I just graduated in May with a BA in Theatre from Point Park University. I’m all about classical theatre, so I’m very excited to be playing Ferdinand. I get to fill the ever mandatory role of the Shakespearean lover. The totally absolutely love-at-first-sight Shakespearean lover. I’ll-lift-thousands-of-logs-for-your-love-so-don’t-be-sad-about-me Shakespearean lover. But then again, that has to be tempered pretty constantly with the loss of my father. It’s a weird emotional balancing act. Or roller coaster. Or something else suitably shifty and shaky.
This will be my first experience acting outside. I’m looking forward to the ups and downs of that. I don’t know if we play rain or shine, but I’d be so down for a “Tempest” appropriate show in the pouring rain. I’m also looking forward to working with Adam, Connor, and Tonya on another Shakespeare show (the first being “Hamlet” with Three Rivers Theatre Company).
