Scott Ross is a local playwright who won the 1995 Thompson Theatre Playwright Award (professional category) for The Dogs of Foo, which was produced by University Theatre at N.C. State. He received a 2000 United Arts grant for the production of his drama A Liberal Education, which debuted in Thompson Studio Theatre, and his one-act play Unreliable Witness was produced at REP in 1991, where it was directed by CVNC music critic Roy C. Dicks. He has written theater criticism for Spectator Magazine (1981-86), movie and book reviews for Raleigh's News & Observer (1986-91), and served as Dance, Comedy and Theater editor for Triangle.citysearch.com (1998-2000). He was the primary CD reviewer for the quarterly Sondheim Review from 1994-2004. He also penned two original musical revues — I Love A Piano: The Music of Irving Berlin and Serenading The Moon: The Songs of Johnny Mercer — for University Theatre's annual TheatreFest series. His most recent play is a dramatic adaptation of Booth Tarkington's novel The Magnificent Ambersons, and his book on the films of Billy Wilder will be published by McFarland. He was awarded a B.A. in Playwriting from Hampshire College in 1990.
