Bern Tan (he/him) is a pretty jolly human, if fed. He’s thrilled to join the Artists Repertory Theatre litter, and deeply grateful to be performing in live theatre again. (Please sweet bajeebus, can we be done with this plague already?) Apart from working as an Equity actor, he also finds joy in preparing singers for Broadway/film/TV/college (herding cats), conducting research with a voice lab (eavesdropping on sexually excited rats), and gathering with loved ones at the feeding trough.
He has been on display recently as Stine (City of Angels, Skirball Center, NYC), Kralahome and u/s King of Siam (King and I, National Tour), Sky Masterson (Guys and Dolls, NYU), and Look Young (Discount Ghost Stories, Local Theater Company, CO). Bern also loves creating new works, and was recently seen in Joshua Vrana’s and Maggie Moe’s My Pet Dragon, Annie Sherman’s Piaf Lives, and Finding Home, an original musical featuring the music of Ricky Ian Gordon. Bern holds an M.M. in Vocal Performance and Pedagogy from NYU, and a B.A. from the University of Chicago. For Eric.
