My Dear Clarissa... SPIDER'S WEB @ The Alley Theatre

Summer Chills is upon us at the Alley Theatre in Houston, Texas.  Avoid the dank and sweaty outdoors of the Buffalo Bayou and bring your British sensibilities to the Hubbard Stage for an evening of crime, murder, and mystery.

This is a rarely produced Christie.  For those of you familiar with her work, you will recognize her brilliance in creating theatrical suspense,  provoking imaginations young and old.  This is a chestnut you actually want to see.  

SPIDER'S WEB runs July 12 thru August 14.  

Reviews for DTC's Deferred Action are in!

"The role of Dale was conceived by DTC company member Steven Michael Walters but it might as well have been written for Brusasco, terrific as one of those politicians you can’t stop watching even as the latest train wreck that comes out of his mouth is bigger than the previous one."  - Mark Lowry,  DFW.com and the Star Telegram

"...charismatic and darkly funny..." - Nancy Churnin, Dallas Morning News

"Michael Brusasco plays Jenkins with unabashed abandon, perfectly calibrated smarminess, and enough mangled Spanish pronunciations to send the audience into groans of mirth." - Alexandra Bonifield, American Theatre Magazine

"Counterpoint Michael Brusasco ... as the Republican conservative Dale Jenkins ups the ante while engaging in political rhetorical bantering. While it would have been easy to reduce Jenkins to a caricature, this is not the case ... Brusasco’s Jenkins makes those of us familiar with the nuances of the Bible Belt that a dream can change lives if interpreted as a message from God."  - Theresa Marrero, Theater Jones

DEFERRED ACTION runs at Dallas Theater Center until May 14th.

Deferred Action at DTC is up and running

The world premiere of DTC’s collaboration with Cara Mía Theatre Co., Deferred Action focuses on Javier Mejía, one of the immigrants known as Dreamers who arrived in the USA as an undocumented minor. Now, after years in the States, he finds himself caught in the tangle of existing immigration laws, new presidential policies and the harsh reality of living in the shadows. Javier hopes that temporary administrative mechanisms like Deferred Action will be the answer to his dilemma. But will hope be snatched away? Can politicians who say they are the Dreamers’ friends be trusted? Deferred Action follows the lives, loopholes, and dangers of those who dare to dream. 

I was a last minute addition to the cast, learning one of the lead roles in just under 7 days.  It was an incredible challenge: I am proud of all the work this group has done.  If you are in the Dallas area, come check it out!

Understudying is fun

Went on last week as Marley in the Alley Theatre's Christmas Carol. Never wore so much makeup before. My first body mic as well. Had so much fun, but very thankful to be back in my original track.  

Starting Again

I tried Wordpress.  It was a terrible experience.  How do I even begin to describe the kind of irritation I went through to maintain my old site.  I couldn't do it.  So now I'm over here at Squarespace, hoping that the interface will be easier to use.
