Alum Nick Harazin named a HOT new face in Chicago Theatre

The Chicago Tribune (July 19, 2012) names Nick Harazin one of the top ten " hot new faces on the Chicago Theatre Scene" and praises him for his acting chops in the city's tough and highly competitive field. Critic Chris Jones singles out ten actors who have been burning up Chicago stages in the previous 12 months. " You may well not yet know their faces. We think you should. And in many cases, we think you will soon." Harazin, an Apple Valley, MN native, gave a "richly empathetic performance [ in Andrew Hinderaker's new play I'm Going to Change the World] that made you only want more of the actor behind it."

While on the Twin Cities campus, this U of M Theatre Arts and Dance grad played many roles including the lead in Macbeth and the role of John Harker in 2003's much celebrated Showboat production of Dracula under the direction of the late Charles Nolte.
