Or Life Will reading

This weekend I'll be a part of a reading of Or Life Will, a new play by A. Jacks. Hosted by The Playground Experiment, Or Life Will is part of a day long festival of new plays receiving their first public presentation. Think of it as a glimpse into the rehearsal and development process! This show also features the immense talents of Brad Makarowski, David Michael Kirby, Karina Richardson, Kirsten Hopkins, Manning Jordan, Starr Kirkland, and Ysabel Jasa.

The evening is hosted at Think Coffee on Mercer Street in the Greenwich Village at 7pm and will feature parts of 5 other plays in various stages of development.

Got This! Wins Best Ensemble

Back on August 14 Got This! screened at the Brightside Tavern Short Film Fest and was nominated for a bunch of awards including myself for Best Actor - Comedy, my good friend Emily Pantalone for Best Actress - Comedy, Susan Barry for Best Director - Comedy, and the whole film for Best Comedy and Best Local Film.

I'm also thrilled to hear that our little army of actors WON the award for Best Ensemble at the festival!

Working with such a large cast of varying ages and experience was what really made the process a joy. It was so fun to see members of the community come together every day to make this piece possible. Congratulations to all!
