In August we welcomed new Company Member Mason Mahoney to get all snuggly with us under the umbrella. We know you'll love him just as much as we do!
How did you get involved with SU?
Heidi Jedlicka and I were meeting for a reunion drink after her return from South Korea. As we were catching up, she mentioned that SU was still looking for a few men for THE RAVAGERS, and wanted to know if I was interested. I was, and Blake called me the very next day. A few days later rehearsals began, and I was all about it. The stars totally aligned and I couldn't have been happier!
What excites you about SU?
Many many things. Here are a few:
SU does new work. I love new work. LOVE. IT. Further, these new works are allowed to grow so much throughout the process of creating them that, by the end, everyone involved feels ownership over what is presented. It is such a satisfying and welcoming process for artists.
SU loves the audience. Loves them enough not only to challenge them and deliver thought-provoking work, but to also have a conversation with the audience about that work. Sometimes, the audience even gets to truly help shape the work, as in RAPTURE. Love it.
SU is made up of some really wonderful and inspiring artists. They aren't afraid to take risks or to challenge one another, and they have welcomed me in to the fold. Squeee!!!
See this cutie in action during the FINAL RAPTURE READING, eek! (for awhile, anyway) November 2 and 3 at 7:30p at Interact.
