Shakespeare in Virtual Reality!

Sometimes when it rains, it pours. In a good way. At the same time I was offered the plum role of Polonius in the Shakespeare@ stage production Hamlet on the East Coast, I was also offered the role of another classic Shakespearean advisor on the West Coast: Gonzalo in The Tempest.

Making DC Comics History on Gotham

Tonight (2/28/19) in Episode 508 of Gotham on Fox, I’m back. And I’m not alone. I’m also making a bit of DC Comics history.

One such project last autumn was a short TV comedy pilot called The Genius.  I played Carlton McGibbons, the wealthy, well-meaning, and remarkably naive head of a […]

Mr. Penn Has Fans in Colorado–and China!!

When I went out to give my summer coaching intensive at Western State Colorado University this July, I wasn’t prepared for the number of Gotham fans I would meet among the students and faculty. I had a number of requests to pose for photos, and for autographs–so I had to come up with some autograph cards […]
