Robert Wesley Mason

(He/Him) Hailed by DC Theatre Scene as a performer who “can pull out a drawl like twang and convince us he might be someone on the circuit playing country rock then turn around and nail it as a 'serious' baritone,” Wes has performed more than 50 unique roles across the U.S. and abroad from modern works to the inherited repertoire.
