Developmental workshop of May Day.

I had so much fun playing Dean (and a few other people!) in Ryan Krause's May Day, which is based on the novella of the same name by F. Scott Fitzgerald.  What an amazing team of artists!  I can't wait to see what the next chapter holds for this great play!

3 Week Suzuki Workshop

The P3/East training is designed by my teachers Robyn Hunt and Steve Pearson to help performers consistently act with an engaged body and imagination working as one. The practice offers: a combination and counterbalance of the physical rigor, precision, strength in power movements and “inner sensibility” of Tadashi Suzuki’s training with the delicate but still demanding requirements of balance and spaciousness in Shogo Ohta’s slow-tempo, and Hunt and Pearson’s own explorations in finding a clearer presence through breath, specificity, ki study, and silent narrative.

 

 

New York Classical Theatre's Macbeth

"All of this company’s rehearsals and outdoor performances are free and open to the public. But don’t expect to kick back in your seat: Audiences follow the action over about three city blocks during each show."

New York Shakespeare Festival's Julius Caesar

"A clash between Trump supporters and an iconic Manhattan arts institution over what kind of art is appropriate was perhaps inevitable in this hyperpartisan age. The proudly iconoclastic Public Theater is the birthplace of “Hair” (the Vietnam-era antiwar musical) and “Hamilton” (the hip-hop musical celebrating immigrants). And Mr. Eustis, the Public’s artistic director, is an unabashedly left-leaning theatermaker who believes in the value of provocative art."
