Sasha Brätt is an award-winning stage director based out of Hartford, CT. For almost two decades he has staged works from New York to DC, Connecticut to Cape Cod, the Berkshires to Boston. Sasha deftly unites talented artists and inspiring texts to create affecting, contemporary theater pieces. With each production, he seeks to bring artists and audiences together to explore the unfolding of the present moment and reflect, together, on the human experience.


He is especially noted for expert casting choices and a collaborative rehearsal experience for the entire artistic team.
