Morgan Rusler ’86

Morgan Rusler ’86 writes, “In May I performed in the Troubadour Theater Company’s Julius Weezer at the El Portal Theater [North Hollywood, CA] alongside Beth Kennedy ’91, who also produced the show. The LA Times had some nice words about it, writing, ‘tragedy and comedy zanily commingle when Robinson’s Caesar heads to a Senate session dressed in a wrap-around cloak-sweater-chenille bedspread. He soon finds himself encircled by dagger-armed conspirators, who pull red bungee cords from the cloak—his spouting wounds—while everyone sings Weezer’s Undone—The Sweater Song. That, in a nutshell, is the Troubies.’”
