Veni, Vedi, Vici

Recently Rorschach added a couple new company members. Both of whom I have had the great pleasure to have worked with over the years. I couldn't be more pleased to welcome Patrick Bussink and Cesar Guadamuz into our happy band of brothers and even happier sisters. It has been a while since we ran one of these but here is another Profile to Discourage. If you want to see more Profiles to Discourage click here and follow the links for each company member.

First up is Cesar. You have seen Cesar in two Rorschach shows, both of which have the longest titles ever, Fair Ladies at a Game of Poem Cards and References to Salvador Dali Make Me Hot. And a short titled play, Rough Magic. (Thank you Shirley for reminding me.)

Cesar will tell you that he auditioned for us a lot before he got his foot in the door. He's right he did audition a lot, sorry I find it hard to argue with fact. But once he was in it wasn't long before we realized how hard it must be to get his hair to look that way. Let's see what he has to say for himself.

1. Place of birth?

A very distant place where theatre and the arts are a natural part of the environment. In many foreign countries, the arts mean history and national identity. a.k.a. San Carlos, Costa Rica.

2. First experience in theater?

I played a campesino in a first-grade show about the history of Costa Rica. I wore a painted mustache. That would be the last time I'd ever wear a mustache, fake or otherwise.

3. Where you went to school?

The University of Virginia, The London School of Economics. Various American elementary schools. A socialist school too.

4. What do you do?

Other than this crazy thing called acting, I do a crazy thing called writing for nothing and I also
do another crazy thing which is work at the Washington Post.

5. What was your first experience with Rorschach?

Fair Ladies at a Game of Constantly Moving Doors.

6. Company member you would most like to be if you were not yourself?

Tim Getman. I want to know what it's like to be 7'5".

7. Some story about working on a Rorschach play that either made you laugh or touched you deeply?

All Rorschach plays make me laugh. All Rorschach plays touch me deeply.

8. Where do you think Rorschach will be in the next ten years?

Rorschach will be having to open a second theatre space to meet the artistic and population demands of their ever-growing and dedicated patrons.

9. What is your favorite Rorschach show that you were not in?

I loved Beard of Avon. I especially enjoyed watching Grady as the Avon Lady.

10. Scott McCormick harmless adolescent or world conquering super villain?

Wit-generating manchild boy genius.

There is nothing wrong with stalking ceasar...that short named show was incredible...not that I am biased.
