Washington D.C. actor Rick Foucheux (right).

Described as “the consummate theater citizen of Washington” actor Rick Foucheux has distinguished himself on D.C. stages for more than three decades. A four-time Helen Hayes award winner, the versatile Foucheux has tackled roles from the boisterous Tevye in “Fiddler on the Roof” to the aloof R. Buckminster Fuller at Arena Stage. But success on capital stages didn’t come without major bumps in the road. Now as Foucheux heads to retirement, he looks back on some of the highs and lows of his career, and talks to Kojo about how theater in our region has changed.
