“The direction was skilled and precise as one would expect from Paul Reisman” — DCMTA
As a director and playwright, Paul enjoys the other side of the artistic process. Over the years, he has worked on adaptations, new works, world premieres, workshops, readings and more (sometimes wearing both hats at once). Whether working with classical or devised text, comedy or drama, he is at home. Paul also has extensive experience directing students. As a teacher for over fifteen years, his expertise in Stage Combat, Shakespeare, and physical comedy has aided his work with students and professionals alike.
He is also a founding member and Associate Artistic Director of Faction of Fools Theatre Company, DC’s award-winning Commedia dell’Arte Theatre Company.
Current projects include The Merchant of Venice (upcoming, Faction of Fools), Brother Mario (upcoming, Flying V) and two staged readings of his work at the Kennedy Center’s Page to Stage Festival!
