Gil Mitchell

Production Intern

Dr. Faustus, Session 2

Favorite Shakespeare Play:

Richard III

Shakespeare Character that best describes me:

Benvolio (Romeo & Juliet) [Editor’s note: More accurately, the Duke of Suffolk from Henry VI, Parts 1 & 2]

Favorite Shakespeare quote:

“That’s good; ‘mobled queen’ is good.” – Polonius, Hamlet

Favorite Play that isn’t by Shakespeare:

The Importance of Being Earnest by Oscar Wilde

All-time favorite ASC Moment:

In the 2017 Summer/Fall production if Much Ado about Nothing, when Claudio took off his mask to “reveal” himself after it was obviously him and an audience member gasped ridiculously. I died of laughter. That was the moment I was convinced that plays are better than movies.
