Brandon Carter's passion is Shakespeare. His mission is to “Break the Legacy” of what Shakespeare roles look and sound like, especially at an epicenter of culture surrounding Shakespeare and his early modern contemporaries.
He is the Artistic Director of the American Shakespeare Center. Located in the Shenandoah Valley, Virginia’s premiere classical theatre is at once intimate in scale and epic in imagination— creating vital, sophisticated, and accessible seasons built around a company of versatile actors performing in repertory all year round. The Center illuminates the plays of Shakespeare and his contemporaries, classic and new, refreshing the individual, fostering civil discourse, and creating community in the Blackfriars Playhouse and beyond.
Brandon, who earned his MFA in acting from Penn State in 2014, joined The People of Penn State for an in-depth conversation on his career journey to the Shakespeare Center, using his role as an avenue for activism, and more.
