Getting Lively, Lush & Local With: Stephen Benson

Who are you? Stephen Benson

What do you do? Act, direct, teach as often as I can

Where are you from originally? Charlotte, NC

How long have you been working in Boston? Since 1983

What’s your earliest theatre memory? Shakespeare in Florida, meeting the glittered cast of Midsummer Night’s Dream after the show – miraculous

What’s your first theatre memory in Boston? The RSC in Peter Brook’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream – more miraculous

What’s the best meal you’ve ever had before a show? The best one was after a show, Saturday Sunday Monday at London’s National Theatre – all the cooking of garlic and eating of an Italian meal made me ravenous

What’s your favorite rehearsal snack? I’m ashamed to say donuts

Do you eat before you go on stage or do you wait until after your performance to eat? After, man, it must be after

The Boston Theatre Conference is focusing on the lively, lush and local aspects of our theatre community. What do you think? Would you really call Boston lush?
