After an off-broadway run, Mike Izquierdo ’96 Tells Regians to Analyze Theatrical Experiences With Their Heart.
“The class had such an impact on me when I was a student as it opened up my eyes to so many forms of theater,” said Izquierdo of the senior elective.
“From big Broadway to the very humble but fantastic one-man-show way off-off Broadway: it taught me how to appreciate theater in a new way, and was one of the seeds that made me grow into becoming an actor and filmmaker.”

The opportunity to interact with current Regis students was important to Izquierdo.
“I love coming back to Regis because Regians have an innate ability to analyze text. But what happens when you ask them to analyze a theatrical experience with their heart? What moved them and why? What happens when you apply that same textual analysis to your heart’s experience of a play? It’s fascinating stuff.”
Izquierdo found the opportunity to promote the great community of Regians in the arts equally rewarding.
“Some of my greatest friends and professional collaborators, I met at Regis, so I remind them of that every time I go and visit the classroom. They too could be making films with their friend sitting across from them years later!”
