I wasn’t planning on taking on anything more for this year, but then TheatreWorks invited me to do a major role in a new musical for their New Works Festival. The show takes place in Alabama in both 2015 and 1915 and I play a character in each timeline. The music and script are solid and I’m very much looking forward to starting in on this short, but intense, process!
Taking Some Time Off
I’ve been pushing pretty hard in the first half of this year and have accumulated a fair amount of time debt in the rest of my life, so I’m taking some time away from major projects for the summer and fall. I’m sure a few readings and cabaret nights will pop up, but in the meantime I’m very much enjoying the extra time while the days are long.
Head Over Heels (NCTC 12/6 – 1/12)
I loved the production of Head Over Heels while it was here in San Francisco for it’s pre-Broadway out-of-town run. The juxtaposition of Sir Philip Sidney’s 16th century Arcadia mashed up with the music of the Go-Gos was just weird enough to really work for me. I also think the messages of diversity and inclusion make this the perfect follow-up for NCTC’s old holiday Avenue Q slot. King Basilius should be a great time!
