Asking for Trouble 2015 – Hot Dog Boys

Hot Dog Boys

Hot Dog Boys

Asking for Trouble came around again this year at Ensemble Studio Theatre’s Youngblood Program.  HOT DOG BOYS by Andrew Massey was fantastic, directed by the sure-handed Collette Robert and with the wonderful cast of Dylan Dawson, Katie Schorr, Michael Grew, Zac Moon, (and me), was both incredibly touching and funny.  A great 10 minute look into family dynamics.

To Kill A Mockingbird at Queens Theatre

Judge Taylor in To Kill A Mockingbird

I just finished playing Judge Taylor (above – presiding over Nafeesa Monroe as Calpurnia and Ezra Barnes as Atticus Finch) and Walter Cunningham in TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD at Queens Theatre.  Directed by Rob Urbanati and with a fantastic cast, we played 10 performances to consistent standing ovations.

Crazy Famous – Agent Mustang

Agent Mustang in CRAZY FAMOUS

Agent Mustang in CRAZY FAMOUS

I had the immense pleasure of playing the role of Agent Mustang (Head of Counter Terrorism) in the film CRAZY FAMOUS, directed by Paul Jarrett and produced by Vincent P. Maggio and (writer) Bob Farkas.  Mustang’s joy was (ironically) terrorizing the fantastic lead cast of Victor Cruz, Gregory Lay, Richard Short and David Neal Levin.  The film will be out in 2016, so keep an eye out for it!
