2014 Washington, DC RuleBreaker Award Honoring Creative Genius and Arts Advocate Charlie Fink Tomorrow Night at Woolly Mammoth

No Rules Theatre Company proudly honors Charlie Fink with the 2014 RuleBreaker Award.

Charlie Fink.
Charlie Fink.

Tomorrow night No Rules Theatre Company honors a man who I admire so much-Charlie Fink. I don’t know anyone as passionate as Charlie when it comes to helping young playwrights, directors, designers, and actors develop their work. He is a cheerleader who backs it up with action. He does what he promises

And on a personal note, he has always encouraged me to continue to cover the DC metro area’s theatre arts scene with passion, and if I am doing that with Charlie-Fink-ish vigor I am very honored. He is a real mensch and friend to the theatre community and I salute him. No Rules Theatre Company has made the perfect selection this year. Bravo and thank you Charlie!


The RuleBreaker Award was designed to recognize individuals whose leadership, ingenuity, sense of collaboration and creativity have made a dynamic impact. Through the power of art they have been able to effect positive change in the lives of others.
