#78: Buntport Theater
|Buntport Theater, plotting their course.|
Brian Colonna, Hannah Duggan, Erik Edborg, Erin Rollman, Samantha Schmitz and (sometimes) Evan Weissman are Buntport Theater, and it's not too far off the mark to think of this sextet of personalities as a single entity -- that's just how they work, slinging ideas back and forth toward a common goal. As a group, they were part of Westword's first class of MasterMinds back in 2005, and they've only gotten better with time, always challenging the boundaries of the stage with a wink and a pragmatic sense of making spaces out of nothing in original works that twist classic themes into something altogether new and witty. And Buntport is generous within the cultural community: After all, collaboration -- and appreciation of the creative work going on all around them -- is what makes this group so special.
