White Rabbit and others In Lookingglass Alice

  • Hometown: Chicago, although I was born in Toronto and lived in Fort Worth, Texas, for 11 years
  • Training: BFA degree in Acting from The Theatre School at DePaul University
  • Meet the Cast: Kevin DouglasWhat was the role that changed your life? In college, I was the lead in a play called La Bete, by David Hirson. I had to learn a 13-page monologue that started the show. It was my first lead role and the biggest part I had ever had. That was the hardest thing I had ever done … well, until Lookingglass Alice.
  • Why are you an actor? Because of all of the jobs I have had, this is the one I truly love. Acting has provided me with other opportunities like: sketch comedy, teaching, playwriting, on-camera work, voice-over … it’s the job that keeps on giving.
  • What would you be doing for a career if you weren’t an actor? I would write music. I do sketch comedy and have written a few sketch-comedy shows. In every show I have written there have been original songs. I have written a play and it has three songs in it … I love music. 
  • Ideal scene partner: Eddie Murphy, because he was the first actor who made me go, “Wow, I wanna do that.” Watch his older stuff and you will see why.
  • Why does Lookingglass Alice matter? Because we live in a world where we rush to get to the next thing and do the next thing. This play asks you to take your time and enjoy every moment.
  • What do you hope the audience gets out of it? They should leave remembering that life is short. Play, have fun and enjoy every single moment, especially with loved ones.
  • Finish this sentence: “All I want is … ” for people to be nice to each other.
