Layne is incredibly happy to finally be working with Kirk and the entire TUTA company.

Other Chicago credits include Assisted Living with Profiles Theatre, The Lady’s Not for Burning with Theo Ubique, Our Bad Magnet with Mary-Arrchie as well as working with TimeLine Theatre, & Jackelope Theatre. Layne also works as a commercial and film actor in Chicago seen in commercials for Blue Rhino, White Castle, Lind-Waldoc, Green Dream Group, and will be in the soon to be released feature film In Between Engagements. Layne is a member of The Plagiarists and Cole Theatre where with either company he performs, graphic designs, co-writes plays, production manages, and inevitably tries on whatever hat is available. Layne attended the School at Steppenwolf in 2009 and earned his Bachelor of Arts from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln.
