"Make Milwaukee": The Milwaukee Rep | Brian Vaughn and Torrey Hanson
Listen: When I see a stage performance, whether it's music or dance or theater, by the end of the show I usually feel like I have a connection with the performers. It's something like a personal connection. So when it's a theater performance, who am I feeling a connection with? Is it the actor or the character?
In these pieces, we get a little window into the lives of the actors behind the characters, and in this case you may have seen these performers as many different characters throughout the years. A few weeks back, I went down to the wonderful Repertory Theater ( you can hear the tour we did last year here) and chatted with a few of their resident actors. Below is the first of two installments.
First, we meet Resident Actor Brian Vaughn. In this first piece, Brian answers the intentionally vague question "What's it like to be an actor in Milwaukee?"
