BLAKE MONTGOMERY (Director)

Founder and artistic director of The Building Stage, Mr. Montgomery is an actor and director whose approach to theater reflects his training at L'ecole internationale de theatre Jacques Lecoq (as well as its scenographic wing, Le Laboratoire d'Etude du Mouvement), the Dell'Arte School of Physical Theater, the Margolis-Brown Movement Theater Lab and with master clown Ronlin Foreman. Montgomery has conceived and/or directed The Building Stage productions: Hamlet, Dustbowl Gothic, Moby-Dick (originally in 2006 and revised in 2011), Noir, Dracula, The Franklin Expedition, Hansel und Gretel, and Life is a Dream; with Joanie Schultz, he co-directed The Ring Cycle. Montgomery played Halvard Solness in The Building Stage production of The Master Builder. He has appeared as Dr. Prentice in What the Butler Saw at the Court Theater and as Drosselmeyer in The House Theatre of Chicago's The Nutcracker (2010). Previous to founding The Building Stage, he worked with Redmoon Theater with whom he performed in Seagull, Nina, and Salao: The Worst Kind of Unlucky.
