Connections (Revisited)

May 4, 2012  |  News  |  Comments Off

Last April, I did an industry backer reading of a new rock musical by Grace Millo, called Connection. I am thrilled to report that Grace has asked me back again to do another industry backer reading on May 14! This time, the book is by David Caudle, whose fantastic play, The Short Fall, I did last year with Toy Box Theatre Company. In Connections, I will again be playing Burt, an out of work, homeless ex-banker with a great character song, “People Should Come with Plans.” The cast is pretty new this time around, so I don’t know their resumes, but BOY CAN THEY SING!

Midsummer of a Geisha

April 13, 2012  |  News  |  Comments Off

The Hive Theatre’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream is coming back! This time, we’ll be performing at Theatre for the New City under a slightly different name: A Midsummer Night’s (Queer) Dream. I’ll admit I’m not crazy about the title at all. I think the change is unnecessary.

We originally performed the production at The Cell. but this production will be at the historic Theatre for the New City in the East Village. We’ll be performing in their Off Broadway space, the Johnson Theatre.

To what does the post title refer, you ask? Well, it refers to the fact that in this production, not only will I be playing Egeus and Snout the Tinker, which I played in last Summer’s production at the Cell, but I’ll also be playing the fairy, Peasblossom. In this production, Peasblossom is a geisha! OMG, I’m a geisha!

The production runs April 27 – May 19 (previews April 25 and 26) and tickets can be purchased here.
