BENJAMIN BURT (Director) Benjamin Burt is making his directorial debut with Sex With Strangers. After studying directing and filmmaking in college, he spent the bulk of the last decade pursuing acting and developing a career in front of the camera. But the drive to direct never left, and Ben started to direct work at the Beverly Hills Playhouse where he has studied for five years. Crimson Square's mentorship program offered the perfect opportunity to develop a full production under the guidance of producer Faye Viviana and mentoring director, and owner of the BHP, Allen Barton.
DERRICK MCDANIEL (Lighting Design) Derrick McDaniel has been working in the live theater arena for over 25 years, both in Los Angeles and New York. From Romeo and Juliet to Guys and Dolls, Derrick has designed lighting for many plays, musicals and corporate and private events. A few of his lighting credits include “Mercy Seat” (2012 LA Weekly Awards Winner) at the Inside the Ford Theater, “Spring Awakening” at the Malibu Playhouse, The Addams Family at the Madrid Theater; and An Octoroon at the Fountain Theatre – and many others. Derrick’s latest nomination was for a 2020 Ovation Theater Award for Lighting Design for Nowhere On The Border at the Road Theater on Magnolia. Luckily, the theater spirits have allowed us to create live theater, again.
FAYE VIVIANA (Executive Producer) Faye Viviana is an actress, producer, and award-winning filmmaker. Her professional ballet career with American Ballet Theatre cut short by injury in 2007, she pivoted to acting and filmmaking. She has appeared in numerous roles on TV, most notably for Longmire (Netflix), S.W.A.T. (CBS), and Deputy (FOX) to name a few, and many independent films. After working as an independent film producer for other companies for several years, she branched out on her own, founding V3 Productions in 2018. She is thrilled to be a founding member and executive producer of Crimson Square, and to work with such a talented group of artists. She has produced I Am My Own Wife, Dinner With Friends, and Cock under the Crimson Square Banner. Faye is overjoyed to be back in the theatre and so grateful to the cast and crew of Sex With Strangers for hanging in there and overcoming the odds to get this show onto the stage. She is passionate about all facets of storytelling, exploring the human condition, and has a pretty serious book addiction.
