Derek Long performs in a new play, Sweet Texas Reckoning, that premiered this week at The Garage Theatre in Long Beach, CA. In a recent OC Register review, Eric Marchese said: "Long’s A.J. is a rambunctious good-old-boy with an irrepressible love of life, but when the scenario he desires begins to slip from his grasp, he shows surprising wellsprings of affection and dignity."

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.
