New Artwork is Here

Once again, lucky enough to be working with the very talented Ryan de Quintal on the latest project. He's done design work in the past for us on "Of Mice and Men" and "Dog's Pond". He hit another one out of the (race) park here!

I love his ability to capture the emotional essence of our productions using seemingly simple, bold imagery within a suggestive, resptrained palette. Join us Sundays, March 24th ...

Coming to the Wildfire Theater

This Spring I'll be back at the fantastic Wildfire Theater directing one of Sam Sheppard's comedic plays. If you aren't already familiar with Simpacito, I urge you to come out to Sherman Oaks and enjoy this exploration of American angst turned into high (and lowbrow) comedy. We'll be up and running in April. Stay tuned for all the details!

A great actor is generous. They're in tune with themselves physically and emotionally. They come to terms with nerves, and work with it. They are present on stage, and they give themselves completely to the other actors, who are able to give back to them. There is give and take. The story is told, and there is total connection with the audience.
