Wow, was this a great experience with The Piven Theatre Workshop.  I played angry and bitter father Clyde Percy.  Best serious part I have played to date thanks to Mikalina Rabinsky director.   She really guided me to a great performance with my on stage wife Stephanie Monday who played Marybeth Percy.   She was the easiest person to act with onstage and was fantastic.  More later.

'via Blog this'

Hello Blog, remember me?   Goal in 2016 is to crank this up again.    Had my best live theater adventure ever last weekend and saw three shows.    THE FLICK at Steppenwolf.  My kind of show with super long "real" Pauses.  Added up to three hours of show.  Yikes.  I saw the movie theater set swept up about 8 times by the cast.  Wow.      There were silences in that show to challenge even Pinter Pauses.   I bet they had to count to themselves offstage in order to not go on too fast.   Now I have to read the script.  Oh there it is---been on my shelf for about a year.

Saw Godspell and another show about the Holocaust.    One more week and then DEAD MAN WALKING starts to rehearsing.   Really excited, saw an interview with Tim Robbins last night.  He's my age.  Ugh.  Done a few more things than me, but can't worry about it.

How to Warm up in Public

When I see posts like this I really love to pass them on to fellow actors.  This one is by a vocal coach Andrew Byrne in New York that shows you how to warm up in public.  Really simple but great.

This is the kind of content along with personal milestones that I want to put in my blog. If you want to stay up to date with them, please subscribe to it.

Scene From BIG HEAT filmed for University of Chicago

I was asked to film a scene from the Film Noir Classic  BIG SLEEP for a group of students from University of Chicago.  It was hosted by DePaul Film School where they recreated the set, which was a big surprise for me and fellow actor Guy Wicke. It was a lot of fun and I played the Lieutenant who scolds Glen Ford's character for hassling a cop's widow.
