Jeb Burris


Jeb Burris makes his Chicago Shakespeare Theater debut. Recent regional credits include: The Three Sisters (Heartland Theatre Company); The Glass Menagerie, Richard III, Titus Andronicus, The Merry Wives of Windsor ( Utah Shakespearean Festival); and the touring production of Macbeth (Illinois Shakespeare Festival). Jeb received his BA at Ball State University and an MFA from Illinois State University. He trained at Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre in London and the Royal Shakespeare Company in Stratford-upon-Avon. Jeb first studied Shakespeare, reading Macbeth in ninth-grade English. “My teacher asked me to read the Witches’ lines in the beginning, and while I didn’t understand all that I was saying, it felt spooky and supernatural—and I was amazing at how words were able to affect me like that.”
