Just finished RAGTIME at American Stage (14 May 2023). What an incredible show. What an incredible cast. What an incredible experience PERIOD!! It's been a couple of decades since I worked at Equity-affiliated theatres and I have to admit that I don't remember experiencing the same kind of warmth, generosity, creativity, and grace as I experienced at this very special company. The camaraderie and spirit of play ran deep with this cast and crew!
I had the time of my life playing Grandfather (long story here...American Stage may be woke, but I was originally offered the role of GrandMOTHER hahaha!) along with 8 other characters, 3 of whom were actually female.
Luckily, there will be no time for the post-production blues...I am already diving into my next project directing the summer theatre camps at Central Park Performing Arts in Largo, Florida. I am also preparing to audition for " The Chinese Lady", my new obsession!
