ABOUT BEN PRUSINER
Ben is passionate about plays of heightened language, especially those of Shakespeare and his contemporaries. He aims to bring the language vibrantly to life with staging and designs that are imaginative, metaphorical and theatrical. Ben has directed Broadway regulars as well as community casts and young people of all ages. He believes theatre should be surprising, thrilling, and shamelessly political.
Ben holds an MA in Drama Directing from the Bristol Old Vic Theatre School and an MA in Applied Theatre from the City University of New York. Originally from California, he has worked extensively in New York and in the UK, as well as in India, Italy and Japan. He currently lives in the San Francisco Bay Area.
