I performed in my 11th consecutive season at the Vermont Young Playwrights Festival.
As always, the students scripts represented an amazing array of styles and topics, and my roles ranged from ultra-realism to far-out fantasy. Due to financial resource limitations at the theatre, this was my last season with the festival; it’s been a great 11-year run for me!
THE REVIEWS ARE IN! I starred in Vermont Stage Company’s production of the Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award-winning drama, I Am My Own Wife.
This one-man tour-de-force was my biggest challenge yet, and I was thrilled to perform this great play to such a fantastic response. The production was beautifully directed by Sara Lampert Hoover, and we are eager to present it at other Equity theatres. For reviews, pictures and interviews, please click here.
The New Audio Recording of The Merchant of Venice is released.
This recording was produced by JBI International, and directed by Elizabeth London. I play both Salerio and Launcelot Gobbo, and also composed and sang the original music for the song Tell Me Where is Fancy Bred?. This is a well-spoken, straightforward production with American accents. It will be made available free on 3 CDs or as an mp3 file to anyone who is visually impaired or physically disabled.

I appeared in Vermont Stage Company’s second annual holiday production of Winter Tales.
The 2005 show sold out and garnered rave reviews, and this year’s show did the same. This year, I read another sharp, funny and poignant new story by noted Vermont author Chris Bohjalian: “Hark, the K-Mart Angels Sing”, and I also sang holiday favorites.
I was elected President of the Lewis Carroll Society of North America (LCSNA).
This not-for-profit organization’s efforts include educational outreach in the form of readings and performances from the works of Lewis Carroll. Twice a year I go to schools and give free readings from either Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland or Through the Looking-Glass and What Alice Found There. If you know a school that would like a reading, or for more information, please visit www.lewiscarroll.org .
I performed in my 10th consecutive year at the Vermont Young Playwrights Festival.
This year’s roles included a film-noir detective, an arrogant Frenchman, an easy-going Death, and more.
I’m delighted to say that Vermont Stage Company asked me back to appear in their original holiday production, Winter Tales.
The show sold out and garnered rave reviews. Looks like the start of a great holiday tradition for the theatre! I read a funny, sharp and wise story written especially for the occasion by noted Vermont author Chris Bohjalian.
FOREIGNER X3! I played Charlie in Vermont Stage Company’s production of The Foreigner.
This was my third production of this great comedy, and I found new surprises with the Vermont Stage cast. Artistic Director Mark Nash, who directed Waiting for Godot, directed me again for this show, which was a huge critical and box office hit — the highest percentage of tickets sold per night of any play in the company’s 12 year history!

I performed in my 9th consecutive year at the Vermont Young Playwrights Festival.
This year’s roles included a shy guy on a blind date with a shrew, Adam, a suspected jewel thief, Satan on the Dating Game, and a lowlife, motel-hopping vampire with poor taste in after-life partners. Some memorable roles!
I performed in the Samuel French 10-Minute Play Festival on June 19th in NYC.
