Ryan Darby is excited to be making a return to directing with Nick Dear’s Frankenstein. This will be her directing debut at Cutting Edge Theatre and she would like to thank Brian and Richard for the opportunity to present this show with such an incredible cast. Ryan has an extensive dance background spanning 22 years and received her acting/directing education at the University of Southern Mississippi. She is a New Orleans implant and is pursuing a career in film and television. Over the last few years, you’ve seen her on the Cutting Edge Stage as Shelby (Steel Magnolias), Catherine Simms (The Foreigner), Letty Etheridge (Heartbreak Henry *Regional Premiere*), Columbia (Rocky Horror Show), and Texas (Cabaret). Other notable roles included Antigone (Antigone) and Kalonike (Lysistrata). Ryan is excited to not only share the stage with her peers once again but to lead them in this exciting and innovative production.
