Renegade Theater Company’s regional premiere of SEMINAR is just 1 day away! Opening night features a post-show party with $2 Bent Paddle Beers, delicious food from the Zeitgeist Arts Cafe and a chance to meet and mingle with cast and crew (thanks to season sponsor Bent Paddle, opening night sponsor Duluth Barrel Works and show sponsor Whole Foods Co-op for the party and good times)!
To get you ready for this funny, fierce and sexy dive into the cut-throat, violent and vulgar world of fiction writers, we’re spending a little blog time introducing you to our stellar cast and crew, and giving you a peek into what makes them tick, literature-wise.

Who is your favorite character in literature?
Satan would be my favorite literary character, there are so many different ways to portray that figure and so many authors have done interesting or creative interpretations that it has forever shaped life and ideas for generations of people. John Milton in Paradise Lost, Dante Alighieri in The Divine Comedy, and Mark Twain in The Mysterious Stranger, have a few of my favorite versions of this character.
Who is your favorite author?
Eric Van Lustbader, he is so flexible in his styles and genres, how he can create a world and make every part of it come alive and have you feel it to your very essence. He is one of the few authors that I can have a visceral reaction to their work, from touching and heartfelt to actual terror of a killer on the street.
