ABOUT THE DIRECTOR – Jack Tamburri is a director, writer, performer, and musician who recently received his MFA in Directing from the Yale School of Drama.
He is a graduate of the University of Chicago (AB ’05 English Language and Literature) and a member of the Chicago-based new works theater company, the Plagiarists. With the Plagiarists, Jack wrote, produced, and performed in the annual American Stage Sessions series as well as the Internet radio comedy series The Brandy Winefingers Mysteries, and directed The Wreck of the Medusa, a new play based on the infamous shipwreck and the painting it inspired. In Chicago Jack also worked with the Neo-Futurists, the Hypocrites, the House Theatre of Chicago, American Theater Co, Mary-Arrchie Theatre Co, and the Court Theatre, among others. Directing highlights include Chuck Mee’s bobrauschenbergamerica, Mac Wellman’s Seven Blowjobs, and Powerless: Issues 1-3 (a new piece of comic book theater featuring projection design by a national roster of illustrators).
At Yale, Jack directed productions of Shakespeare’s The Tempest and Titus Andronicus as well as Young Jean Lee’s Church (co-director/co-producer), Mac Wellman’s Dracula, and new plays by MFA-candidate playwrights Justin Taylor, MJ Kaufman, and Amelia Roper. His thesis production was Iphigenia Among the Stars, a science-fiction adaptation of Euripides’s Iphigenia Among the Taurians and Iphigenia At Aulis. Jack’s most recent productions include House Beast by Justin Taylor, part of the Carlotta Festival of New Plays, and a production for the Philadelphia FringeArts Festival with MJ Kaufman.
