Cornerstone Theater Company


Meet the Magic Makers- The Director

Meet the “Magic Makers” behind the creation of Cornerstone’s upcoming production of “Magic Fruit”. We are thrilled to bring together this award-winning creative team to envision, design and produce the futuristic alternate reality that is “Magic Fruit”. This article is part of a series giving you a glimpse in to who these Magic Makers are. We asked each of the nine members from our Creative Team the same four questions. In the next several weeks, we will share those responses with you. 

Meet the Director: Shishir Kurup

What are three words that describe you?

“Brilliant, Funny, Imaginative, Kind, Thoughtful”

“Distilled from my friends, Kathe Mazur, Jeff Sugarman, Nehal Shahin and Aparna Sindhoor.”

What is your connection to Cornerstone.

“I’ve been here over two decades and in the Hunger Cycle I directed Seed, Love on San Pedro, Magic Fruit and wrote Bliss Point.”

Why Magic Fruit?

“Because this piece speaks not of a dystopian future, but the insipient moments of a Dystopian time with forewarnings all around us. The art of the piece is in how we can come together to ameliorate what is clearly going off the rails.”

What do you hope the audience will take away from their experience?

“A sense of urgency and intrepidness to make whatever shifts necessary to protect our beloved Earth.”


Shishir Kurup… Director, Writer, Actor, Composer and ensemble member since 1993.
