Jason Guy BIO

Jason has suffered terribly in over 75 professional productions ranging from Shakespeare to tap dancing across Europe, Korea, and all 50 of the United States. He has been poisoned (Hamlet) and beaten (Malvolio) with the National Shakespeare Co.; he was betrayed (Brutus) and beheaded (Buckingham) at the American Shakespeare Center; and he was flogged, twice, (as both Dromios) for the Hamptons Shakespeare Festival. Not content with just two roles, Jason played half the characters in "Turn of the Screw" at Tri-State (in which he was, coincidentally, smothered to death). Seeking solace in living playwrights Jason was vomited on in "God of Carnage" (Cape May Stage), lost a finger in "The 39 Steps" (Arkansas Rep), and finally weathered the greatest abuse known to man - Actors - as Lloyd in "Noises Off" (Tent Theatre). In a blissfully welcome turn of events, he beat, pummeled, and tortured someone else in the Flea Theater's long-running "Back of the Throat", Directed by Jim Simpson. Turning to musicals in hopes of lighter fare, he was fired daily ("42nd Street"), punched repeatedly ("West Side Story"), and soaked nightly (as Don Lockwood in "Singin' in the Rain"). He was born in Michigan, grew up in Maine, and lives in New York.

Review: THE TEMPEST at The Colonial Theatre

Shakespeare, late in his career, braided many of his preoccupations—love, the machinations of court, magic, low comedy, visual spectacle, theatre itself—into what may be his culminant work, 'The Tempest.' The Colonial Theatre production in Wilcox Park, Westerly, ticks all these boxes, offering a spectacular evening that will surprise and delight even long-time fans of the Bard's last solo play.

World Premiere of Michael Whistler's CASSE NOISETTE Opens This Week at Bridge Street Theatre

When Michael Whistler's "Casse Noisette (A Fairy Ballet)" opens at Catskill's intimate Bridge Street Theatre this Thursday, November 8th, it will celebrate a LOT of firsts: It will mark the first full production the play has ever received. Four members of its five-person cast will be making their Bridge Street Theatre debuts. Four of the five actors will be the first-ever residents of the theatre's brand-new upstairs artist housing. And this will be the first time the theatre has ever used a front curtain, opening and closing to reveal new wonders at each turn in the plot.

A Spectacular World Premiere Closes Out The 2018 Season At Bridge Street Theatre

Catskill's intimate Bridge Street Theatre will close out its 2018 Subscription Season with a major coup: the world premiere of Philadelphia-based playwright Michael Whistler's brilliant, funny, and touching "Casse Noisette" (The Nutcracker). The play, described by its author as being about "a very quiet man and some very loud music", masterfully interweaves the life of Russian composer Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky with that of a deeply-closeted modern-day American high school teacher obsessed with Tchaikovsky's music. Sugar Plum Fairies and phone sex workers collide, and five actors play eleven different roles in two completely different time periods, in this tale about discovering the strength to be true to one's self, whatever the cost.

Bridge Street World Premiere Called 'An Undiluted Triumph!'

When Bridge Street Theatre co-founders John Sowle and Steven Patterson decided to take a chance on a new work by playwright Kieron Barry, it turned out to be a very wise decision. The Official Adventures of Kieron and Jade, Barry's autobiographical comedy about a long-term relationship that ends unexpectedly, has proven to be a real hit with audiences.

Photo Flash: Bridge Street Theatre's THE OFFICIAL ADVENTURES OF KIERON AND JADE Receives Rave Reviews

A playwright called (oddly enough) Kieron becomes totally obsessed with writing a play about the collapse of his relationship with a singer called Jade. But just how honest can he make it?

Bridge Street Theatre Presents THE OFFICIAL ADVENTURES OF KIERON AND JADE

The world premiere of Kieron Barry's play, The Official Adventures of Kieron and Jade takes place on Thursday, April 20th at The Bridge Street Theatre, 44 W. Bridge Street, Catskill.  Barry was showcased locally in the enormously successful 2012 production of Tomorrow in the Battle at Stageworks/Hudson.  It was hailed by the Albany Times Union as "one of the most remarkable pieces of theatre in recent memory."

When playwright Kieron Barry and his longtime girlfriend broke up, he was stunned.  It took him a long time to process the 'why' and the 'what did I do wrong'.  To try and sort it out, he wrote.
