Counting Actors: June 2011

A new feature, to be published monthly, between the first and the fifth.

In June, I saw 4 shows that fit within the criteria described here. They were:

  • Chekhov Lizardbrain, Z Space/Pig Iron Theater
  • Down a Little Dirt Road, Just Theater
  • Metamorphosis, Aurora
  • Imaginary Love, Hapgood

Here are the stats:

  • 2 female directors, 2 male directors
  • 3 male writers, 2 female writers (Metamorphosis had 2 writers credited, Chekhov Lizardbrain was company devised, but credited a male with ‘text’, so I counted him as the writer)
  • 17 total actors
  • 11 men, 6 women
  • 8 Equity actors, 9 Non-equity actors
  • 7 Equity men, 1 Equity woman
  • 13 local actors, 4 non-local actors

I’ll be counting actors again in July.  If you’d like to help me count, all info on how to do that is here.
