Wednesday, June 29th I’ll be singing in a concert paying homage the Neil Simon Theatre, the place I made my Bway debut in Big Fish. It’s the same theatre where Grandpa Keith played Joe Dynamite in Wildcat with Lucille Ball in 1960, so to honor both him and the theatre, I’ll be singing one of Grandpa’s songs from Wildcat. Hope to see some friends there!
This one was fun! Got to play The Antichrist in Lory Lazarus’s musical Attack of the Elvis Impersonators. Once again, we had just a few days to rehearse and get this thing up on it’s feet, and it went great. Worked with some fantastic people and had a blast.
Played Duke in Boomerang Theatre Company’s recent workshop of their Bluegrass musical Loveless Texas, loosely based on Shakespeare’s Love’s Labor’s Lost. Check out the press release. Worked with some amazing people, and put the thing on it’s feet in just a few days. Hope to see more of this show in the future!
Booked a great VO gig for Planet Fitness. The spot can be seen HERE
Had a great time playing Eddie in this production. In just over two weeks we fully staged it, choreo and all. Couldn’t have done it without this group of people, some of the best I’ve ever worked with. Huge gratitude to Andrew Lippa for bringing me on at the last minute, and to Leigh Silverman for making it all happen.
On December 4th at 8pm, tune into NBC! I will be playing Admirable Crichton on Peter Pan, Live!
Also, check out some of the leather and metalwork I was hired to do for the show. Not a bad gig when you get to do two of the things you love most – make stuff out of leather and put on a wig and dance like a pirate. Not bad at all.
Last night was an auspicious night – It marked the opening of Kiss Me, Kate at the New London Barn Playhouse in NH.
In 1949, Grandpa Keith stepped into the role of Fredric C. Graham (pictured in ’49 with Anne Jeffreys), replacing Alfred Drake, and finishing out the run of the original Broadway production. Last night I had the honor and privilege of stepping into Fred’s shoes for the first time in my career, and pay homage to the old man.
