The Village Voice calls Sacre “Remarkable . . . a serious artist” and Backstage says Sacre is “powerful, hilariously honest . . . the man is an out and out genius.” His shows have garnered numerous Critics’ Choices in San Francisco, LA, New York, and Chicago.
The “most produced playwright in Fringe history” (Time Out New York), Sacre’s 2002 New York Fringe offering was called by Backstage “exquisite…one of the most skillful and satisfying performances of the year.”
“He is not a character actor nor a comedian but someone with a perpetual story and an extraordinary talent for engaging an audience. Therefore, he is frankly funny, uncompromisingly believable, and above all – kind.” (Backstage)
Antonio Sacre, born in Boston to a Cuban father and Irish-American mother, is an internationally touring storyteller, author, and solo performance artist based in Los Angeles. He earned a BA in English from Boston College and an MA in Theater Arts from Northwestern University.
