Wild for Theater

by | May 3, 2008 | 0 comments

There are few people more active in the Madison theater community than Brian Wild, who is a whirlwind of theatrical energy. Besides working a full-time job to pay the bills he is an actor, sound designer, composer, director, playwright, and Artistic Director, in addition to serving as a Board member and Treasurer for Broom Street Theater.

Wild started his theatrical career in school plays in central Wisconsin—in his hometown of Wausau and at college at Stevens Point—where he earned kudos for performances in Play It Again, Sam and Tartuffe. After moving to Madison he got involved with Madison’s experimental theater, Broom Street Theater. He has appeared on stage in dozens of roles with several groups, mostly at Broom Street.

Aside from acting, he is an accomplished musician and composer. His talents have been used primarily in sound design, a field in which he has been heralded as among the best in the state. He created the sound design for First Banana’s production of Angels in America, as well as dozens of others for several theater groups.

After many years on boards Wild decided to try his hand at writing and directing in 1997. Since that time his plays form a litany of some of the more successful plays in the history of Broom Street Theater: Tales for a Millennium; How to Succeed in Business Without Really Dying; Pippi Long Stalking; Sex Kittens from Mars; The Ghost and Dr. Liz; The Dumb Ass; Tales for a New Millennium; Flowers for Dubya; 667: The Number of the Neighbor of the Beast; and most recently, Dork Side of the Moon.

Wild has been the Artistic Director of Madison’s LGBTQ and allied youth theater group, Proud Theater, for the last four years. He is responsible for the overall running of the organization, as well as putting together performances throughout the year and a culminating year-end performance, which this year will be held at the end of May at the Evjue Theater. After those performances he has about a week of free time scheduled before he gets back to work on his next project.
