Lazarus Simmons

Class of 2021, MFA

"There is nothing noble about being superior to your fellow man, True nobility comes from being superior to ones former self."

Ernest Hemingway

Lazarus Simmons was born in Missouri, but has bounced around all over the United States and London. He would describe himself as a super-nerd and dreams of being
Blue Marvel in the MCU–or any character when the West Wing eventually reboots.

 
He has been in theater since six when he was in Fairy Tale Remix in elementary school.  He graduated from The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill with a BA in Dramatic Art and Political Science. While there he competed in collegiate level fencing.  After graduation he worked in the North Carolina regional theater scene. Without a doubt, his
driving force is the love of creating work with his theater tribe.  

He owes any successes of character to his father. 
Some recent credits include: Bad American Dreams, The Winter’s Tale, Cymbeline, The Rehearsal, Dead End, The Typographer’s Dream, The Nether, The Creature, Brabo,
Brownsville Song, The Shipment, and Recall.
