Interview with Joseph Masson

Posted on February 10, 2016

Hi Joseph, we're so glad you have joined us for Sweeney Todd this season. You've been acting for several years and have been seen all over Atlanta. How did you discover theatre? Do you plan on continuing pursuing acting throughout your life? 

I discovered theater in 1st grade. My little sister was doing an acting camp for The Wizard of Oz. I saw the production and fell in love with the idea of being on stage. I asked my mom to sign me up for a class ASAP. I really haven't stopped since! If given the opportunity, I would love to continue acting! If it doesn't work out, I think I'll be a lawyer.

 What's one of your favorite shows you've worked on? 

My favorite (besides Sweeney Todd, of course), is Les Misérables. I got to play my dream role of Gavroche. It was also my first time working with Kevin Harry (he's awesome!).

If you could play any other character in the show, which one would you choose? 

The role I would choose to play would be Pirelli. Working with Stuart Schleuse and seeing him act as the flamboyant Italian barber is inspiring to me. I think it is a wonderful part. 

I hope you are having fun working on Sweeney. What's been the best part of working at Actors Express? 

My favorite part about Actor's Express is the people I get to work with. I am surrounded by many gifted, smart, and hilarious people. They have all taught me so much. I really hope I will someday have the opportunity to return.
