January: Unrehearsed kicked off the new year with our sixth annual Twelfth Night. We witnessed a resurgence in our audience-size, perhaps thanks to our new venue: the Atlantic Bar & Grill. Stay tuned for more new locales and more new-to-Chicago plays.
JOAN OF ARC
January – February: Abaisses Theatre debuted with the world premier of Alexandra Renieri’s Joan of Arc at RhinoFest. I performed as Bishop Pierre Cauchon, Joan’s judge and chief persecutor.
TWO GENTLEMEN OF VERONA
April: Unrehearsed Shakespeare presented the classic Comedy of two horrible men who experience zero consequences for their horrible behavior. Also, a bit with a dog! Two Gents may well be the first play Shakespeare ever wrote, and we gave it its due on two twosdays.

FIVE ROBOTS WORKING THAT HUSTLE
