The Actors Theater of NYC is proud to bring you exclusive conversations with company members and special guests. Our performers will present classic and contemporary material, but also invite you to hear their stories and tell your own. Join us as we share some of our favorite works and memories, and answer any questions you may have.

We are introducing ensemble company member, Mark Ryan Anderson, who will be performing Shakespeare.

MARK RYAN ANDERSON is a critically acclaimed actor, singer, writer and space enthusiast. He resides in New York City.

He was born in rural Southern Bethalto, Illinois, just east of St. Louis, where he was raised by his mother and stepfather. For most of his childhood he was very imaginative, dreaming grand visions, drawing on all surfaces, and stretching his thumbs for many hours at his video game consoles. With his parents' direction, he also participated in every sport and extracurricular activity possible, swinging at baseballs and tennis balls, running track, wrestling, banging on his drum kit, and playing saxophone, guitar, piano, and harmonica...when he wasn't singing along to the radio, of course.

He graduated from Western Illinois University with a B.F.A. in Musical Theatre (with Honors), and currently trains with MN Acting Studio in Manhattan.

The Actors Theater of NYC is a multidisciplinary acting company, consisting of writers, actors, and artists, who develop and produce original works in various media formats. We are excited to bring live theater performance to the VR world.
