Two years after I ended my first run on the Heartwood boards, I find myself back in coastal Maine performing in a staged reading of Bloomsday by Steven Dietz. Directed by Griff Braley and featuring the talents of Deirdre Manning, Mary Fraser and Cliff Blake, this is a play that... well, it's a bit trippy … Continue reading What’s Bloomin’ this Spring?
Dear fellow human beings; fellow breathers – Currently playing at DalekoArts is an off-beat and heartrending play called Middletown by Will Eno. Hard to define in certain terms, I will often describe it to people as “Our Town for the 21st Century”, even though I know that that doesn’t nearly complete the picture. While both … Continue reading Middletown: There’s a lot More in Between
The life of a theatre artist is certainly one of constant activity and at times can be a little unpredictable. One day you're sitting in your studio, eager to finally finish the novel you’ve been chipping away at and the next you see a production call needing some stage hands. Hmm… I haven’t done that … Continue reading Mr. Hannam Goes to St. Paul
This past Christmas I decided to update the old headshots. While my previous ones had served me well for seven years, I decided that I may actually look older now at 26 than I did at 20.

Yep, Of Mice and Men plays just about every morning between now and mid-December to students who get to enjoy … Continue reading Of Mice and Kids
Speaking of work that gets seen by hundreds upon hundreds of people (assuming you’ve read my previous post), my touring stage adaptation of Frankenstein is once again on the road for the Hampstead Stage Company. As you remember from last year, I was charged to write this play by my bestie Jay Pastucha (Artistic Director) … Continue reading Return of Frankenstein!
Whenever people or the IRS ask what my occupation is, I do say “actor”. That’s what my training was in and I’m fortunate enough to often be cast in something or another. While my occupation may be “actor”, that’s not exactly how I “make my living”, i.e. making the money I need to literally survive. … Continue reading When Work is Play
Life is an interesting thing sometimes, especially as an actor. Asked to portray many strange characters, we sort of grow desensitized that this can seem a little... absurd to people unfamiliar with the craft. Well, following a get together of like-minded, absurd theatre folks, I was asked to play the character Westley from the 1987 … Continue reading “As You Wish” at the Ballpark
