"Coursey was called to New York City right after his sophomore year... He was happily pursuing his studies at U of M when he got the call. Within a few weeks, he was rehearsing in New York with Michael Grief, the original director. As Coursey said, “I had no intention of leaving school. This fell into my lap, but I’m learning an incredible amount on the road with this cast and crew.” DEH is his first professional contract."
