BWW Feature: ALLEY THEATER ARTS CARAVAN at The Alley Theater Photo BWW Feature: ALLEY THEATER ARTS CARAVAN at The Alley Theater
by Keith Waits - Aug 7, 2017

I have been active in the Louisville theater arena for right at twenty years, having gotten started in the chorus of a musical in Anchorage way back in 1997. Since then I've played dream roles and bit parts in more shows than I can count and I've been in four feature films. As a director, I've been able to put my personal stamp on both classic and lesser known plays. I've developed strong relationships with more local theater companies than I can name, served on the board of directors for three of them, and have been writing theater reviews for over ten years (including for Arts-Louisville.com). I've even recently become part of a sketch comedy group. All of this with no special training, no theater degree, and no real qualifications beyond a love of the stage.
