Nikolai Witschl – Cymbeline by William Shakespeare – University of Alberta Studio Theatre, Edmonton, 2012

In February 2012 I joined the cast of the University of Alberta’s production of Cymbeline to replace Tristan Mi, a young actor who sadly passed away very unexpectedly halfway through the rehearsal process. It was my absolute honor to work with the BFA 2012 class, a group of strong, talented individuals, and to help them through this extraordinarily difficult time, which also makes Cymbeline the most important show I have ever done.
