's Between Riverside And Crazy, seducing both the central character and Coal Mine Theatre's sold-out audiences.
