Ryan Darby

Ryan Darby (Catherine Simms) is happy to be on the Cutting Edge stage again so soon after starring in Heartbreak Henry, only a few months ago, as Letty Ethridge. Ryan is honored to be included in such a talented company of players under the direction of the incomparable Sara Pagones. Ryan received her theatre education from the University of Southern Mississippi and is currently living in New Orleans pursuing a career in film and television. You might’ve seen Ryan in previous roles at Cutting Edge including Shelby (Steel Magnolias), Harlene (Southern Fried Funeral), Columbia (Rocky Horror Show) and Texas (Cabaret). Previous roles from her past also include The Not You Girl (The Producers), Antigone (Antigone), and Kalonike (Lysistrata). She would like to thank Brian and Richard for providing the platform for us to create meaningful art and for allowing her to play some incredible favorite roles. She would also like to thank Sara Pagones for challenging her with the role of Catherine and for all of the guidance during the rehearsal process.
