Matthew C. Logan is a critically acclaimed and award-winning director with a career that spans over 22 years and includes six "Best Director" nominations and four "Best Show" nominations. His productions have received rave reviews from Broadway World, Houston Press and the Tommy Tune Awards. Matthew has staged over 40 shows in Texas' most recognized theatres which include Miller Outdoor Theatre and The Hobby Center for Performing Arts.
In addition to his contemporary and musical theatre work, Matthew has directed countless productions of Shakespeare, serving as the Artistic Director of Shakespeare Under the Stars in Wimberley, TX and the Associate Artistic Director of Moon Valley Productions in Phoenix, AZ where he founded its Shakespeare program.
Matthew attended the UK's prestigious East 15 Acting School, graduating with distinction and earning his Masters of Fine Arts in Directing. While in London, he had the privilege to serve alongside Ben Crystal (co-author of 'Shakespeare's Words') as assistant director on Pericles. Shortly after returning to Houston in 2014, he was also awarded the opportunity to assist on Bruce Lumpkin's would-be controversial reimagining of Hands on a Hardbody, which drew international criticism of Lumpkin and the production.
Following the whirlwind of Hardbody, Matthew self-produced and directed three mainstage productions: Angels in America: The Millenium Approaches (Part One), Angels in America: Perestroika (Part Two) and Peter Shaffer's Equus (2014). His award-nominated staging of Equus was hailed by Broadway World as "intense and beautifully poignant", "...tense, vexing and oddly profound." "It was difficult to pry my eyes away." and Houston Press touted it "must-see theater." (Read the full stories here: BroadwayW | Houston Press)
In 2015, Matthew was granted prestigious opportunities in educational theatre, lecturing at Rice University and Sam Houston State University. He would soon take on the role of head artistic director for Kingwood High School. The school's infamous destruction during Hurricane Harvey resulted in the theatre receiving global news coverage from CNN. Matthew was responsible for aiding in the recovery efforts to restore and revitalize the theatre, which successfully reopened the following year with overwhelming support from the community.
Matthew was most recently featured as Assistant Director for Johanna McKeon at The Old Globe Theatre in San DIego, CA on 'Noura'.
