MATTHEW MACCA

 

BIO

Matthew is a an actor and playwright of short stature and high energy. Originally from Connecticut, Matthew earned his BFA in Acting from Boston University. While at BU he fell in love with performance in many forms, from new plays to Shakespeare, devised work to Commedia Dell'Arte. Whether acting or writing, BU gave him the skills to push boundaries and the appreciation for any collaborative ensemble. 


Since graduating Matthew has based himself in various locations on the East Coast. He's worked with ensembles from DC to Boston to his native Hartford, and hopes to see the whole country while making theater. He enjoys storytelling that speaks to the present moment, relieves audiences of their daily stresses, and everything in between.
