With the onset of the holidays, I’ve finally found time to sit down and add the reviews and a nifty photo gallery from my recent production of The 39 Steps at the Maltz Jupiter Theatre in Jupiter, Florida. I had a fantastic time there onstage and off, and am only sorry it was over so soon. Many people have asked to see photos of the production, since they couldn’t make it down to Florida to see us in person. I’m glad I can finally oblige! But honestly, as delightful as the pictures are, they can’t hope to capture the level of silliness we reached with every performance. I played about 15 or so characters, and had 20 costume changes–6 of them in the last 5 minutes of the show! It was like doing the Actor Olympics–and it was great, giddy fun.
I found a great WordPress plugin that made it easy for me to set up a swell-looking photo showcase, complete with a carousel of thumbnail images for all the pictures, so you can just sit back and watch the slideshow, or you can click any thumbnail in the carousel to jump to that image from the production.
I don’t yet know what 2012 will bring, but I hope it brings more projects like this production, working with wonderful people like all the folks at the Maltz Jupiter Theatre, inspired (and hilarious) director Peter Amster, and my fellow cast members Joe Foust, Christian Pedersen, and Beth Hylton. It was a great experience, start to finish.
You can click the image in this post to view the photos and the reviews. If you happened to receive an iPad this holiday season, the photo slideshow is supposed to display nicely on those devices; it works well on my iPhone.
Happy New Year!
