He has worked at many regional theaters across the country. At the Hudson Valley Shakespeare Festival, Kurt has acted and directed for 17 seasons. Recently at HVSF, he played the “Poet” in the one-man show, An Iliad. Other credits there include “Iago” in Othello, “Petruchio” in Shrew, and title roles in Macbeth and Tartuffe. On Broadway he appeared in Julius Caesar with Denzel Washington. Some of his favorites have been How I Learned to Drive at Arena Stage; Antony and Cleopatra, Measure for Measure, at The Shakespeare Theatre; Henry IV, Dividing the Estate, The Secret Rapture at Dallas Theater Center; Inherit the Wind and To Kill a Mockingbird at Arts Center of Coastal Carolina.
