Actor John Tracey is the latest to answer Opus Affair's #10Questions. Learn what his fantasy superpower is and why he'd look great in a 10 gallon hat.

What is your profession?
Actor. Bridge Rep Associate Producer.

Where do you live?
Coolidge Corner

What/when was your first Opus Affair?
November 2013 at Moksa!

What's a cool project you're currently working on?
Just kicked off Bridge Rep Year Four! We're performing a scene from our production of Julius Caesar on the steps of the Boston Public Library to mark the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare's death. That will be truly awesome. Meanwhile we're also gearing up for Mrs. Packard, this great big American beast of a play we're doing in the spring. It's another collaboration with Playhouse Creatures—the New York company we did The Libertine with in our first season—and it's already shaping up to be a beautiful, gripping, epic story we'll be sharing.

What does it mean to live a creative life?
Pursuing excellence with rigor and heart whilst leaving the haters to figure it out for themselves.

What would your fantasy superpower be and why?
I want to be Batman, because his superpower is just profane wealth.

What GIF best describes you?

If you weren't in Boston in 2016, what city and era would you be most at home in?
I think I would've been a hoot in the Wild West.

Who would play you in the film (or musical or operatic) adaptation of your life?
Tony Hale and a Kate Winslet ventriloquist dummy in the Sofia Coppola-directed HBO miniseries that doubles as a Lana Del Rey visual album.

Name the next three fascinating #bosarts people we should send these questions to next.
Stephanie LeBolt. Rebecca Miller. This guy I know—Stephen Ursprung?
