ICP CLASS OF 2018:
Clifton Holznagel: I've been rolling around onstage since the late nineties and don't plan to stop anytime soon. I began life in Cleveland, Ohio and credit Near West Theatre for my early development as an empathetic human/artist, Pierre Davignon (RIP) at St. Ignatius High School for inspiration in the craft of Acting, and the Ohio University Division of Theatre for developing my attention to voice, body and mind in their BFA program. Shout out to Grandpa and Dad, I'm proud to bring our performance lineage into the 21st century with its third generation.
