Robin Barlow This aging economist is about to retire from U-M's School of Public Health, but he does not intend to retire from MCT. As for Brave New World Revisited, Revisited, Robin attended the same Oxford college as Aldous Huxley, and thus believes that he has an advantage in understanding the Huxley personality.

She was also named as Best Supporting Actress by the Ann Arbor Nervs for her work in The Sentimental Father.

James Ingagiola James has lived in Ann Arbor for ten years. He has been looking for love in all the wrong places and has ended up doing theatre as an outlet for his frustrations.

Joshua Thorin Messer joshua Messer is a recent graduate from EMU, where he learned way too much literary theory. Mr. Messer is a newcomer to the Ann Arbor Civic Theatre; however, he is not an alien, nor does he represent any alien interest of any kind. Really. We promise.

Offstage, Lyndsay enjoys singing, and playing the flute, guitar, and piano. Mary Nesovski Mary is making her MCT debut with Brave New world Revisited, Revisited. IfMary looks a bit familiar, it's probably because you've seen her aboard the Michigan Star Clipper Dinner Train, performing Murder Mysteries. (She was the cheesy one with the annoying voice.)

Torey may be the only Properties Acquisition Expert in AACT's history who does not yet possess a driver's license. Even though AACT regulars know how and where to get a driver's license, Torey doesn't need one to do her jolr-she is all business on that telephone! David Wright An AACT veteran, David has stage managed many shows for AACT, and those who have worked with him know what a wonderful and valuable contribution he makes to every show he works on.
