Mac-Haydn Theatre Debut
Mikel Hunter 1973–1982 NY/NJ community, dinner and regional theatre stand outs include: OLIVER!, DAMN YANKEES, GYPSY, MAME, GUYS AND DOLLS, HELLO DOLLY!, THE ROBBER BRIDEGROOM, CABARET, GEORGE M!, APPLAUSE, and PIPPIN. An early mentorship from Maestro Constantine Kitsopoulos and Ithaca College BFA led to the NYC theatre scene of the 1980s. Peter in THE FLOWER GIRL (written/ directed by Leonard Malfi), A founding member of Charles Busch’s Theatre-in-Limbo Co., VAMPIRE LESBIANS OF SODOM, and PSYCHO BEACH PARTY to name a few. Hyde in HOLLYWOOD (by Peter Parnell, directed by Gerry Gutierrez). The American Place Theatre and PBS American Show Time. Having first played the role of Lewis in PIPPIN at the age of seventeen it is a fantastic honor some forty years later to be here at the Mac-Haydn for the re-entry of myself into theatre, and live theatre in general—it’s great to be back!
