Steve Sarro is excited to be making his debut with Company One. His recent credits include music directing GOD HATES MUSICALS (Ministry of Theater) and serving as music assistant for BIG FISH (SpeakEasy).

Thom Dunn rocks out and tells stories, professionally. He is a published poet and comic book author, a playwriting fellow at the Huntington Theatre Company, and a staff writer for Upworthy; when he’s not doing that, he’s writing, recording, and/or performing in various musical projects. Thom enjoys Oxford commas, metaphysics, and romantic clichés (especially when they involve whiskey), and he firmly believes that Journey’s “Don’t Stop Believing” is the single greatest atrocity ever committed against mankind.
Shahjehan, a Massachusetts native, has been performing in one way or another for more than 20 years. He is currently a working actor and educator with The Improbable Players, and most notably is a founding member of The Kominas, a South-Asian punk band that has toured all over the world since 2005. We’re Gonna Die is his first foray into performing with a professional theatrical ensemble as a musician, and he’d like to thank Company One for this incredible opportunity.
Ethan is thrilled to be involved in his first production with Company One and third project working with Steve Sarro. He has been playing drums since he was thirteen years of age with the same drumset that he is playing for this show. He has played for several different rock bands throughout his career as well as many musical productions including BOSTON’S UNSCRIPTED MUSICAL PROJECT (BUMP), IMPROV BOSTON’S GOREFEST 2014, and IMPROV BOSTON’S HOLIDAY SHOW. He thanks you for supporting live theatre and hopes you enjoy the show.
On Wednesday, October 5, We’re Gonna Die will be followed by an exclusive post-show performance of Grown-Up StoryTime.
