Southwest Shakespeare Company has much to answer for – and that’s a good thing.
A constant bounty of young, excellent actors has emerged from the company to spread their talents to other theaters, enriching audiences Valleywide.
Andy Cahoon is one of those actors. Emerging into prominence in the mid-2010s, his charismatic presence bids well to win him many fans in the years to come.
To date, his biggest impact has come from his performance as the title character in Childsplay’s Robin Hood.
It’s just the beginning.
