Website Update

October 28, 2009

I’m still here and still alive, but being offline at home has changed my e-life significantly.

Despite that, my acting website got an overhaul thanks to my big brother who just felt like playing around with it.  Thanks bro.

He’s also done a few sites for his automotive businesses and interests.  Have a gander at

To The Nines

September 9, 2009

I have no internet at home right now so my blogging time is limited. Not sure when I’ll be up and running again.

But I had to recognize today being 09/09/09. Nine is my lucky number. Lottery ticket anyone?

Doug Wilder – Speed Reader

July 14, 2009

This is old news, but I just found out about it.  A guy I know made a big splash in Congress a few months ago:

Rachel Maddow Interviews The Congressional “Speed Reader”

Doug and I worked together at Wayside Theatre in Virginia, and now he is working in the DC area.  I just did a show with Matt Eisenberg, who Doug refers to in the interview.  That’s how I found out about it.

Wild.  And Wilder.

And Hello Again Again

June 4, 2009

After a few months off, it’s time to return to the blog.  So hello again!

It was hard to get back in the swing of things.  The move from Virginia and from Wayside really threw me for a loop.  After being so firmly and comfortably established there, going somewhere else made me feel like a Freshman again.  I thought I was too old to feel like that.  Apparently not.

That said, I’m feeling fairly settled in to what will be my home for the summer.

Totem Pole PlayhouseI’m writing to you now from my temporary digs in Fayetteville, PA, where I’m working at Totem Pole Playhouse.  They are celebrating their 59th season of producing, so the theater has a very rich history.  This stage has seen the likes of Jean Stapleton, John Ritter and Mary Tyler Moore to name a few.

We are currently performing a remount of Wayside’s Cotton Patch Gospel, and it seems to be going over fairly well here…despite a few walkouts.

This is a modern-day retelling of the book of Matthew and some folks are just not ready to have their Gospel reinterpreted.  To some, what we are doing is sacrilegious.  I have some  strong feelings about that, but I think that may be for another post.

Anyway, it’s nice to be back in the blogsaddle again.  This time around I may not be posting every day.  That got to be a bit much.  I’ll try to come here when I actually have something to say.

And I’ll come here on Fridays.  So we can all dance.

See you tomorrow.

Hello Again

May 5, 2009

Had a bit of internet time, so I thought I would check in.  Had a wonderful time out west and am now enjoying a short stay in Chicago.

Soon it will be to Pennsylvania and the next adventure.

Goodbye For Now

April 27, 2009

Well, most of my stuff is packed and my time in Northern Virginia is drawing to a close.  It has been wonderful, and I’m better for having been here.

I’ll be at Totem Pole in a few weeks, and will be traveling a bit until then.  This means that I may not be able to update the blog for awhile.  Not sure.

I will try and Tweet from my phone every so often.  Again, you can find my Twitter feed on the side bar, or you can follow me here.

Thanks to all of you who visited this little blog of ramblings.  I’ll definitely be back to it in the middle of May.

Oh and if you miss the Friday Dance Party, check out Armchair Actorvist, my friend R. Scott’s blog.  I think his is better!

Cotton Patch – Closed. For Now.

April 26, 2009

So much is happening, but there’s no time to write about it.  Isn’t that always the way?

We closed Cotton Patch Gospel yesterday with two really strong shows.  The end of that show signified quite a few milestones.  It was the end of Wayside’s 47th season, it was the end of Warner’s 10th season as Artistic Director, it was the last show for our current intern company and it was my last Wayside show as a resident actor.

I think that covers all of the ends and lasts.  Now for some beginnings.

In a few weeks, we will take this production up to Totem Pole Playhouse.  Having that production to look forward to did help take away a little of yesterday’s melancholy

Of course a new intern company will arrive shortly and the 48th season will begin in earnest with Man of LaMancha.

But as they prepare for that, I will keep packing getting ready for my own next chapter.
