The Morning Call, Thursday, June 23, 2005
Myra Yellin Outwater, arts writer, interviewed Michael Tylo, who is now playing the title role in the Pennsylvania Shakespeare Festival's "Henry IV, Part1." Tylo has had a long career in Hollywood and television soaps and now lives in Las Vegas, where he teaches film and stage acting at the University of Las Vegas. "Shakespeare is like the pinnacle for an actor," says Tylo. According to Tylo, he owes it to his students to keep current and feels there is nothing like Shakespeare "to recharge your batteries and get back into acting." The father of four, including two sons and two daughters, Tylo believes it is particularly appropriate at his age to be playing Henry because he now understand the kinds of conflicts between fathers and sons. Tylo's first show with PSF was in 1996, when he played Iago in"Othello." Presently, Tylo is enjoying a reunion with fellow graduate students from Wayne State University who are now at DeSales. They include Dennis Razze, PSF's artistic director, and Wayne Turney, who plays Argan in PSF's "The Imaginary Invalid" and has just joined the performing arts faculty at DeSales.
