Richard Buswell

Managing Editor

Richard is the oldest living survivor of KC Stage. He's been with the magazine since the very beginning, when he used translator microbes to put it onto the web.

He is known for his ability to get into fights with just about anyone (he's a fight choreographer), and really likes to tell people what to do (he's a director). He has also shown an uncanny ability to take it as well as dish it out (woudja believe, he's an actor, too).

When not shamelessly promoting himself, he can be found hiding from the general public in the guise of a traveling swordsman.

Gone to the Old Actor's Home

Diane Bulan

Co-Founder, Actor, Mistress Electrician

A child prodigy, Diane Bulan had degrees in aerospace engineering and underwater basket weaving (correspondence) by the age of 9. Her aspirations for a career combining both loves fell by the wayside at the age of 11 when, during a camping trip in the Ozarks, she was abducted by a troupe of thespian ticks.

She was literally bitten by the acting bug.

Some of Diane's favorite roles have been those of inanimate objects: walls, clouds, and in a particularly challenging William S. Burroughs piece, a 1930 Royal typewriter. Her next role will be that of Steve McQueen's motorcycle in the stage adaptation of The Great Escape: The Musical.
