 MosesMogilee presents a dizzying spin on Shakespeare's classic tale of mistaken identity.  With a double tracked, rotating cast - identity is the question, relationships are the confusion and hilarity is the answer - in this 80s set comedy (of errors).    

 


About the Company: MosesMogilee

To provide a creative outlet within a professional setting where the aspiring artist is free to explore the theatre.  In keeping with our name, this freedom of exploration will range from the roots of theatre as a holy ritual, to the very basis of animal exploration of one’s environment.  We will be fearless in all exploration in between these extremes. 

To provide a collaborative environment for the artist to explore his or her full artistic potential, encompassing all aspects of the    theatre.  

To provide audiences with a theatrical experience both entertaining and inspiring.  

 To provide artists an opportunity to reach out to the community.  We believe in sharing both our art and our humanity.

John Bodycombe Antipholus of Ephesus, Jailor

John Bodycombe studied theatre at The Ohio State University before making his way out to the big apple. Most recently he has been seen entertaining teens across the nation as Sancho Panza with National Theatre AE's production of "Las Aventuras de Don Quixote".

Robert J.D. Spaulding Antipholus of Syracuse, Officer

 Robert spent most of his early life playing sports and still considers himself an athlete.  Theatre didn’t happen until much later in life, and by accident.  He auditioned on a whim and to his great surprise was cast in a lead role in college.  Robert graduated from Indiana University with a Major in Theatre in Drama in 2005.  He then moved to NY and studied with Wynn Handman.  He feels very lucky to have worked with Wynn on a ‘One Man Show’ entitled Flight.  Robert’s driving force to stick with it, is his continued support from his family who will hug him even on the rough days.
