The Artist, contracted to play a role that hits a little too close to home, takes us into the mind of the playwright

Joshua Tewell (The Artist) performs with ERP in his first major role, having worked with them earlier this year in A Midsummer Night’s Cabaret. Having moved to Philly at the beginning of 2016, Josh had previously worked with the local Enchantment Theatre Company for several years, in two national tours and a local tour. Other Philly credits include last year’s PIFA (“The Kinetic Tree” at the Kimmel Center), the Duende Cycle (“Bodas de Sangre/I Only Came to Use the Phone”), and Terror Behind the Walls at Eastern State Penitentiary. Catch him later this October as Van Helsing in “Dracula” at the Laurel Hill Cemetery!
