I hope the rights to Nathan Louis Jackson’s beautiful play, “When I Come To Die,” are available for a full production. I put together an informal reading this morning at Shetler Studios with myself as Roach, Jay Ward as Damon, Matt Ip Shaw as Crouse, Audrey Martells as Chantel and Miles Lott doing double duty… Continue reading When I Come To Die

Hey, save the dates!

June 17th: directing “Motherly Love” by Lia Romeo as part of Greenhouse Ensemble’s 10-minute play festival. My three actors are perfect and this is going to be delightful. June 30th: appearing as Father de Leo opposite Patricia Perales in a scene from “The Rose Tattoo” at the Gene Frankel Theater.

A new booking!

I closed out last year with two auditions on the same day after a long dry spell. Each resulted in an offer, and offers never fail to thrill. One involved a long commitment I could not afford to make, but the other, a short film being produced under a SAG contract, will find me in… Continue reading A new booking!

Last year at this time I directed a young actor named James Meneses in “Motherly Love” for The Greenhouse Ensemble. This Wednesday I will be directing a reading of a play James wrote called “Mama’s Baby Boxer.” James has such a beautiful way with language. I am grateful for this opportunity to begin bringing the… Continue reading Mama’s Baby Boxer

Recent months, upcoming projects.

I can’t believe how long it has been since I have added to my website! In October of 2017, I directed a wonderful short play, Scott Mullen’s “The Blue Album,” for The Greenhouse Ensemble. I have been offered first refusal as a result of my first audition of the year, for an industrial. I see… Continue reading Recent months, upcoming projects.
