Eduardo Xavier Curley-Carrillo is a young artist learning to make a life doing the thing he loves best — acting. Recently, he has graduated from Illinois State University with a B.A. in Acting and an eagerness to work! He also had the fascinating privilege of becoming part of the family that is the National Theater Institute, a family that calls the Eugene O’Neill Theater center “home.” There, he was lucky enough to help develop Boo in the becoming musical The White City by Avi Amon and Julia Gytri, amongst a handful of other new works by his profoundly talented company. At ISU, Eddie was able to exercise the acting muscle through a mosaic of colorful and varied roles including Tam McCodrun in Selkie: Between Land and Sea, Aman in Water by the Spoonful, and George in Stop Kiss. Now, on the cusp of a new chapter in his life, he is so grateful to find such a welcoming community of artists and friends of artists in the White City, the Windy City, the Second City Chicago. His longing for this new chapter is to find a family of artists to make exciting, new, and challenging theater with.
