MAX LEE is a graduating senior from John Jay High School in Cross River, New York. He will be attending the University of Michigan next year, majoring in English with a minor in theatre, and he is thrilled to be an intern for NPTC for the months of May and June. Max is currently directing a comedic one-act play, All I Want is a Shag Carpet, that he wrote for a school production. He has also previously performed with his brother’s improv troupe at Harvard University.
