Jeremy’s studies have sent him to Havana, Cuba on two occasions. The first in the summer of 2007, to witness and study the educational inner-workings of Cuban Theatre and the second (more recently) in the winter of 2008 as Salerio in William Shakespeare’s The Merchant of Venice (El Mercader de Venicia). The collaboration, directed by Professor Seth Panitch, was the first Shakespearian collaboration between American and Cuban actors in over fifty years.
