I’ve been trying for a couple years now to get work in commercials, industrial films, and other local film and video projects. So far it’s been all auditions and no work, except for one photo shoot and some background work. Maybe things are turning around, though. This past Monday I had my first speaking part […]
I said I’d post more frequent updates, didn’t I? Well, at least this time only three months have passed since the last post, compared to six months the time before. The Hovey Summer Shorts were great fun. I got the rare opportunity to do a dramatic (rather than comedic) piece as well as a comedy […]
Wow, over six months since my last entry. Whoops! It’s been an extremely busy time for me in all aspects of my professional and personal lives. Some of the highlights included: A very successful run of Alarms and Excursions at the Hovey Players in Waltham last January. An enormously successful run of Blackadder II:Live at […]
I’ve been cast in Michael Frayn’s Alarms and Excursions, to be produced by the Hovey Players in Waltham, Mass., from January 14-29, 2011. We’ve had one week of rehearsals so far and I think it’s going to be a fun show. When I was 15, I saw Frayn’s Noises Off in London’s West End and nearly fell […]
Tonight’s the dress rehearsal for A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum. It’s pretty amazing what we’ve been able to pull together in only a month with just 9 hours of rehearsal a week. Kudos to director Doug Hodge, who plots a sure course and runs a tight ship. I’ll miss the show […]
Auditioning for stage plays and auditioning for commercials are about as similar as teeing off with a driver and making a putt. And right now, I think my commercial audition skills might be even worse than my golf game. I just finished a callback for a thirty-second commercial in which I was to play a […]
On August 1, I’m auditioning for Christopher Durang’s Durang Durang, to be produced by Bad Habit Productions this fall. Wish me luck.
I’m not supposed to blog about it, so all I can say is that I spent the day working as a background actor in a major motion picture that’s been shooting in and around Boston this summer. It was a lot of fun and it was terribly boring — but worth doing again!
I’ve been cast as Hysterium in Sondheim’s A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum at Woodland Theatre Company in Sherborn, Mass. The show has only three performances, September 24 – 26. It’ll be my first musical since 1988. Hope I remember how to sing.
I did the StageSource audtions today. I played George, the lawyer, in Constance Congdon’s Losing Father’s Body, and Herbie, the father, in Donald Margulies’s The Loman Family Picnic. The audition has already led to one part, which is a good sign.
