Caught in the Act

VIDEO: Company One Artistic Director Shawn LaCount

By Jared Bowen

Company One Artistic Director and co-founder Shawn LaCount is reliable on two counts. He is always well capped in what's become his trademark hats and his theater company will always take audiences in fresh and uncharted directions.  As a director this summer, he turned the Roberts Studio at the BCA into a real wrestling ring for his intensely sharp "The Elaborate Entrance of Chad Deity."  

Later this month he directs the regional premiere of "Bengal Tiger at the Baghdad Zoo," which starred Robin Williams on Broadway last year.  Here he's Caught in the Act with Jared Bowen talking about what propels him…including "Little Shop of Horrors."
