The Incarnation of the Logos
harmonizes the conflicting nativity accounts of the Gospels of Matthew and Luke, and weaves the threads of many traditions into an intimate but also cosmic drama. Adam and Eve, Moses, Adonis, Osiris, Isis, Apollo, Krishna, Buddha and Zarathustra all appear in this sometimes astonishing retelling of the greatest story ever told. This saga is based on the Gospels and the work of spiritual researcher Rudolf Steiner and theologians Emil Bock and Edward R. Smith.
Glen Williamson, a founding member in New York City of The Actors' Ensemble and New Directions Theater, appeared in numerous productions with both companies. He currently plays the title role in Aeschylus Unbound, which he co-wrote with the late film star Mala Powers, and multiple roles in The Gospel of John and The Refugees' Tale (based on Goethe's Green Snake parable). Glen tours widely in these and in his one-man performances, including The Incarnation of the Logos, Kaspar Hauser, two by Kurt Vonnegut and Beat the Devil!, which won an award at the United Solo festival off Broadway in 2011. Other appearances include Rudolf Steiner's The Souls' Awakening and the award-winning off-Broadway run of Glen's one-man play The Boy Who Saw True. He trained in the Michael Chekhov acting technique and at The Juilliard School and has acted with the American Conservatory Theater in San Francisco and the American Stage Festival in New Hampshire.
