The Gospel According to...Kyle Hines

Name: Kyle Hines

Hometown: Ponca City, Oklahoma

Education: The Studio/New York & Oklahoma City University

Who do you play in The Mysteries?: Lazarus and Herod underling

Tell us about The Mysteries: The Mysteries is an adaptation of a 12th and 13th century grouping of morality plays from York. The plays are written by 48 amazing writers and performed over the course of the night by 50+ incredibly talented actors. This beautiful work starts from creation and moves all the way through the Bible to Judgment. It will make you cry and laugh and go, "holy crap that, shit was crazy!!!" I think it will speak to both the religious and non-religious alike, because it is coming from such a vulnerable human place - our desire to connect to something greater than ourselves - and that is something I think everyone can relate to. 

Describe The Mysteries in three words: what the f**k!!!!

What's the wildest costume you wear in The Mysteries?:
It would be too easy for me to say my "birthday suit," so I will say my Herod underling outfit, it is scary as Hell.

If you could be anyone from The Bible, who would you be?: I would say Elijah, it would be pretty bad ass to command bears to maul your enemies!

Which company member is most likely to actually have lived during Biblical times?: Matt Cox

Which company member is most likely to be the Messiah?: Ed Iskandar

Most likely to become an angel?: Definitely Jaspal Binning

Most likely to hear voices in their head?: AJ Ditty
Who's the most spiritual?: Jon Huggins

 On the 8th day god said_____:
Let there be ZELDA!!! Specifically OCARINA OF TIME!!! --- But like all gifts from God we bastardized it, and created Majora's Mask.

Are you going to heaven or hell?: I hope heaven! But who really knows?

Which of the Seven Deadly Sins are you?: I am too lazy to answer this question!

What's the biggest inside joke at The Mysteries?:
dead babies....

What's your favorite moment from The Mysteries?:
dead babies....

What is the most rewarding part about being a member of The Mysteries?: dead babies....But seriously, having the opportunity to work with some truly amazing people on some incredible writing and storytelling is just about as fulfilling and rewarding as it gets. Every night I am blown away by what we have created, and to be able to share it with the cast and crew and everyone in the audience is something that I will cherish for a very long time.
