Kenny Mihlfried

Kenny has been a member of The Gift since its very first production. Starting out humbly as one of the company’s photographers, Kenny soon began to appear onstage in supporting roles (Phrygian – Orestes 2.0, Crawley – The Countess, Tommy/Michael – Language of Angels). Working closely with his brother, Bob—a.k.a. AudioBob—Kenny designed sound and composed original scores for eleven consecutive Gift productions (Language of Angels through Beauty Queen of Leenane).

During that time and shortly thereafter, Kenny continued to perform onstage, tackling roles that were somewhat larger than before (Sir Charles Sturman – The Clearing, Tuzenbach – Three Sisters, Freud/St Thomas – The Last Days of Judas Iscariot, Dr Jason Posner – Wit, Richie – Streamers, Dr Spivey – One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest).

Most recently, he appeared as Betty/Edward in Cloud 9, followed by Douglas Eden in Absolute Hell. Sometimes, Kenny thinks he would rather be a florist, or he wanders away for months at a time. But he always comes back. Kenny is a part of The Gift as much as The Gift is a part of him.
