Ricardo Perez-Gonzalez

A performer and teaching artist in New York City, Ricardo is a graduate with honors from NYU's Tisch School of the Arts, where he earned his BFA in Theatre with a minor in Applied Theatre (the interdisciplinary use of theatre for purposes beyond entertainment, such as activism or therapy). His recent projects include Juan González in Migrants! Cantata a los emigrantes, an originating role in Suzan-Lori Park's celebrated 365 Days/365 Plays at the New York Public (Teatro Pregones), the Padre in Man of La Mancha (Duo Theatre), Marat/Sade (Classical Theatre of Harlem), Figaro in Le nozze di Figaro, Tom in Un ballo in maschera, Schaunard in La bohème (Burgas Opera House, Bulgaria) and El Dancaïro in Carmen (Hradek Kralove Opera Festival, CR). His favorite role is Joe in the one-man show Johnny Got His Gun (FringeNYC 2005), for which Curtain Up and nytheatre.com hailed him as "remarkable" and "utterly compelling." In addition to being a proud member of BAPT, Ricardo is also a member of The Dreamscape Theatre, an arts ensemble specializing in creating new work through a collaborative process. As a singer, he studies voice with Lenora Eve.
