Mohonk Mountain Stage Performs Julia Cho’s The Language Archive

leave a comment

Nice little writeup in the Hudson Valley Almanac Weekly on Mohonk Mountain Stage’s production of The Language Archive, a play I have the pleasure of performing in with the stellar Rich Hack, Molly Parker-Myers, Janet Nurre, Zsuzsa Manna, Doug Wooley, and Cate Olsen. The show is directed (to perfection) by Christine Crawfis.

There is one final show tonight. If you’re around I’d highly recommend that you come by for the performance.

8:00 PM @ Unison Arts, 68 Mountain Rest Road, New Paltz—(845) 255-1559.

Hope to see you there!

4th Wall Productions Buys Theater in Beacon

leave a comment

I’m thrilled to death by this. 4th Wall Productions, a local community theater company, has purchased the old Beacon Theater in Beacon, NY. There are at least a dozen reason why I’m happy about this, many having to do with the fact that one of Beacon’s worst gold-digging property owners is finally giving up a piece of property to someone who cares about it, but on the top of the list is the fact that I may be able to walk down the street to audition, perform, and watch shows.

Fantastic news all the way around!!

Selected Photos from 12 Angry Men

leave a comment

At the jump, about a dozen photos from 12 Angry Men. The show finished this past Saturday to a full house. Overall we had some pretty lively audiences that really seemed to enjoy the show.

The cast was excellent and a real pleasure to work with and it was great to work with Don Creighton again, who I hadn’t done anything with since True West about 12 years ago.

There are more photos at this link.
