3 Questions for: Nic Marrone

Nic Marrone hails from Georgia where he attended GCSU in Milledgeville, GA (a.k.a. the town where Honey Boo Boo is living). He's currently working towards his MFA at the New School for Drama. This is his first production with Wide Eyed and his second time working with playwright / friend Dan Kitrosser. Y'all enjoy the show! "We all become important when we realize our goal // Should be to figure out our role within the context of the whole // And yeah, rock and roll is fun but if you ever hear someone // Say you are huge look at the moon, look at the stars, look at the sun // Look at the ocean and the desert and the mountains and the sky // And say I am just a speck of dust inside a giant's eye." - Kimya Dawson 
  • You’ll be performing in our upcoming staged reading of Dead Special Crabs as part of our “Winks” series. As this is your first time working with Wide Eyed, we’d like to get to know you a little better. Could you tell us a little bit about your last project? 
Well, I moved to New York to earn my MFA at the New School for Drama. With the 3-5 minutes of free time I get each week, I haven’t been able to do too much outside of school, but within the program, I’ve been all over the place. I actually just worked on a fantastic musical, Homos! As the World is Ending! also written by Dan Kitrosser. And through school, I get the rare opportunity to take on incredible roles that I’d never be cast in, like Martha Dobie in The Children’s Hour
  • When did you know that you wanted to be an actor? How did you get started? 
I don’t know if I ever had that moment where I knew I wanted to be an actor, and to be honest I’ve realized that the more I delve into my theatrical studies, the more my directing bug awakens. However, if I get the chance to play awesome roles, I’m sure as hell not going to turn them down! And as far as getting started - I played the leading role of The Owl in the Church Street Elementary School’s spectacle production of Who, Who, Who Lost a Shoe? 
  • Are you working on any additional projects at the moment? Care to share with us? 
One huge project I need to get done (ASAP) is new headshots…Maybe I should get cracking on a website, too…definitely. Other than that, I’m working towards getting an awesome internship this summer. This May, I’ll be in a production of As You Like It at the New School for Drama, and I’ll also be working on tons of new plays written by the unfairly talented Sam Byron, Molly Haas-Hooven, Matt Herzfeld, and of course Dan Kitrosser!
