Paul’s current news

"Paul Brissett gives an astonishing performance as Lionel. He inhabited this difficult role with utter and complete commitment and made you feel all of the love and the frustration that his caregivers feel for him. It's one of the most amazing performances I've seen all year."

— Carly, Minnesota Theater Love, reviewing "Facility"

Biography

Paul is a retired journalist and corporate communicator whose love for theater was born in kindergarten, when he was cast as captain of the toy soldiers in the Christmas program. Since then he has played roles from classic to contemporary, comedy to drama, in more than 20 productions—his favorites being Faber in Theater in the Round’s “Fahrenheit 451,” Danforth in “The Crucible” and Greg in “Sylvia,” both at the Duluth Playhouse, and the Ghost in Wise Fool Shakespeare’s “Hamlet.”

 

Since moving to Minneapolis in July 2015, he’s been a member of Raye Birk’s Actors Workout and has worked steadily on stage and camera.
