"My very first Shakespeare role was with TTT. Michelle Hensley was brave enough, or maybe a little bit crazy to cast me as The Earl of Kent in King Lear. I was ecstatic. But when l entered that first Women's Prison, l thought, 'How are (These People) going to understand the likes of Shakespeare!' What a revelatory experience that was; and a defining moment in my theatre career. Not only did they understand the story, but they reacted to it viscerally, and in very human ways. Storytelling is meant to be heard by all people, no matter where you fall in the spectrum. What comes from the heart, reaches the heart. With TTT, there are no lights to dim, no elaborate set to stroll about, and no extravagant costumes to enhance an actor's performance, just his/her heart. So, thank you TTT for giving your audiences some of the Very Best performances you can see in the Twin Cities. Bravo!"
