Kathryn Blessington

Hi, my name is Kathryn, and I am ASE's Rondo Theatre intern for Spring '19. I am a third-year at Oberlin College but live in Portland, Oregon. I am a worrywart, a lover of anything on Netflix under an hour, and an avid coffee drinker (my favourite coffee shop in town is The Secret Garden Café near Prior Park).

I am majoring in English and creative writing - much to the disbelief of the Rondo, who have an understandably hard time believing someone who isn't a theatre major is interning in a theatre. Although I don't want to go into theatre, I've always enjoyed being in and helping produce student productions. What I really love, though, is to write, so I'm writing reviews of shows as part of my internship. I'm not approaching my reviews with extensive knowledge of theatre - I'm just giving my opinion as to whether they could be a fun night out for ASE students, and most certainly have been thus far!

I hope that these reviews will inspire prospective ASE students to visit the Rondo for a night of experimental theatre, stand-up, burlesque and much, much more...
