Before we announce the winners of the 2023 MyEntWorld Critics’ Pick Awards, we’re proud to present our annual Nominee Interview Series.


Augusta “Gus” Monet aka Coyote Ugly is nominated for Outstanding Performance (Supporting) for their memorable work in Doctor Faustus, an original two-person adaptation created & performed by Gus and their creative partner James Evans (who makes a cameo in our interview). In the show, Gus’ drag character Coyote Ugly played a joyfully sinister Mephistopheles gleefully selling tickets to Faustus’ downfall.
