DK 2014-15

I’ve known and worked with David King in creating theatre for the live stage since 2005. David brings great focus and [thorough] preparation to everything he does, and is disciplined and dependable. He is a gifted actor with unique concentration and presence, and I’ve cast him repeatedly over the six years I’ve known him in an extremely wide variety of roles. In addition, he is independent-minded and has already branched out into producing and directing projects with his own company, thereby displaying the kind of vision and motivation that brings new ideas and jobs to the theatre industry. David has my highest regard both as an artist and a human being.
