Guest Blogger of the Week: Mac Rogers


We would like to thank Desiree Burch for being such a great guest blogger last week. She brings a unique and titillating perspective to creating performance art.

We are very happy to announce next week's guest blogger, Mac Rogers.

Mac Rogers is a playwright and a performer based in Brooklyn. He has been making Off-Off-Broadway theater since he assistant-directed a production of CYMBELINE at the Looking Glass Theater in 1997. With his company Gideon Productions (co-founded with Sean Williams and Jordana Williams), Mac wrote and produced the plays VIRAL (winner of Outstanding Play at the New York International Fringe Festival), HAIL SATAN (winner of Outstanding Playwriting at FringeNYC), THE LUCRETIA JONES MYSTERIES, THE SECOND STRING, and DIRTY JUANITA. Mac's play UNIVERSAL ROBOTS, co-produced by Manhattantheatresource and Gideon, won the New York Independent Theater Bloggers Award for Best Off-Off-Broadway Play and earned four nominations for IT Awards in 2009. Mac regularly collaborates with two independent theater companies enjoying ten-year anniversaries this year, Nosedive Productions and Manhattantheatresource. As an actor, Mac's favorite role to date has been the titular lead in Nosedive's THE ADVENTURES OF NERVOUS-BOY by James Comtois, for which he earned a nomination from the IT Awards. Mac lives with his fiance Sandy in a converted auto-body shop in Brooklyn, not far from the Brick Theater and the Vampire Cowboys Battle Ranch.
