- Assistant Professor of Opera Theater
Christopher Mirto directs "Wakey, Wakey" in Cleveland
October 11, 2019
Christopher Mirto, Oberlin Conservatory's assistant professor of opera theater, makes his Cleveland directorial debut in Will Eno's play Wakey, Wakey at Cleveland Heights' Dobama Theatre. It opens Friday, October 18 and runs Thursdays through Sundays through November 10. Mirto describes the 80-minute production as "a smart show about life and death, silliness and simplicity, and it ends with quite a celebration of what it means to be human." In 2014, Dobama was designated as a Small Professional Theatre (SPT) level Equity House, only the third such theater in the region. Find information about tickets on their website.
