Jason Guy Biography

Jason has suffered terribly in over 50 professional productions ranging from Shakespeare to tap dancing across Europe, Korea, and 49 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 (River City Rep), lost a finger in The 39 Steps (Arkansas Rep), and finally weathered the greatest abuse known to man - rehearsal - 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.

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.

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.

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.

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?
