In July I went into the studio to have new headshots taken with photographer Dan Demetriad. My main headshot is pictured on the left and the other two I'll be using for commercial and theatrical are below. I'm happy with how they turned out and I'm looking forward to seeing how they work for me.
2017 has been busy... In February, I played the lead role, Michael Larson, in a staged reading of a new musical by Brandon Sturiale called "Big Bucks: The Press Your Luck Scandal." The music and script were amazing, and we had a five-piece rock band backing us up! (Not your average staged reading by far.)
Then, in March and April, I played Don Mangemore, a mafia kingpin, in Theater for the New City's production of "Grand Theft Musical." It was a fun role with two great songs and my first show at this iconic NYC location.
In May, I opened "Giovanni the Fearless," which was also performed at Theater for the New City. It's a folk opera in the commedia dell'atre style. I played Jacopo Bombasto, the patriarch of an acting troupe. This was the first full staged production of this work, which was very exciting... I also got some great press from this and had a spotlight interview on Theater in the Now.
