Robert IAN cutler

Robert Ian Cutler is thrilled to be joining the Commonwealth family! Robert has been performing locally for the last decade. In addition to acting, Robert has focused on improv, puppetry, and education of late culminating in the launch of the Pennsylvania Theatre Institute at West Chester University. Recent credits: Nicole Atkins' Brokedown Luck (music video), Cripple of Inishmaan (Curio), Page One (PHIT Comedy), Henry IV (Team Sunshine/SCP). After much soul-searching, Rob is declining the nomination for President of the United States of America. It isn't that he's not flattered, he's just interested in seeing other countries right now and doesn't want to be pinned down in a monogonational relationship. Also, he's ridiculously into the current decline of western civilization and has decided to take up the fiddle. He thinks it might come in handy just in case something starts burning.
