Here we are. First blog entry. The name’s Larry, I’m an actor living in Chicago, but currently working at Wayside Theatre in Northern Virginia. Doing a show called God’s Man in Texas and working on a stage adaptation of The Killer Angels, an historical novel about the battle of Gettysburg. Being just an hour away from Gettysburg, it’s a show that should generate a good deal of interest. Civil War history is still quite alive around here.
We’re off to a good start. Excellent cast and a solid production staff. We worked with the guns today for the first time. We are working with period rifles – mine is dated 1863, the year of the battle. Yeah, it’s cool!
