The San Franciscans: Colin Hussey
Colin Hussey looks right at home in his gumshoe-esque fedora, standing at the foot of this alley street, which shares his name in Dashiell Hammett's old neighborhood - the Tenderloin. Colin is an actor who believes the new and independent theatre scene in San Francisco is hotter than ever. A recent stage appearance came in the First Annual Bay One Acts (BOA) Festival, which showcased the work of thirteen Bay Area writers, the same number of directors, ten local theatre groups and forty-five local actors. Having lived more than 12 years in the same Tenderloin apartment, Colin has roots here. He's proud to be part of a growing community of creative people whose work here is not just training for New York or LA, but is part of a commitment to further the strongest possible professional creative climate right here in the City by the Bay. A short list of the things that Colin loves about our town includes the wide variety of excellent eating establishments within walking distance of his apartment, San Francisco's beautiful views and mostly mild weather, and its neighborhoods. Golden Gate Park, PacBell Park, Dolores Park, and the carousel at Zeum/Yerba Buena Gardens are also favorites. "There's a unique and irrepressible energy to the City," he says, "and a strong, vibrant community that keeps me here."
