Everything you ever wanted to know about

Kevin T. Collins:


A native of the San Francisco Bay Area, Kevin T. Collins began his career on the stage at the ripe old age of six, performing throughout his childhood and adolescence across the Bay Area in theaters such as Theatreworks in Palo Alto and San Jose Civic Light Opera, now the American Musical Theater of San Jose. He received numerous awards for Drama and Singing throughout Middle School, Junior High and High School, including AMT's Best Actor award for his portrayal of Groucho Marx in A Day in Hollywood, A Night in the Ukraine, and two Best Musical wins, for A Day in Hollywood, and The King and I (in which he played the King).

In 1997, Kevin applied and was accepted to NYU's Tisch School of the Arts, and he then spent three and half years studying at the CAP21 Musical Theater studio, followed by a semester at Stonestreet Film and Television. In 2001, after performing in numerous Tisch productions, including Camelot (Arthur), The Who's Tommy (The Specialist), City of Angels (Stine), and in his cross gendered portrayal of Jenny Diver in The Threepenny Opera on the Tisch Mainstage, he graduated with Honors with a BFA in Drama, and began his life in the real world.

Kevin's first professional work took him to the Outer Banks in North Carolina, where he spent two summers performing in Terrence Mann's The Lost Colony, the longest running show in the country (71 consecutive summers at the time). Upon his return to New York, he worked heavily in the Off-Off-Broadway scene, originating roles in new works such as Lucifer in Angels, Beelzebub in Paradise Lost, Chico in One Way Ticket to Hell, Jack/Jenkins in The Gathering Room, Robert in For Love of the Boy, Eddie in The Blonde, Steve in Library Play, 11 characters in Real Live Sex on Stage, 12 characters in Please Please Please Love Me, and countless others.

In the past year, three of the shows Kevin has worked on for years, Angels, Brunch, and Paradise Lost, took huge leaps forward, and Kevin was asked to leap with them. Paradise Lost, in which Kevin created the role of Beelzebub in an Off-Off-Broadway production, multiple readings, and the official studio recording (check out the Press and Audio Samples from the show), has a new name and a new destination: Sophia's Fall played the New York Musical Theater Festival. Brunch the Musical, in which Kevin helped to create the role of Steve, the frantic restaurant manager, enjoyed a limited Off-Broadway run at the Chernuchin Theater in midtown Manhattan. And Angels, in which Kevin originated the role of Lucifer at the NYMF Festival in 2006, is making the leap to Broadway in 2009-10, and Kevin has just been offered and accepted the role of Dasher, Satan's hyperactive evil minion. Type-casting? We think so...


Kevin's film career began in 2004, and since then he has built an extensive resume of student films, shorts and features. Two of his first features, Aunt Rose and ZA: Zombies Anonymous, have been distributed on DVD in 14 countries worldwide by Anchor Bay Entertainment and Well Go USA, respectively. Some of his other titles include, Tuesday, Black Mary, The Concoction (Winner of the Grand Jury Prize at the Wizard World Texas Film Festival, and the Best Comedy Award at the Wizard World Los Angeles Film Festival), One Step Behind (Winner, Best Picture, the ESRA Film Festival), Red Hope, and three features currently shopping for distribution: Inner Rage, The Sickness, and Inbetween (shot on location in London, Brighton, Birmingham, and Oxford, UK).


In the past few years, Kevin has also made the leap onto the small screen, playing recurring roles on Guiding Light and Law & Order, Guest Starring on Law & Order: Criminal Intent, and appearing on As the World Turns, Comedy Central's short-lived sitcom Stella, and the unaired pilots of Pros & Cons for ABC, MTV2’s The Williamsburgers, and Exit 19 for CBS (opposite Geena Davis). He also appeared in a National Motorola Razr Commercial, which you can watch on the Demo Page.


And when he isn't making movies or creating characters in new shows, Kevin spends a great deal of time in the sound booth, recording audiobooks, animation work, radio and TV commercials, looping films and TV episodes, and more.

Shortly after graduating from college, Kevin began working regularly in the anime world, voicing lead roles in the japanese series Berserk (Griffith), The Gokusen (Shin), which aired on the EWAM network, Professor Go in Giant Robo, Ritsu in Hades Project Zeorymer, Aburatsubo in Magic User’s Club, Toru in Sadamitsu the Destroyer, Shirogarusu in Samurai Deeper Kyo, Tadaaki Amatsu in Shrine of the Morning Mist, Yagyu in Shura No Toki, Pulse in Twin Signal, Senbei in Ah My Goddess, and most recently in the upcoming Cartoon Network series Huntik, the Nikelodeon show Three Delivery, Kurokami on iaTV, YuGiOh 4Ds for 4KIDS, and the English overdub of the live-action japanese film, The Machine Girl, and the Norwegian horror film Dead Snow for IFC (Official Selection at Sundance, available soon OnDemand) Many of these series can be found in Blockbuster and Virgin Megastores, and online at, or at

In the past few years, Kevin has also recorded radio and/or TV spots for Alliance Credit Union, Verizon, Thai Kitchen Products, Ebay Motors, and H&R Block, and was recently chosen to be the new voice of Time Warner Cable.

Kevin's debut audiobook, Lone Survivor (Hachette Audio), a New York Times Bestseller, was awarded an Audiofile Earphones Award for Excellence, and his subsequent books, Against Medical Advice, written by none other than James Patterson, Anita Shreve’s Testimony: A Novel (also an Audiofile Earphones Winner!), Laurence Gonzales’ Everyday Survival, Kyle Mills’ Lords of Corruption, and the one and only Isaac Asimov’s The Currents of Space are all available in stores and online. Robert Hicks’ A Separate Country and Kami Garcia’s and Margaret Stohl’s Beautiful Creatures release late this year. Museum-Goers can also hear Kevin’s voice around the country, since he began voicing audio guides with the New York based Acoustiguide, Inc. And Kevin was thrilled to record his first videogame recently. Due to a non-disclosure agreement, we can’t share much information about it, but it was for Rockstar Games, its working title is “Colt,” and it’s set to release this fall.


Most recently, Kevin originated the roles of Steve in the new rock musical Brunch at The Chernuchin Theater (where Urinetown started), and Max in the World Premiere production of Made in Heaven at the Midtown International Theater Festival, played the infamous serial killer Eddie Gein in the first complete reading of the new musical The Butcher of Plainfield at The Actors’ Studio (demo album to follow shortly - check out the Audio page for a sample), as well as shooting a scene with Liev Schrieber, Demetri Martin, and Henry Goodman for Ang Lee’s (Brokeback Mountain; Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon; etc.) new movie, Taking Woodstock. The film, based on the book by Elliot Tiber, will be released in the summer of 2009, the 40th anniversary of the famous festival! Plus the producers of Angels the Musical just flew Kevin halfway around the world, to Sydney, Australia to perform the role of Lucifer (which he originated in 2006) at a fundraising event with a full orchestra and choir.

Made in Heaven, in which Kevin plays half of a set of conjoined twins, makes the leap to Off-Broadway this fall after winning Best New Play at the Midtown International Theater Festival Awards. Previews start October 22nd at the Soho Playhouse in downtown NYC.


Kevin is also a singer/songwriter who released his first album, Crossing to Safety, in 1998. His second, Inbetween, is currently in production.

Kevin lives in New York City with his wife, the actress Meghann Dreyfuss, and their two dogs, Houdini and Isabelle.
