Jupiter Moon is the 7th full length play chosen for Panndora Prodcutions annual new works festival.  I'm really exicted about this production since it was one of my top picks of the over 200 submissions last year. 

This time out, I'm working as an executive producer on the show and I'm really I am enjoying the challenges that presents. Its always rewarding to "wear a different hat" in your chosen field.

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.
