Milan Dragicevich has performed with numerous nationally recognized regional theater companies, including the Hartford Stage, the Oregon Shakespearean Festival in Ashland, and the Pasadena Playhouse, as well as a ten-year stint with the Will Geer Theatricum Botanicum in Los Angeles, where he earned a L.A. Dramalogue Critics Acting Award for his portrayal of Richard III. Milan is currently a member of the Northern New England Repertory Theatre Company in New London, NH, with whom he performed Benedick in Shakespeare's Much Ado About Nothing and the wildly exuberant role of Mat Burke in Eugene O'Neill's Anna Christie.

He is the author of the award-winning play, Milosevic at The Hague, produced by the Serious Play! Theatre Ensemble and featured at the Joakim Interfest international theater festival in Serbia, where it received a Special Jury Prize for theatrical innovation. A lead article in American Theatre (February 2010), "An Actor Gives the Devil His Due," captured the compelling experience of performing this play in the land of its setting. This adventurous play, which explores the shifting relationship between power and justice, opened to critical acclaim at A.P.E. Window in Northampton, MA and was featured on National Public Radio's "Morning Edition."

Milan is interested in wakeful, vibrant, arresting theater, where the persuasive force of the spoken word intersects with dynamic physicality and movement, live music, bold design, and a riveting story. He has recently completed a manuscript on the contemporary actor's use of verbal power in the theater.
