David Lautman can pinpoint the exact moment he was bitten by the acting bug. “My earliest acting memory was in my middle school English teacher Steve Haberman’s class.

THE ROUNDUP NEWS

“I think it’s so important to make sure that you have the skills to survive,” said David Lautman, the actor who plays the active shooter in the film. “You know, something like Columbine is a perfect example of law enforcement and faculty not being ready to deal with the problems and with the situation.”
The Columbine High School massacre is one of the most infamous school shootings in which two teens planted bombs and used a variety of guns to injure and kill students at the Columbine High School in Colorado. Fifteen people died that day and the event served as an awakening to school safety and police response tactics.
Playing the part of someone who would commit a shooting on campus is a serious role that Lautman said gave him a surreal perspective.
“It puts you into the experience of what unfortunately does happen in real life,” Lautman said. “As an actor, more so than a regular civilian, you don’t get the opportunity to actually see through your eyes and feel what it’s like to be in the zone of a killer and it’s just kind of sobering.”

Shakespeare’s plays are frequently staged in contemporary dress to make them accessible to modern audiences. Pulp Shakespeare keeps period garb and enlists his distinct style of language to cleverly restage Quentin Tarantino’s Pulp Fiction…
…Pulp Shakespeare recreates the film’s set pieces — the diner dancing, pocket watch story and resuscitation scene — with flair. The touted discussions, such as the sexual overtones of massaging a woman’s foot, work beautifully in the metaphor-rich language of the Elizabethan stage.
Aaron Lyons as Vincent de la Vega and Dan White as Julius are nicely paired; the cast in general — Mia (Hannah Beck), Butch (Christian Levatino), Roger/Zed (David Lautman), and Marcellus (Nathan Freeman) — clicked.
Issues of divine intervention, revenge and loyalty are approached with both menace and black humor intact. Pulp Fiction fans will love it.
