Catching Up With Broadway!

Wow. The last Broadway show we saw before lockdown was The Minutes (with the original cast). That was March of 2020. Between the pandemic (and two cases of covid myself) and my being out of town a lot in 2022 performing, my husband and I had not taken the plunge and returned to seeing Broadway shows. …

A Tribute to Frank Galati

I woke today to the news that the great artist and lovely human Frank Galati has passed. In the Asolo Repertory Theatre’s 2013-14 season, Frank directed me in a gorgeously detailed PHILADELPHIA, HERE I COME! In the rehearsal room with Frank, every word, every silence, every image, and everyone’s input mattered. He wept a lot. …

Farewell 2022, Welcome 2023!

Last year, aka 2022, was really had on a lot of people–including many of us in the arts. For me, the year included a show closed due to covid, a second case of covid for me (and first for Tim) from that production, and a lot of stress around covid testing for two more shows …

Farewell to the Fabulous Forum!

All good things must come to an end, sadly. Our hilarious production of Sondheim’s A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum closes today after delighting audiences and critics alike. Below are some swell images by Jason Nuttle Photography. Huge thanks again to the one and only Jen Werner, our utterly fantastic director, Caryl …

A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum Opens Tonight!

Gosh, I’ve been so busy rehearsing I haven’t had time to post here about our great production at the fabulous (and gorgeously expanded) Maltz Jupiter Theatre in Jupiter, FL. But I’m so excited to announce the opening of our hilarious (and tuneful!) production of Sondheim’s classic A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum!! …

I Performed in the Inaugural Season of the Playground-NY New Play Festival

I love it when one job leads to another in this business. And I’m grateful that it’s happened a lot for me over my career. Some years back, I performed in a new play for writer Sam Affoumado. In fall of 2021, I got an email from Sam that he was taking part in the …

New Play “The Finalist”: One Performance Only!

On Sunday, March 27th, I’ll be appearing in TADA’s Emerging Artists New Works Series. Talented playwright and director Sam Affoumado has asked me to take on his surrogate role of The Playwright in his new 20-minute comedy The Finalist, about a disgruntled playwright’s confrontation with two theatre interns who make the mistake of rejecting his script! …

Another Hit Production of “The 39 Steps”–10 Years Later!!

I’ve been lucky enough to be so busy performing that I’m just now catching up with doing some blog posts. For up-to-date info on my activities, I hope you’ll check out my Instagram and/or Twitter accounts: @AndrewSellon After the early closure of Carousel due to covid cases, I went straight into rehearsals for a production of …

A Brief and Thrilling Ride on Rodgers and Hammerstein’s “Carousel”

I finished 2021 and started 2022 back working at my beloved Riverside Theatre in Vero Beach, playing Billy Bigelow’s Heavenly Friend in Rodgers and Hammerstein’s classic musical Carousel. It’s a lovely little role–HF is the buddy Billy needed but didn’t have when he was alive back on earth; he’s the antithesis of the self-serving and …

Giants in The Sky: Remembering Stephen Sondheim

While I know he was 91 years old, I belong to the huge legion of Stephen Sondheim fans who secretly hoped he would never, ever die, and that his unique creative voice would never fall silent. And now it has. The loss is inestimable, incalculable–and now we have no one to come up with clever …
