Man, I had such a blast last night at the Spiderhouse ballroom with Ava, Tristan, Javi, Ashleigh and the producers for Testify. I was crazy nervous before-hand, kept picturing myself quaking up there, unable to put words together. But it felt easy once I started. More of that, please. I’m hooked!...
Hey, I get to do this… http://testifyatx.com/ … in a couple of weeks. With buddies Ava Love Hanna and Tristan Mercado (and more!). The theme is “coming clean.” They’re going to be talking about really embarrassing things, but I’ll be talking about what a great citizen I am. A well-balanced night. Oh, so yeah, I...Continue reading
Okay, have big potential theatrical plans for June. They are: 1) Play this character in a short play by Carolyn Kennedy: BILL, 30, reed thin, is attired in the full regalia of heavy metal. His colorful hair shoots from his skull in loong, apoxyed spikes. 2) Have my own short play It’s Time as part...Continue reading
Toying with the idea that people could rent out their homes for small fees to host intimate productions to help fill the gap left by dwindling theater options in town.

Hey, so that fantastic Kyle Zamcheck has now created a short (3:49) trailer of the play, which is a cool recap of the piece. Gives a good sense of tone and brings back some great memories. Here it is: Thanks Kyle!...
So I got cast for a reading of a play by friend and ScriptWorks member Carolyn Kennedy. She wants me to play the character Jules, who is described this way: JULES BERNSTEIN appears in the front doorway. Jules is tall and spindly, mid-40’s. His thick, black hair is combed stiff with mousse, causing it...Continue reading
Psyched I get to do this again (on March 7th): http://www.loadedguntheory.com/flimflam-in-space/ I’ve worked with Loaded Gun Theory before. They’re crazy, kooky and super nice. We get there on a Friday evening and stay up all night writing a short play with some ingredients (this year it will be sci-fi focused). They have a bunch...Continue reading
A photo the director Kyle Zamcheck took during the last performance. I love the mood of this photo and the shadow on the back wall that’s made entirely of pages from a book. And there were so many people packed into that small place it might have been a fire code violation (but I’m...Continue reading
