Matt Posey, actor and founder of Ochre House Theater, was shot in Deep Ellum Monday night. He’s hospitalized in stable condition.
Police say Posey and another person had left the bar Cold Beer Company after 11 p.m. and were getting into their car on Main Street. A gunman opened the driver’s side door and began firing. Posey was struck twice in the face. The shooter has not been caught, according to Dallas Police.
Posey’s Ochre House is a funky storefront theater in Exposition Park. It’s known for visceral dramas … and adult puppet shows. The theater just opened “Dr. Babaganoush,” a musicial which Posey wrote and performed in. (Here’s Dallas Morning News theater critic Nancy Churnin on that production.) Friends and family gathered at the hospital Tuesday. Performances this week have been postponed, said Carla Parker, Ochre House operations manager and company member.
Posey also acts in movies and television shows. He appeared in “No Country For Old Men” and “The Magnificent 7.”
