Rachel Burttram is Southwest Florida’s best female actor, hands down. In 2020 she portrayed a physically and psychologically damaged woman in “Alabaster” and portrayed Nora in “A Doll’s House, Part 2,” both at the Florida Repertory Theatre. (The latter was cancelled, due to the pandemic, but later streamed online.) On the Disney + channel, she could be seen as Betty Grissom, astronaut Gus Grissom’s wife, in the remake of “The Right Stuff.” Then, in late March 2020, she started Tiny Theatre on FaceBook with her husband, the actor Brendan Powers, acting from their walk-in closet, reading plays, monologues and scenes from new and established playwrights.
