Terry Shea

Bio:

Terry Shea has been involved in RI Theater since 1986 and graduated with a BA in Theater Performance from Rhode Island College in 1992. Since then, he has been working in Theater, TV and Radio on a regular basis and co-created the RI Theater review website, MoreTeeth, in 2010. Reviewing for Motif since November 2012, Terry is still (mostly) active as an actor, director and sound designer and also as a voiceover talent for 990WBOB internet radio. Sometimes he brings his kids to the shows to keep his reviews from being too jaded, but they're more cynical than he is. | tbshea@hotmail.com | 413-429-1872|
