  • Divadlo Na Pradle (map)

Lane Davies will be leading our cast as Don Quixote. Lane was born in Dalton, Georgia. Though perhaps best known for sardonic roles in television comedy and drama, during 30 years as a stage actor, Lane has performed such roles as Hamlet, Macbeth, Richard III, King Lear, and more.

On television, he was the original 'Mason Capwell' on NBC's 80s soap Santa Barbara, an international hit which has now played in over 53 countries worldwide.

Other television credits include starring roles in four prime-time series, Good & Evil, The Mommies, Woops! and The Crew. He appeared regularly as the psychopathic time-traveler 'Tempus' on Lois & Clark - The New Adventures of Superman, and had recurring roles on 3rd Rock from the Sun, The Practice, and Scrubs as 'Dr. Simon Reid'. Television credits also include seven pilots and some 50 guest-star appearances, including such shows as Dallas, Married with Children, The Nanny, Ellen, Jesse, Coach, Major Dad, Clueless, Just Shoot Me, and others.

Lane has taught professional Acting and/or Shakespeare workshops at numerous institutions at home and abroad, including The Kazakh National Academy of Arts in Almaty, Kazakhstan, ANS Media in Baku, Azerbaijan, the University of Georgia, the University of Louisiana at Monroe, Elmira University, Middle Tennessee State University, California Lutheran University, Central Methodist University, and The Webb School.

He has worked as a consultant, writer, and producer for Walt Disney Attractions on projects for Tokyo Disney Sea and EuroDisney, and was Vice-President of ‘FIDOF’, the Federacion International Des Organizations De Festivals for two years. As Artistic Director for the Santa Susana Repertory Company, a professional resident theater company in Ventura County, Lane produced and/or directed over 40 productions and guided the company from its inception. He also founded and was Co-Artistic Director of the Kingsmen Shakespeare Festival in Thousand Oaks, which is currently in its 21st season, and was Artistic Director of the Tennessee Shakespeare Festival from 2008 to 2011.
