Since 2017 member of the Staatstheater Augsburg ensemble, Sebastian Müller-Stahl regularly gives strong performances, among others in Peer Gynt, Käthchen von Heilbronn, Der Sturm, Der Untergang des Egoisten Fatzer, Die Physiker, Der Drache, Auf dem Paseo del Prado mittags Don Klaus and many more. This season he was particularly brilliant as Johnny “Rooster” Byron in the German-language premiere of “Jerusalem”, for which he gave his all. An anti-hero, an outcast, a storyteller who reaches the point that only he believes in himself.
“Ingenious,” says Richard Mayr of the Augsburger Allgemeine, “how Sebastian Müller-Stahl explored this and stood in the limelight for four hours. Where did he stand? He was always on the move, his Byron cannot stand still…”.
“He throws his body with power into this role of violence, as a dazzling forest rascal with muscles, whiskers and wrecking-ball charisma”, said Veronika Lintner, also from the Augsburger Allgemeine, in her review of the premiere in September 2022 – “and who, despite, or perhaps because of this? develops a certain charm and attraction, especially for the young people who come to him to live out their dreams, their longings.” Justifiably, there was enthusiastic applause for this commitment, for this energy time and again.”
Congratulations to Sebastian Müller-Stahl for this great performance and for this year’s theatre award “Golden CISA”.
