Who do you play in The Mysteries?: Angel
Tell us about The Mysteries: It is an immersive evening involving dinner, dessert, 54 actors and 48 playwrights riffing on 50 biblical plays from medieval England. The evening starts with Adam and Eve and ends with the final judgment.
Describe The Mysteries in three words: Entertaining. Powerful. Thought-provoking.
What's the wildest costume you wear in The Mysteries?: A mummy costume which involves lots of strips of white fabric, a ski mask, and black-light paint.
If you could be anyone from The Bible, who would you be?: Deborah. She was a prophet, a judge, and a leader of Israel in the Old Testament. Totally inspiring.
Which company member is most likely to actually have lived during Biblical times?: Matt Cox. Just look at his impressive hair and beard! Definitely Biblical.
Which company member is most likely to be the Messiah?: It's a toss up between Matt Bovee, Kara Kaufman (our stage manager), or just the entire cast of angels. They've all saved my booty so many time in life, rehearsal, and performance.
