Cage Sebastian Pierre


Cage Sebastian Pierre makes his Chicago Shakespeare Theater debut. His most recent roles include George Murchison in A Raisin in the Sun, Thami Mbikwana in My Children! My Africa! (Park Square Theatre); and as an apprentice company member at American Players Theatre (APT). He will return to APT this summer for his second year as a company member and journeymen. Cage is a recent graduate of the University of Minnesota/Guthrie Theater BFA Actor Training Program. He attended the High School for the Performing and Visual in Houston, and decided upon a career in acting when he was eighteen. Assigned an art project on one of the characters in Romeo and Juliet when he first studied the play in high school, Cage wrote “a song about Tybalt, the Prince of Cats.” When he’s not acting, his favorite hobbies are Capoeira—a Brazilian Martial Art/Dance Form—and dancing, including Hip-hop, House and Afro-Brazilian.
