Fan Mail From Vermont!

This week, out of the blue, I received a lovely email: Andrew:  we have seen many of your performances at Vermont Stage and we were wondering if there are any DVDs or tapes of any of your performances that we might purchase, such as The Foreigner.  You have been a special gift to the Burlington […]

Exit the King–Remembering Actor Donald Grody

One evening last week, I went to refill a small portable bottle of non-aspirin pain reliever pills that I keep in my audition bag.  I opened both the jumbo Costco-sized bottle and the little travel size bottle, and filled the little one with pills from the big one.  I replaced the lid on the large […]

King Lear Ruled! I’m thrilled that our production of King Lear at Vermont Stage was a massive hit with both critics and audience members.  The production starred Broadway veteran Donald Grody as the tragic title character.  The entire production was beautifully cast, designed and directed, and the live percussion soundscape took the production to a […]

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, […]

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 […]

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 […]

“A Godot Worth Waiting For!” The Vermont Stage Company production of Waiting for Godot was a huge hit with critics and audiences.  We received three reviews, all raves, and sold out almost every performance, turning people away at most shows even after adding extra seats.  This, despite snowstorms!  It was a wonderful experience onstage and […]
