Christian Levatino is proud to be the Founder and Artistic Director of the GANGBUSTERS THEATRE COMPANY. Since 2002 he has appeared, produced and/or directed twenty-three productions with the company. Some favorite stage roles with the GANGBUSTERS include: SEXUAL PERVERSITY IN CHICAGO (Bernie), ONE FLEW OVER THE CUKOO’S NEST (Randall P. MacMurphy), HUGHIE (Eerie), STREAMERS (Billy Wilson – 3 NAACP Award Nominations), BALM IN GILEAD (Dopey – LA Weekly Award Nominated Best Supporting Actor & Revival-Production), TALK RADIO (Barry Champlain – LA Weekly Award Nominated Best One-Act Ensemble), SEARCH AND DESTROY (Kim – Backstage West Stage Spot), TRACERS (Professor – Ovation Award Nominated Best Ensemble, Backstage Garland Award Nominated Best Ensemble), HAMLET (Hamlet – Backstage Garland Award Nominated Best Actor) and WOYZECK (Woyzeck – New York International Fringe Festival).
In the Autumn of 2011, Christian went to work playing Butch with HER MAJESTIES SECRET PLAYERS for the immensely successful PULP SHAKESPEARE directed by college friend Jordon Monsell. PULP ran for a SOLD-OUT five month run at The Asylum Theatre in Hollywood, Ca. and was nominated for an LA Weekly Award for Comedy Ensemble. PULP SHAKESPEARE would go onto perform in the legendary Cherry Lane Theatre at the 2012 New York Fringe Festival where it was one of ten shows out of two-hundred to be invited to the 2012 Encore Series where it saw additional playing time at The SoHo Playhouse.
Mr. Levatino is a graduate of the University of Connecticut where he received a BFA in the School of Fine Arts. SUNNY AFTERNOON is Christian’s first stage play (that he’s going to show you).
