Play Reading

I recently had the pleasure of being cast in the reading of a new play by David Caudle at Primary Stages. It was a great role, in a great play, and great fun to be a part of.

Next Audio Book

I will record one more book before heading into rehearsals for SLIPPING at Rattlestick. It is called Episodes: My Life As I See It by Blaze Ginsberg. He is a high functioning autistic and the son of writer Debra Ginsberg who wrote Waiting and Raising Blaze. The book is a memoir, formatted entirely like television shows and films would be on (Internet Movie Database). It will be a challenging book to record, demanding consistently high energy. It will exercise the bounds of your perspective and raise questions on the workings of the human mind and the different ways we process the world around us. I am excited to get started!

Good Things,

The Amish Project

This intimate show is a reminder of what theater can do better than any art form: allow us to confront our demons with courage in a safe communal space. Jessica Dickey makes magical turns from character to character displaying an impressive vocal range. All the while she maintains the utmost sincerity, carrying this piece off with refreshing humility and humor! This is Theater at it's most human and essential, as the Greeks intended-designed for healing.

Now playing at Rattlestick Playwrights Theater
