Some explanation is in order! Gabe (English major, Class of 2014) starred in a production of a play called The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (Abridged) at the Shorecrest Performing Arts Center in Shorecrest, WA last weekend, not all of the Bard’s plays. Gabe describes The Complete Works as follows: “three guys, one dead playwright, and 37 plays, all in under two hours.”
Quite the feat, and one in keeping with Gabe’s work as a young actor and much more; there’s nothing abridged about his aspirations. “Briefly,” says Gabe, no doubt intending the irony, “I’m pursuing performance in music, circus arts, and acting, with a day (night) job at Teatro Zinzanni,” a Seattle dinner theatre along the lines of Cirque du Soleil. “It’s a wild ride,” he concludes.
Hang on tight, Gabe, and best of luck with your career.
