David Millstone, who has cherished memories of singing and acting alongside animated objects, was “a beast” in the role of the Father (Mr. Samsa) for Alliance for New Music-Theatre, which he performed in both Washington, DC, at the Woolly Mammoth Theatre space and DC Fringe and later in the Prague Fringe.
In 2017 he was featured as Staněk in the company’s production of Protest, which was seen in “apartment performances” in diverse venues as the Czech Embassy residence, FIU University, the Dupont Underground, and in a private bar for Cuban resistance fighters.
Other theater credits include two years in rotating repertory with the American Shakespeare Center, where in eight productions he played twenty roles, including Henry IV in Henry IV, Part 1, Malvolio in Twelfth Night, Dr. Caius in The Merry Wives of Windsor, and Holofernes in Loves’ Labors’ Lost, among others. His favorite roles at other theaters include Nixon, in Frost/Nixon (Springer Opera House), James Tyrone, Jr. in A Moon for the Misbegotten (u/s, The Arden Theatre Co.), The Actor, in The Woman in Black (Wayside Theatre), Radzi, in In the Matter of J. Robert Oppenheimer (Northwest Classical Theatre), and The Mayor, in The Front Page (Mt. Hood Repertory Theatre).
In 2015, David widened his focus to include on-camera acting with appearances on NBC's The Blacklist, and in the feature film Sarah Q. David can also be seen in the PBS documentary, The Sultan and the Saint, as well as in a number of independent films. He currently is working on a film adaptation of the company’s production of Protest in collaboration with Petr Jancarek.
David came to acting later in life, after teaching high school English, dabbling in academic philosophy, writing for small town newspapers, and exploring much of the American west, often on motorcycle. When not acting, he can be found scuba diving, bicycling, skiing, motorcycling, and writing.
He holds an MFA in theatre from the University of Houston Professional Actor Training Program under Jack Young. MA, English Education, Teachers College of Columbia University. Proud Member, Actors Equity Association and Artistic Member, Alliance for New Music-Theatre.
