Name: Jonathan Evans
What is your current project? Aliens Coming: The Musical
Where are you performing your show and why is it a good fit for your production?
The PIT is a very unique venue in that it is primarily an improv theatre. This gives us a lot of ‘play’ room even with a pre-written script. The music and actors can have fun on stage and really enjoy themselves, creating a unique performance every night.
What’s next for you?
I am working on my own musical with my writing partner, very different in tone and far more ‘contemporary’. Other then that – grad school!
What is the name of the last show you saw?
‘The Great Comet.’ It was incredible.
Any advice for your peers?
Do everything! Never pass up on an opportunity no matter how out of your comfort zone it is. You never know where it might lead.
