Professor Masami Iwai is the rare combination of theater academic and performer. His knowledge of the craft is vast. But he doesn’t limit himself to just watching shows and reading texts. He also takes the stage. He experiences firsthand the challenges, and the joys, of bringing the characters he plays to life. And what’s more, he can do it in English and Japanese.

Prof. Iwai was kind enough to sit down with us for a rapid-fire interview. He covers a range of topics from teaching, to studying, to performing. There’s a lot of interesting tidbits to hear about his life in theater.

Prof. Iwai will be playing the role of DR GIBBS in Nagoya Players’ upcoming production of Our Town.

Please join us June 12-13, 2021 at Chikusa Playhouse. Tickets available via TicketPia, The Rock and IPE Academy in Nagoya.
