THE WINTER'S TALE and 47TH AVENUE FILMS

This evening, a wonderful group of actors--many of whom are my classmates in Krakower-trained Vance Barber's ongoing on-camera acting class--are doing a table read of my first cutting of THE WINTER'S TALE for a film adaptation, which I hope to shoot in Oregon, in the desert (Sicilia) and on the coast (Bohemia). I have no idea from whence the $300,000 I'll need to shoot this film will come! But, so far the project is already worthwhile, as I delve deeper into an understanding of why t...

Now a PADI Divemaster

I'm now a PADI-certified Divemaster and Assistant Instructor Candidate. "Divemaster" is a professional certification allowing me to lead certified divers on dives, instruct refresher courses, and assist in teaching Open Water Diver courses. I started the Divemaster program for two reasons: 1) to become a better diver and 2) be prepared to manage the challenges and risks of diving on film sets at which water scenes are being shot.

The Blacklist, "Anna-Garcia Duerte" Ep 517 – Coogan Hudnutt!

I had a great time on set in the small but wonderfully named character, "Coogan Hudnutt." There was a lot of action packed into my short time on screen: I held a shotgun, ran from the hero, had a  scene with James Spader, had my mugshot up in the 'War Room,' was badmouthed by the series' regulars, and was tortured--on the rack--all in about a minute of screen time. My first appearance on network episodic tv was incredibly fun and fulfilling. I look forward to doing mor...

The Blacklist, airing April 4th, 2018

I'm super pleased to say that I'll be on THE BLACKLIST, episode 517, "Anna Gracia-Duerte," on April 4th, 2018. I play the small role of the tantalizingly named "Coogan Hudnutt." This is my network tv premiere and I couldn't be happier about it! THE BLACKLIST is a mammoth enterprise, shot both in cavernous studios and on location, so there's no slack in the day.

Next Up: Houston Workshop, late August

I'll be in Houston during the last week of August to do a workshop and staged reading that we'll perform on the evening of Monday, September 5th. It's a play that's been around a long time, that I once understudied and have always wanted to do, and which a wonderfully talented faculty member at the UH Dept. of Theatre and Dance thought would be worth working on in her 'copious free time' at the top of the semester.

Successful Productions in DC and Prague!

The Alliance for New Music-Theatre put up a successful production of Havel's PROTEST this May in Washington, D.C., in the Dupont Underground's new art and performance space, underneath Dupont Circle. Our audiences, which were in no small part engaged actively in present day politics--either through jobs or simply by exposure as DC residents--were alive to Havel's character study of a man attempting to retain his privileges under a watchful totalitarian state while finding (not entire...

Upcoming Projects for 2017

Happy New Year!Much of my business in the last quarter of 2016 was personal--including getting settled as a New Yorker again (my mailing address and home for much of the month is in NYC, now, but I still spend considerable time each month in Washington, DC, where I work with The Alliance for New Music-Theatre) and making progress on writing projects--so I haven't posted. But, a New Year has dawned, and I have a couple of projects booked:This winter, I'll be on set for a couple of days on...
