    2/8/2023 Actor, writer, director, producer Gus Kaikkonen is a theater professional, but he didn’t intend to be. His mother suggested he audition for a children’s theatre. They “needed boy’s,” Gus jokes, and his fate is sealed. Although he intentionally chose a college without a drama department, he auditions for a play and not only gets the role, but a producer who sees it, invites him to join their company. Fate, it seems decided that Gus would give his life to the theater and who is he to argue. Most recently He directed “Fully Committed” for Sarasota Jewish theatre
