Kurt Ehrmann

Lord Capulet

Kurt Ehrmann returns to Chicago Shakespeare Theater, where he appeared in A Midsummer Night's Dream, Edward II and Othello. Most recently, work has kept him traveling: as Captain Ahab in Moby Dick (Syracuse Stage); and Caesar in Julius Caesar (Nebraska Shakespeare Festival). Other Chicago credits include: The Comedy of Errors (Court Theatre); The Hundred Dresses (Chicago Children's Theatre); and many productions with The Hypocrites, where he is a company member. Kurt studied acting with Stella Adler at NYU's Tisch School of the Arts. “The first Shakespeare we paid any serious attention to was Othello in ninth grade. It was interesting as a work of literature, but it wasn’t something I got right away. Making theater out of it is when I first really understood what the plays were for.”
