Best Young Impresario 

Steven Eubank

Singing theme-park nerd by day, director of drag-and-underpants-themed musicals by night, Steven Eubank (whose responsibilities in Worlds of Fun's Stax of Wax show have him performing five shows a day) is just 21, but he estimates that he's directed more than a dozen plays and musicals. (His mother, after some thought, concludes that the number is actually 21.) For his first, Ruthless, he was a 15-year-old barking orders at grown-ups; for his latest, this summer's Debbie Does Dallas, he staged more high school orgies than Roman Polanski ever dreamed of. In between, he put up Rocky Horror, Hedwig and the Angry Inch and Zombie Prom. A Eubank production is usually risqué but not out-and-out nasty. "I like it a little naughty, campy and fearless," he says, "but I pride myself on making it accessible." This winter, he's off to New York for six months of independence and whatever comes up. Expect more ambitious madness come the next Fringe Fest: Rocky Horror author Richard O'Brien's Disgracefully Yours.
