TWELFTH NIGHT

 by William Shakespeare

PlayMakers Repertory Company

Directed by Jerry Ruiz 

 

 

"The play’s oft-forgotten Antonio garners much attention via Tristan Parks’ Sammy Davis, Jr.-style characterization. It is one of this production’s most unexpected and captivating performances."

Triangle Arts & Entertainment from Dustin K. Britt

"Tristan Parks gamely renders Antonio, Sebastian’s rescuer, as a casino gangster out of a Rat Pack movie."

SHERWOOD: THE ADVENTURES OF ROBIN HOOD

   by Ken Ludwig 

    PlayMakers Repertory Company

                     Directed by Jessie Austrian                                                   

 "Tristan Parks is also superbly fun to watch as the Sheriff of Nottingham.       He even adds a  touch of confliction 

(and sass!) to the role, making the

               character surprisingly                likeable."
