Nat Cassidy

Nat Cassidy is an award-winning playwright, actor, and musician, whose acclaimed blend of humor and horror has sold out houses and thrilled audiences throughout the country. In New York, his plays have been nominated for a combined total of 17 NY Innovative Theatre Awards (including three times for Outstanding Full-Length Play). He was a participant in Primary Stages' ESPADrills where his play ANY DAY NOW received an off-Broadway workshop directed by Tony-nominee Moritz von Stuelpnagel. Nat was commissioned by the Kennedy Center to write the libretto for a world premiere opera, which the Washington Times praised as, "remarkable," "haunting," "tight [and] compelling." Academy Award-nominated screenwriter Joan Tewksbury (Robert Altman's NASHVILLE) said of Nat's work, "Nat Cassidy has a smart, loud voice, pierced with black humor. Acutely aware, he can scare you to death, hurt your heart, but keep you laughing. A fresh new voice who has arrived right on time." Nat has written plays and narrative music about ghosts, zombies, demonic possession, Lovecraftian Elder Gods, mutants, cannibals, serial killers, space marauders, Elizabethan poets, insane Roman emperors, and antebellum American politicians, and he's always on the lookout for new ways the make the theatre a more viscerally thrilling place to be.
