Ensemble member and photographer Chris Popio (he/him/his) joined Trap Door in 1997. Originally from New Jersey, he studied writing, among other things, at the University of Cincinnati and has worked in Chicago as a writer of children’s books, animation, and screenplays. His day job is photographing many of his fellow Chicago’s actors.
Chris Popio as George plays an absurd parody of misogyny, but he pulls it off with likeable charm, and, to me, he had the best one-liners (such as his frustrated exclamation, “Plunge my erection into hell, Maryann!”).
Tom Williams, Chicago Critic (about Fantasy Island for Dummies)
The cast delivers the craziness with a calculated combination of choreographed restraint and reckless abandon.
Venus Zarris, Chicago Stage Review (about Smartphones)
…Ballasted by a strong cast….
Kerry Reid, Chicago Tribune (about The Fourth Sister)
