Even as nearly a whole year of pandemic living approaches, small good things come through and we are more grateful for them than ever before. I finally got back some footage from a feature film after its digital release this summer, I added part of a scene from it to my reel!
finally, the greatest little acting joy of quarantine was getting to perform a wonderfully spooky and funny new play written for Zoom and presented by Fullscreen Blackbox. we were incredibly humbled to present two performances for charity, and we raised over a thousand dollars for the Stonewall Community Foundation.
I thought the show was a great success and I dearly loved the role, despite working… in my bedroom. but that’s our reality, and the play was a great blessing in so many ways.
some more exciting interdisciplinary things are coming from me too, as the world changes, and I endeavor to change with it. I’ve already got a Linktree set up in preparation for these new websites, soon featuring my cocktails and my songwriting.
It’s been a quiet fall full of near misses with both big gigs and big representation, but little creative projects continue to pop up. I had the greatest of pleasures taping the Broadwaysted! podcast’s annual holiday radio play, “Broadwaysted, Actually” playing the surprisingly important role of “Kevin #2” [read: did NOT think I was going to have to do so much work when cast]
You can listen to the first of the three episodes below. Even got a shout out from Robbie Rozelle for my work on it, so, you know, NYC theatre royalty now eh??
Regional theatre accomplished, as I am back to New York City from Pennsylvania, and enjoying the end of summer at home.
What a terrific run, and what a joy to play Stephano in THE TEMPEST, The Phoenix Theatre’s inaugural production. Here are some great photos from the show by Wide Eyed Studios! I didn’t have any fun at all… (yes, that is a “Vote for Pedro” t-shirt)
I am so honored to be a part of the inaugural production of The Phoenix Theatre, a new Equity regional house outside Philadelphia. I’m keeping my good groove of Shakespeare clowns going by taking on Stephano, and it is such a privilege to be playing him with such a warm and talented group of collaborators.
I am very fortunate to be working a fun and pithy new workshop of Shakespeare’s Measure for Measure, going up downtown June 8-11th. I am playing a fun comic double of LUCIO and ABHORSON, and hope folx can check it out!
After a thrilling week last week, where I shot my *unreleased, tba, etc etc* full television debut, I am now working on a wonderfully prescient new piece that playwright (and dear friend) Jacob Marx Rice is workshopping.
