Meet the director of “Much ado about Nothing”, Marshall B Garrett!
Marshall B Garrett is a Maryland-based director making his Indiana debut. Marshall has directed in Washington, DC (Capital Fringe Festival), Maryland (Milburn Stone Theatre, Mobtown Players, Susquehanna Shakespeare Ensemble), Virginia (Sweet Wag Shakespeare, Mary Baldwin College, American Shakespeare Center Theatre Camp), Ohio (Rubber City Shakespeare Company), Nebraska (College of Saint Mary), and Illinois (Illinois Wesleyan University).
Marshall is the founding director of the Susquehanna Shakespeare Ensemble, a new company based in northeastern Maryland, which will be presenting our first production in May. SSE is an original practices plus company, strongly influenced by OP work but adhering more to Shakespeare’s rehearsal conditions than performance aesthetics.
Along with his directorial work, Marshall is a wandering professor and scholar, having taught at Cecil College, the College of Saint Mary, and Mary Baldwin University.
After Hoosier, Marshall heads back to Staunton, VA, to direct The Knight of the Burning Pestle, and Baltimore for The Tempest. If SSE’s first production goes well, we’ll also be producing our second show then.
Marshall lives with his infinitely patient wife, Tess, their two infinitely impatient cats, and their inscrutably patient turtle.
