Who's who in Tennessee theater? Sometimes, without a program in your hand, it's difficult to know who's playing whom-hence, our newest feature: Hey, Jef, Here's My Headshot...featuring some of the Volunteer State's best-known-or soon-to-be-known all over the freakin' world-thespians. And have you ever wondered who the amazing photographers are who make them look so damn good? We're gonna tell ya…

Today's actor/subject/model is the handsome, talented and extremely busy Ryan Bowie, who regularly puts his talents on display at Clarksville's Roxy Regional Theatre, where he also serves as director of fundraising and development. 

Ryan is playing the role of George (a deadringer for Boy George of Culture Club fame) in the Roxy's production of The Wedding Singer through Saturday night; so get your ass in gear and go see him before it's too late (the show's terrific)!

Some of his most recent credits at The Roxy…

George, The Wedding Singer

Cruella DeVille, Disney's 101 Dalmatian the Musical, Jr.

Ernst, Spring Awakening

Coming up, Ryan will be performing with his fellow company artists in Defying Gravity: The Music of Stephen Schwartz. For details, go to the website at www.RoxyRegionalTheatre.org.
