Losing weight for the role of Prior in ANGELS IN AMERICA who’s living with AIDS in 1985. When I was cast months ago, I very consciously made the decision to help tell our difficult, wonderful, life-affirming story with not only my voice, my movements, and my acting, but also my body. Don’t worry, friends: I’m being very healthy in my process! Thank you for the love. #AngelsInAmerica #aids #theatre #theater #acting #sacrifice #craft #repstl
When I was a 20 years old, a 40 year old mentor of mine put a copy of ANGELS IN AMERICA Parts 1 & 2 in my hands and said, “One day you’ll be in this.” I knew I was reading a work of genius. A masterpiece of the American Theatre. These plays won the Pulitzer Prize and every Tony Award under the sun. But be IN them? Never. I was a musical theatre chorus boy working in summer stock. I would never be in a play this important. I would never be old enough. Smart enough. A good enough actor. Never be brave enough to face its themes much less portray them truthfully. I would never be fierce enough, fabulous enough, flamboyant enough, weird enough. Awesome enough. 21 years later, I have been cast in ANGELS IN AMERICA Parts 1 & 2 at The Repertory Theatre of St. Louis, one of the best regional theatres in the country. I am playing Prior Walter, a gay New Yorker living with AIDS in 1985 - one of the scariest times to be alive in recent history. And here I am: old enough, smart enough, GOOD ENOUGH. Living in my power and tapping into everything in me that is unapologetically and openly gay, grounded, fierce, funny, flamboyant, and fabulous, sure, but also, intelligent, tough, wonderful, nasty, strong, gross... and brave. The Great Work Begins . . . Thank you, @peve419 for putting these great works in this chorus boy’s (jazz) hands. 👋🏼📖👋🏼 #AngelsInAmerica #priorwalter #thegreatworkbegins #milleniumapproaches #perestroika #repstl #repertorytheatreofstlouis

Hana Sharif's tour of St. Louis wouldn't be complete without a visit to one of our city's hottest arts districts! Our friends at @foxtheatrestl were kind enough to roll out the welcome mat for Hana. That's one more item checked off Hana's St. Louis To-Do List: ✅ "See my name in lights in Grand Center." We've been reading your suggestions for future St. Louis visits and love what we're seeing! Keep the ideas coming. . . . 📸: @patricklanhamphoto @grandcenterartsdistrict #stl #stltodolist #theatre #viptreatment
You'd better believe Hana had the @citymuseum on her St. Louis To-Do List! ✅ "Ride the most iconic slide west of the Mississippi." That's two St. Louis landmarks visited for our incoming artistic director. Where should we take her next? . . . #stltodolist #stl #slidingintotheweek #ontour #citymuseum
With Hana Sharif taking over as our artistic director in less than a month, we decided it was time to show her all the amazing things that St. Louis has to offer. This week, we started checking items off of Hana's St. Louis To-Do List. Item number one: ✅ "Meet the scene-stealing wildlife at the @stlzoo." Where should Hana visit next, STL experts? Your feedback will help us determine her future destinations! . . . #stl #wildlife #stltodolist #robbiethesealion #animalsalways #stlzoo
This June, The Rep welcomes an all-new artistic leadership team. We announced Hana Sharif’s appointment as our next artistic director in 2018, and earlier this week we did the same for our new associate artistic director: Amelia Acosta Powell. We cannot wait to start working alongside these two remarkable leaders as we begin our theatre’s next act! . . . 📸: @cheshiredave and @jennygrahamphotography #stl #theatre #leadership
Sometimes you really do get the perfect ending: Steve Woolf with the cast and director of THE PLAY THAT GOES WRONG after the show’s final bows. We think it’s fitting to close Steve’s 33-season run as our artistic director with a show that generated so much happiness and laughter. This is going to go down in the history books as a special, special production to cap off a marvelous season. Hats off to all involved! . . . #repgoeswrong #stl #theatre #stevewoolf #goodbyefornow
