On August 1, I’m auditioning for Christopher Durang’s Durang Durang, to be produced by Bad Habit Productions this fall. Wish me luck.
The International CringeFest in New York is divided into several themed evenings, and my two short sketches are both part of “Sex Encounters of a Disturbed Mind.” (My film, “The Boss Gets Some Bad News,” will open every night of the festival.) “Sex Encounters” is looking to be the marquee event. It will be playing the night of the festival’s gala event, and one of the actors in the cast is Richard Pryor, Jr. (yes, the son of that Richard Pryor). Read more at Playbill.com.
I won’t be going to the gala, but I will be in New York to see the show on July 31. If you’ll be in NYC that weekend, let me know!
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 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.
I did my first modeling gig ever on June 14, for a corporate brochure. Given my, um, “character actor” looks, I don’t anticipate a lot of modeling work. But it was fun and it paid well, so I’ll take what I can get.
I’ve been invited back to the International CringeFest in Times Square this summer. This is the group that did The Flaming of the Shrew last year. They’ll be producing two of my comedy sketches and showing a Downfall parody I created just for this festival.
