DAY 62: Actor Ruy Iskandar
Ruy JUST finished up a phenomenal run of the first play in this year's Mentor Project, THE HUNTERS... which garners a big CHERRY KUDOS for the entire company and crew!! Before that he had just finished up a run of MACBETH at Lincoln Center Theater, performing alongside ETHAN HAWKE... and before THAT he had finished up in THE DANCE AND THE RAILROAD by David Henry Hwang at Signature Theatre Company (where his newest, KUNG FU, is playing to raves... also, David HH is Mentor to Lina Patel in our third MP offering this year, but more about THAT in a couple of weeks...) This classically trained actor has a thing for Shakespeare, with five of the Bard's pieces, including MEASURE FOR MEASURE at The Public Theater and HAMLET at NYU Tisch School of the Arts under his belt... and speaking of more Shakespeare, our second MP piece is an innovative performance of his Sonnets paired with tap dancing -- marrying the natural rhythms together for an explosive experience you won't want to miss! Check out below as Ruy gives up the love for the crew and staff - sentiments we agree with completely.
