I'm now playing George Deever in All My Sons, the American classic and 1947 Tony winner by Arthur Miller, which opened at Barrington Stage in Pittsfield, MA last weekend. Directed by Julianne Boyd, the play runs here in the Berkshires through August 4.
My fiancée Lesley Shires is in rehearsals for the world premiere of Homestead Crossing at the nearby Berkshire Theatre Group in Stockbridge, MA. Below is an image of us at opening night.
This interview with Julianne Boyd, director of All My Sons, also has some great footage of rehearsals. Don't mind the bright blue pants; when we moved into the theater, costume designer Jen Moeller obviously had me in some different, appropriately 1940s clothes.
At the Kevin Kline awards last night, the Repertory Theatre of St. Louis production of RED won for Outstanding Production of a Play. Steven Woolf won for his direction, and Michael Ganio for his set design. For a more details, take a look at this article in the St. Louis Dispatch. Above as Ken, with Brian Dykstra as Marc Rothko.
Byron Woods of Independent Weekly in Chapel Hill, NC listed Angels in America: Perestroika at PlayMakers Repertory Best Production of 2011. Above, as Prior Walter (with Julie Fiscell as Hannah Pitt).
A few weeks ago I had a session with the photographer David Noles. I've got new headshots now, and I couldn't be happier. FInd out more about him and his work at his website: www.davidnoles.com. Take a look at some of the images from our session above.
I'm currently playing the role of Ken in a production of RED at the Repertory Theatre of St. Louis, the 2010 Tony award winner for Best Play by John Logan. The play centers around the Abstract Expressionist painter Mark Rothko (played by Brian Dykstra) and his assistant Ken as they work on his mural commission for the Seagram Building. Directed by Steven Woolf, the play runs in St. Louis until 10/2, then transfers to Cincinnati Playhouse in the Park 10/15 - 11/12.
Brian Dykstra (who plays Mark Rothko in RED) and I got up early to do a segment for KTVI FOX 2 in St. Louis. During the action of the play, we prime a huge 9'x7' canvas; on air, we helped anchor Tim Ezell paint a much smaller version. An early morning, but fun.
