After playing Shylock at the Shakespeare Theater of New Jersey in the spring, and Capulet in Romeo and Juliet at the Guthrie, I unexpectedly got recruited to go to the Shakespeare Theater in DC to play Sir Toby Belch. A lot of Shakespeare. For which I am grateful! But you know.
Polonius: The actors are come hither, my lord.
Hamlet: Buzz, buzz.
I’m looking forward to returning to the Old Country (NYC). And glad to say my next role will be contemporary (The Great Society at Arena Stage, after a brief stay at home). Shakespeare is indispensable to me, like air and water. But now: real pants an talking normal, thank you.
I am back in New York City, after nearly a year doing some wonderful projects outside the city: TRAVESTIES at the Bay Street Theater, THE MOUSETRAP at the Dorset theater Festival in Vermont, Touchstone in AS YOU LIKE IT in Washington, DC, and playing Bottom in A MIDSUMMER NIGHT’S DREAM at the Guthrie. It’s good to be home.

After a weird and wonderful year in Los Angeles, and a few thrilling months in Aspen (An Iliad at Aspen Fringe), Chautauqua (Clybourne Park at Chautauqua Theater Company) and Minneapolis (Uncle Vanya at the Guthrie), it is great to be back home. We found a beautiful place to live–in Inwood, overlooking the Cloisters. I found myself in a terrific production of Brecht’s A Man’s a Man at CSC. A Tennessee Williams workshop with the Acting Company. Now all we need is some warm days.
I am in Minneapolis, waiting for the first snow of the year, finishing the run of Uncle Vanya at the Guthrie Theater, in a beautiful production directed by Artistic Director Joe Dowling. It’s been a dream to play this role at this theater, with such amazing artists. Now back home to New York, and whatever adventures await.
