Anthony Fusco
Anthony Fusco will adapt and direct Niccolò Machiavelli's 16th-century satire The Mandrake, to be performed by the American Conservatory Theater (A.C.T.) Master of Fine Arts Program class of 2013. The play will be performed at Hastings Studio Theater, February 1-11.

Fusco is basing his adaptation on Malachi Bogdanov's 2008 film The Mandrake Root, itself an adaptation of the play. In it, a cunning man concocts an elaborate ruse to sleep with a beautiful young woman.

The cast will include Rebekah Brockman (Lucrezia), Raymond Castelán (Brother Timoteo), Allegra Rose Edwards (Sostrata), Ethan Frank (Siro/Waiter), Nick Steen (Ligurio), Tyee J. Tilghman (Nicia), and Titus Tompkins (Callimaco).
