APRIL - My newly updated Demo Reel has been posted to the Media Page. Please go check it out.
FEBRUARY - I'll be returning to "Henry Box Brown" for a third year as we embark on a six city tour. This will be unlike a normal tour as we will be doing one city at a time. First up is Savannah, GA (February 13th-16th).
FEBRUARY - The short film/pilot I shot last year, "Puppet Seizure," has released our first trailer. You can view it by clicking HERE!
August - "Henry Box Brown" played to huge audiences at our second run at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. The run had such highlights as an appearance on the BBC, tons of local press, and we were nominated for "Best Musical"! This show is so powerful, and I'm very proud to do my part in telling the story.
JUNE - "The Odd Couple" at SART opened on June 20th and ran through the end of the month. We got tremendous reviews like this:
"Jef Canter is pitch perfect as the messy rascal Oscar. His comedic timing is sharp, and much of the show pivots on his great performance." - Mountain Xpress
Here are some images to give you a taste!
SPRING - Announcing a full summer! Heading into rehearsals for a second run of "Henry Box Brown" in Edinburgh! This year, we will have a prime-time slot in a brand new venue! In addition, I will be playing one of my dream roles, Oscar Madison, in "The Odd Couple" at SART (Southern Appalachian Repertory Theatre) in North Carolina in June.
FEBRUARY - "SOON BY YOU" Season 2, Episode 1 is released! It's currently on pay-per-view on Vimeo but will eventually be released on YouTube for free. I'm in the first scene so you won't miss me. (UPDATE: You can now view it on YouTube by clicking HERE!)
JANUARY - On set again! Shooting a short film (which we are hoping could turn into a pilot episode) called "PUPPET SEIZURE." As you may guess, puppets are involved! I play Uncle Bart, who along with my partner, Uncle Billy, form a "way too serious" puppeting duo. It was a great shoot with a crazy costume! Not sure when it will be released but I will keep you posted.
DECEMBER - I'll be SOON BY YOU on your computer screen! Excited to have been cast in the role of Uber Driver in Season 2, Episode 1 of the web series, "SOON BY YOU." We shot the episode right in my neighborhood, and it was great to work with such a wonderful group of people.
November - NETWORK TELEVISION PREMIERE! In October, I shot two episodes of "BULL" on CBS. Episode 308 and Episode 309 which are currently scheduled to air on November 12th and 19th. I had an amazing time shooting this and loved working with this talented cast and crew.
Fall - Pleased to announce that I am now being managed by Abraham-Thomas and Associates.
Summer - I joined the cast of a new musical "Henry Box Brown" and began workshoping the piece to take it to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. I was so fortunate to be able to work under the direction of Tony Award winner Ben Harney and to be a part of the development of this musical. It is the true story of a slave who shipped himself to freedom in a box. I play every horrible white person he meets along the way. The Fringe was an amazing experience. Click here to see some of the press we received.
February - I began studying On-Camera Technique with Bob McAndrew. I also am working as his assistant and have gained valuable experience that will help me expand my career in new directions.
November/December - I played Ned Buntline in "Indians" a play by Authur Kopit at Metropolitan Playhouse. It was my first time at this theater and a pleasure to help tell this story.
July - I went into the studio to have new headshots taken with photographer Dan Demetriad.
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.
March/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.
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.) I also got the chance to record many of the songs from the show which can be heard here on my SoundCloud page.
