Caitlin Wees

Isaac Harold

Isaac Harold is best described as a butterscotch unicorn. He loves to play with Mind The Art Entertainment, most recently on their production of "The Dream Vault Cycle" at LaMama, and last year's FringeNYC award winning production of "Fatty Fatty No Friends". Other ridiculously titled productions include "My Gay Killer Husband: A Lifetime Original Musical" (as part of the Players Theatre's BOO festival last October), and a reading of "Topeka is Turning: or The Ryan Seacrest Play" (under Theatre Now NY). He has successfully passed young-performer rites such as appearing in cabarets at Don't Tell Mama, and the Cranky Cabaret (brilliantly, we might add). He also performed one time at the Lincoln Center, which was definitely pretty cool. His only credit in a commercially recognizable musical was when he did "Hairspray" at a community theatre in Canada. Thanks to Patrick, for introducing me to the concept of a butterscotch unicorn (you changed my life, man), and my two succulents Gayle and Gayle, for always being there for me and for needing so little water.
