On February 14, 2013 I legally changed my last name from "Wilson" to "Fauntleroy". Press mentions prior to that date reference "Shaun Bennet Wilson." 


a midsummer night's dream, Smith Street Stage

"But perhaps the most interesting dynamic is that of Theseus and Hippolyta (Pete McElligott and Shaun Bennet Fauntleroy)...The idea that Hippolyta measures Theseus’s worth based on his compassion for a young woman who wants to choose her own husband is incredibly sweet." (Austin Fimmano, Plays to See)

"...the acting was uniformly high quality, and was especially remarkable in the attention paid to relatively small characters. Pete McElligott as Theseus and Shaun Bennet Fauntleroy as Hippolyta were true lynchpins of the production, opening and closing the show with a sense of authority and a clearly defined relationship often lacking from portrayals of those characters." (Michael Landes, Theater That Matters)

"Shaun Bennet Wilson as Bernice, the hired consort, is sultry, sexy, and savvy. She’s a predator extraordinaire, hired for a cause. The cast could not have been better chosen..."  (Dr. Roberta E. Zlokower, Roberta on the Arts)
