The Wilma HotHouse has empirically changed the way I think about and approach theatre making. To have the opportunity to explore, grow, train together and investigate exactly what it means to engage the actor’s thinking body, this ensemble allows me to take risks that have made me an exponentially better artist.

Justin Jain is a Wilma HotHouse member, previously appearing in Dance Nation, There, Romeo and Juliet, Blood Wedding, and An Octoroon, among others. Recent stage credits include The Great Leap (InterAct), This is The Week That Is (1812 Productions), and Broccoli, Roosevelt, & Mr. House! (FringeArts) with his Barrymore nominated alt-comedy theatre company, The Berserker Residents (www.berserkerresidents.com). Additionally, Mr. Jain has performed Off-Broadway and with many regional theaters including: Arden Theatre Company, Lantern Theatre, Azuka, People’s Light, FringeArts, Shakespeare in Clark Park, McCarter Theatre, Theatre Horizon, Passage Theatre, Milwaukee Rep, The Assembly in Edinburgh, ASU Gammage, and Ars Nova NYC, among others.
