Zachary Reeve Davidson is an actor, director, writer, and teacher, known for his bold characterizations and dangerous, imaginative original works. He is the Founding Artistic Director of Coin & Ghost, with whom he creates preposterous things. Other favorite theatre credits include Romeo and Juliet and What the Thunder Said (Rebel Mars Co.), Ajax in Iraq and Paradise Lost: Reclaiming Destiny (Not Man Apart – Physical Theatre Ensemble), Hamlet (Miles Memorial Playhouse), The Johnny Cycle (Speakeasy Society), Green Grow the Lilacs (Theatricum Botanicum), and two full repertory seasons with Shakespeare Santa Monica. Film credits include the Ron Perlman/Amazon series Hand of God, the mini-series I Don’t, and the short film Jeffrey, in which Zach played a young Jeffrey Dahmer. His first original digital work, Gramlet, was met with critical acclaim and large-scale bewilderment.
In his “spare time,” Zach is a company member with Not Man Apart, Salty Shakespeare, and Theatricum Botanicum. He is also a sought-after Arts Marketing expert, consulting and creating with non-profit organizations all over Los Angeles. Zach produced over 125 projects as a curator for the CalArts New Works Festival, was a Young Playwright’s National Finalist for his play Amsterdam; or Loving George, and served as Shakespeare Santa Monica’s youngest-ever Associate Artistic Director. He was born and raised in Denver, CO, and is a proud graduate of the CalArts BFA Acting program.
