Resume

ANTONIO CASSONE, originally from Detroit, has been ambitiously involved in theatre for since \'right out of high school\' in 1988. He pursued what he loves to do and has been involved in numerous aspects of theatre, publishing, photography and spoken word recordings ever since. He has produced, performed, written and co-directed two major, award-winning plays; the semi-autobiographical \"The Ashley Correspondence\" in 1993 and \"Dont Let Me Be Lonely Tonight\" in 1995 at 1515 Broadway in Detroits theatre district, after an assistant artistic directorship with Notled Productions.

While at Notled, he was part of \'the little production company that could,\' as they performed and produced the plays; \"The Bridge,\" Delton Murphys \"There Must Be a Pony,\" \"Zagers Follies\" (an AIDS benefit for MAPP), and \"Bedpost Missionary Baptist Church,\" among various workshops and improv exercises. Notled relocated to New York, then moved to Los Angeles and has thrived and grown into a theatrical movement in that area.

At the time, Antonio decided to stay in Detroit, as he felt a strong responsibility to aide his ailing parents and grandmother, all now deceased, but each has had a long-lasting affect on his ethics as a person and a hard-worker in general. He performed in Patrick Burton`s masterpiece \"Punk\" and produced/performed/directed eight \"Extravaganzas\" in the `90s, which were fashion/variety shows and twelve spoken-word recordings including, \"No Measure,\" an audio play about victim-survivors; \"Miranda Davison,\" an audio play about his career as a female impersonator/illusionist/ entertainer and \"Diva/Cassone,\" his first poetry cd.

ANTONIO CASSONE is also, most recently, an accomplished author with five books to his credit. DIVA/CASSONE (2006), a book of poetry and LOOKING THROUGH THE NAKED WINDOW (2007), book one of his memoir series are published through Publish America. OPENING THE NAKED WINDOW (2008), book two of the memoir series and THE NAKED WINDOW: EXPOSED/REVELATIONS (2009), books three and four of the memoir series were released as a combo through Create Space, along with BLUE SKY: WRITINGS FOR STEVEN AND OTHER PEOPLE I HAVE LOVED FOR SO LONG (2010). CASSONE has over 130 poems published at on various poetry websites and has been honored numerous times by The International Society Of Poets, who awarded him an Editors Choice Award for \"Him\" in 1999, for \"My Son\" in 2004, for \"The Phoenix\" in 2005, \"You\'re on My Mind\" in 2006 and \"His Glistening Navel Ring\" in 2007. He was nominated for Poet of the Year from Famous Poets in 2005. He has also been published in numerous poetry anthologies from The International Library of Poetry and The Iliad Press.

Cassone has sat on various boards including, most recently, the Performers Awards of Detroit, where he served as Chairperson and won their prestigious Congeniality Award in 2002.

He currently resides in South Florida and is penning the rest of his memoirs NAKED WINDOW book series, another poetry collection and has a variety of spoken word and video projects in the works.

He also started the Cassone2007 channel on YouTube and gained attention and quite a following with the \'reality web series\' GETTING READY, which is now nearing the end of it\'s third season and you can also find select spoken work recording/slideshows of works from TEARS AND THUNDER, DIVA/CASSONE and THE ECSTASY to name a few. The channel also has select slideshows of Photography by Cassone.

Also known as Miranda Davison on the female impersonation circuit, the multi-faceted persona came full circle by going by the name Cassone for the shows as well, as he is known throughout the photography and press industries. In October 2008, Cassone performed in their 1,000th career performance. It is a step in another direction for this accomplished entertainer, author, photographer and activist.

Cassone has always been accused of being the \"worker bee,\" on his feet; always about the project; whether it be a play, a benefit, a poem, a manuscript - he is always about the `art` of the matter and getting to the heart of the project. Says the artisan, \"I am up for a challenge - any challenge - that provokes thought, provides entertainment, soothes the soul and perhaps makes a little bit of coin.\"
