Kyle McGruther in Measure for Measure
Guest Lecturer: Kyle McGruther
Topic: The Actor Asks His Character:
What's the Story Behind the Story?
Take on the roles of 2 Shakespearean dukes? Check.
Tour with ShakespeareAlive!? Check.
Speak to Pomona Valley Shakespeare Club? Check.
Fresh from this year’s “engaging and believable” portrayal of Duke Vincentio in the Long Beach Shakespeare Company’s production of Measure for Measure, Kyle McGruther will share his insights on developing a backstory for his character.
How much help does he receive from the director? How do his perceptions influence his interactions with other cast members?
A stage, screen, and TV actor, McGruther grew up in a military family, living in four continents and learning Japanese, French, and Italian. His acting background includes a B.A. in music as well as training in role playing, stage combat, clowning, and horseback riding.
Oh, and that other duke? Orsino in Twelfth Night with Theatre Prometheus.
Free and open to the public.
