Darryl Maximilian Robinson, a veteran and award-winning stage actor and play director, who is Founder, Artistic Director and Producer of both the multiracial chamber theater, The Excaliber Shakespeare Company of Chicago and the video and theatre arts group, The Excaliber Shakespeare Company Los Angeles Archival Project, has been named a winner of a 2022 Making The World Happening Award from Allevents.in. Mr. Robinson received the honor for his numerous online theatre-related offerings at Allevents.in during the last two years of the catastrophic Covid-19 pandemic. For the last two years The Theatre and all the live arts have suffered from lack of live audiences and diminished resources due to the risk factors Covid presented. Darryl Maximilian Robinson made a point of suggesting to his fellow professional performers and associates that they always made an effort to document their work during this period so that future artists and audiences could still see and experience the creative work despite the imposing challenges that Covid caused. Having been involved in more than 250 live stage and literary arts presentations around the country during his 48 years of being a artist, the Chicago-born and stage-trained thespian had an archive of current and past videos, photos, written articles and theatre stories that he could draw from to create online theatre offerings that were Covid-safe and free for perusal by the general public and particularly students of The Theatre. Darryl Maximilian Robinson was delighted and thrilled on May 9, 2022 when he received the news that he was one of numerous individuals and groups to win a 2022 Making The World Happening Award from Allevents.in for his creative efforts. Having won a variety of theatre honors over the years, including a 1997 Chicago Joseph Jefferson Citation Award for Outstanding Actor In A Principal Role In A Play for his performance as Sam Semela in The ESC's revival of Athol Fugard's 'Master Harold And The Boys' ( presented at the much-missed Heartland Cafe Studio Theatre in the Roger's Park neighborhood of the Windy City ) and a 2015 / 2016 Los Angeles Elate Season Ticket Holder Award nomination for Best Actor for his performance as the debonair, but aging leading man Ernest in Tad Mosel's 'Impromptu' ( performed at The Lincoln Stegman Theatre in North Hollywood ), Darryl Maximilian Robinson was pleasantly surprised to be cited for his creative behind the scenes work with his win of a 2022 Making The World Happening Award from Allevents.in. In acknowledgement of his 2022 Making The World Happening Award win from Allevents.in, Darryl Maximilian Robinson would like to extend a open invitation to local LA theatre artists and supporters to visit his direct arts information site: The Theatre Blog of Darryl Maximilian Robinson and to share a link to an Encore Presentation of his December 30. 2019 appearance on the internet performing arts television show 'The Actor's Choice ' Episode 5.52 which is hosted by veteran entertainment journalist and reporter Ron Brewington. The show opens with a lively interview with talented young Los Angeles stage and television performer Brandin Stennis and concludes with Darryl Maximilian Robinson discussing his 2019 Broadwayworld Chicago Award nomination for Best Performer In A Musical or Revue for his critically-praised performance in the dual roles of The Chairman Mr. William Cartwright and Mayor Thomas Sapsea in a 2018 revival of Rupert Holmes' Tony Award-winning Best Musical Whodunit 'The Mystery of Edwin Drood' staged at the more than a century old St Bonaventure Church in The Windy City. Darryl Maximilian Robinson knows that it is always an honor to be recognized for one's work. And he and The Excaliber Shakespeare Company will continue to do their work.
