Thank You Ivoryton Playhouse!

Last week I had the privilege of spending 5 days in Connecticut playing one of the two leads in a staged reading of Jennifer Lane’s new play To Fall in Love With Anyone, Do This at the wonderful Ivoryton Playhouse. It was a magically fulfilling process and performance, with dynamite collaborators and a terrific script.

Hope to get back to visit and work on more projects there in future!

Here are a couple photos from a recent Equity staged reading with Three Act Theatre Company in NYC that I was lucky enough to participate in. Yes I was playing a homeless man, hence my less-than-graceful facial hair.

It was great to be properly singing again, even if it was just for a week.

Thanks to Micah Joel Photography for the great shots

TWELFTH NIGHT is a hit!

My life after grad school ticks along in much the same way for the time being, with great Shakespeare sponsored by The Old Globe. The San Diego Union-Tribune recommends the show!

But, more importantly, our audiences in the community have been enjoying it immensely. This is already one of the more fulfilling artistic experiences of my life.

Come check us out, we run through the 19th of November all across San Diego!

showcase is done, info on TWELFTH NIGHT run, NYC here I come, October is here so dun dun duuuunnnnn

Thank you so much to everyone who came out to either of our Old Globe / USD Shiley Graduate Theatre Program Acting SHOWCASES in New York City and Los Angeles. The support and buzz was inspiring, and it was especially great to meet some terrific alumni doing excellent work in both major artistic hubs. I feel incredibly lucky to have finished my graduate school experience with something both so fun and so advantageous to my career!

Based on response, I will be heading back to NYC by the end of November, a community and city I know and love well. More details on that soon.

Meantime, TWELFTH NIGHT with The Old Globe’s Globe for All program starts rehearsals tomorrow! Information on this fantastic project can be found here. We run November 2nd – 19th in various venues around San Diego, with most performances totally free of charge. Come check us out!

Summer Shakespeare @ The Old Globe … GO

Only 4 DAYS (!!!) after finishing graduate school classes on the University of San Diego campus (and with just 6 months left in San Diego with this amazing MFA track), rehearsals kick off TOMORROW for a new project… the summer Shakespeare season at the Old Globe!

First up is RICHARD II, where, in addition to playing Green and Surrey, I’ll be understudying the title role. I’m unbelievably grateful, and excited to start.
