She had been a very athletic kid, but had developed severe joint pain and stiffness, and after many tests they found that her kidneys were failing to clear calcium from her system and it was building up. More >

Stories Under the Skin: Juan Ortiz
Tuesday, January 26, 2016

Seldom is anyone prepared for tragedy and the naivety and arrogance of youth gives us the bravado to proceed forward without fully understanding our own mortality. I would have never imagined that at the age of eighteen that I’d be thrust headfirst into tragedy. For reasons still unknown to me, I was the victim of a violent crime. I was rushed to the hospital with major blood loss and a collapsed lung.   More >

Stories Under the Skin: Kinard Alston

It was a typical end of the summer day, back in September 2002. More than likely, I had started my morning with a 5 mile run. I was feeling good and taking good care of myself and my family that now included a beautiful 2 year old little girl.  Morning became early afternoon and I found myself feeling extremely tired to the point that I could not ignore it. Reluctantly, I decided to go home. There, I slept for 12 hours straight and I was still tired. More >

Bruce Nelson is perhaps one of the most recognizable faces of Everyman. A Resident Company Member since 2004, Bruce has become well known to Everyman audiences for his ability to transform into incredibly complex and layered characters time and time again.

25 Years of Everyman: A Turning Point, 2000 to 2005
Monday, January 11, 2016

Two of Everyman’s longest-standing production team members are individuals that audiences would probably not recognize. While they are not physically on the stage every night, their work is certainly seen by everyone.

Bill Jamieson is the theatre’s Technical Director, responsible for executing all designs for each production. And Mandy Hall is the theatre’s Resident Stage Manager. If you look behind you into the control booth of the theatre, you will likely see Mandy calling the sound, light and actor cues to execute the show seamlessly in front of you. I recently sat down with Bill and Mandy to talk about some of their most formative memories from 2001 to 2005.  More >

25 Years of Everyman: Into the 21st Century, 1995 to 2000
Monday, January 11, 2016

Jeannie Howe is a familiar face to many throughout Baltimore’s artistic and cultural communities. Today she serves as the Executive Director of the Greater Baltimore Cultural Alliance (GBCA). However, in the mid-1990s, Jeannie was one of Everyman’s first Board members (and later, President of the Board). A constant advocate for Everyman and the arts community as a whole, Jeannie was vital to the development of the theatre company. I recently met with Jeannie to reminisce about some of the most formative moments from 1995 to 2000. More >
