Cheaper by the Dozen – The Trailer

Looks like my little karaoke shenanigans from last weekend have paid off. A few days ago, I booked a gig* to film a trailer for The Gateway Players’ ‘Cheaper by the Dozen‘ – which opens next Friday April 5th at 7:30 pm. We shot it this morning. I edited this afternoon and premiered the final…

Rediscovering The Lost World

True confession time. For a brief spell this Summer – and not so long ago – I thought long and hard about NOT bringing ‘The Lost World’ to life. Pulling it all together from the ground up – in the purest independent spirit possible – felt equal parts liberating AND terrifying!!! Sure, I’ve got the…

The Lost World Auditions ~ 8/12

It’s high time we got this show on the road… and I need all the help I can get from my good friends and acquaintances. I thought writing this thing was the hard part BUT that’s nothing compared to the Herculean task of bringing it to the stage this November. But like everything, nothing is…

Forty for Forty – #4. Once More With Feeling

Editor’s Note:   The Mayans say the Earth will end on December 12, 2012. I  turn 40 on June 6th of the same year. I say I’ve got them beat by 6 months and 6 days. As a little challenge to myself, I came up with this year-long project. Forty for Forty is my bid to…

Pan Handler

“The show’s major drawback is Humphries’ straightjacketed performance as Jon. He huffs and puffs from one scene to the next with unvarying gesture and intonation, unable to take his character beyond a blandly drawn portrait of frustrated agitation, even though one senses he’s grasping to do so. “ That’s the review I woke up to…

What A Drag!!!

Frequent readers of my site know that over the last couple of years, I have set out to try and challenge myself each year with something outside the norm of my daily nine-to-five. It seems like I wasted a major chunk of my Twenties and Thirties immersed in a whole helluva’ lot of entertainment and…

Behind the Curtain: The Completely Unauthorized, Mostly 100% True, Shocking Expose of ‘One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest’

Show’s over folks. There’s nothing more to see here. That is unless you’ve been left lingering for some truly titillating tales from back stage. If that’s your bent than you came to the right place. Now that I’m off contract, I have no qualms about letting y’all in on the back stage secrets behind South…

‘Nest’ Nuts Net 5 Ed Heads

As that Variety-esque headline screams, the reviews are in. “I hope you take this as a compliment… I really HATED you!!!” – Random Audience Member #1 “You’re a complete bastard!!!” – Random Audience Member #2 “As your mother, the woman who played a major role in your conception, I can only wonder – where did…

Method Man

Editor’s Note – Yes, my Photoshop skills are quite lacking in this pic but I couldn’t find a proper match of any of my headshots with any stills from the film. I actually think the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade float motif I’ve got going here works well enough for a laugh. Looks like the Acting…
