2016-2017 Winter Shows with NextStop and Brave Spirits

December 2, 2016|

This winter is shaping up to be pretty busy with three great projects coming up!

First is the original romantic comedy, Shakespeare’s Much Ado About Nothing, at NextStop Theatre. I’ll be playing Borachio, one of the guys who starts all the trouble, and Friar Francis, the guy who figures out how to sort the whole mess out. It’s my first time working with NextStop and I’m excited to get going! Find information about the show and buy tickets on their website.

After that is the Brave Spirits spring repertory featuring John Ford’s ‘Tis Pity She’s A Whore and Beaumont and Fletcher’s A King and No King. In ‘Tis Pity I’ll be playing Richardetto and in A King […]

2016 Page to Stage Festival at The Kennedy Center

August 22, 2016|

Coming up are two readings, both part of the 15th annual Page to Stage Festival at The Kennedy Center. First is Illegal Helpers, a play by Maxi Obexer translated from a German play by Neil Blackadder, presenting on Saturday, September 3 at 12:30 pm. Next is a reading of The Bloodless Jungle, by Peter Lawson Jones, presenting on the same day at 2:45 pm.

Illegal Helpers is produced by Scena Theatre and directed by Robert McNamara. It deals with topics relevant to today’s political scene in America, including immigration, welfare, and other social issues. I play a student, Fabian, who speaks out and fights against the injustices of existing asylum and immigration laws. […]

From Prague Fringe to Capital Fringe

June 8, 2016|

The Scena Theatre War of the Worlds tour to the 2016 Prague Fringe Festival couldn’t have gone better.  Audiences and reviewers alike enjoyed the show and we even won one of the Fringey Awards! Prague is a breathtaking city with a complex and interesting history…it was a true treat to explore it and perform there.

Now it’s on to the world premiere of Hunt, a political tragedy about power, blackmail, and tragedy in the U.S. Senate. It’s based on true events that took place during the 1950s, a time dominated by Joseph McCarthy. Senator Hunt, a Democrat swimming upstream in a congress controlled by Republicans, finds himself in the middle […]

War of the Worlds in DC and Prague

April 29, 2016|

Before getting started on Hunt, a new political drama performing at the 2016 Capital Fringe Festival, I’ll be performing War of the Worlds with Scena Theatre!

It’s a stage production of the famous 1938 radio broadcast by Orson Welles that seemed to depict the invasion of Earth in real time. The show combines the text of the broadcast and snippets from at-home listeners responding to the convincing broadcast. It’s an ensemble-style show, but in the listening world, I play a college boy tuning in and in the studio world, I play an intern/doughnut boy.

We perform first in DC, at the Atlas Performing Arts Center at 1333 H St NE. Previews play […]

Hunt at Capital Fringe 2016

April 25, 2016|

The Scripts in Play Festival with WSC Avant Bard is in the record books! It was terrific to read with such a great cast and make some new friends. Edward Bond’s Lear is a very interesting play that would resonate well in contemporary culture, but it does present some extraordinary challenges that might make it a tricky choice for the WSC Avant Bard season.

Next up for me is a new play called Hunt, a production of the 2016 Capital Fringe Festival. I’ve yet to read the full script, but the basic idea is that the show takes place in Washington, DC during the 1950s and follows some of the political […]
