T. Michael Vest is a playwright/lyricist born in Colombia and raised in the United States. Trained as an actor and musician at Taylor University, he began his career as a writer while studying musical theatre at Goldsmiths, University of London. His musicals include Dream, Pandora, ?? Goodbye, and Who Are You? He is also a founding member of the Divergent Theatre Collective. Now hailing from New Jersey, he writes about theater and occasionally indulges his other two favorite pastimes: long walks and hot wings.
Wendy McLeod's good-natured little two-hander Things Being What They Are is now on at Dreamcatcher Repertory Theatre, the professional theater in residence at Oakes Center in Summit, NJ. The show, comfortably directed by Producing Artistic Director Laura Ekstrand, runs weekends through May 7th. When it soars, it soars, and when it meanders, it maintains a pleasant, if tame, personality.
