I’ll be starring in the 10-minute play “Two Out of Five” directed by Cindy Marie Jenkins (Voices From Chornobyl) and written by Jonas Oppenheim (Earth Sucks, A Cosmic Rock Musical). It co-stars Abby Wilde (Zoey 101). I play a self-obsessed wordsmith who writes pretentious restaurant reviews online as a way to express himself. Abby plays the women I pine after.
The piece is part of the debut production of Moveable Piece, which sneaks theatre performances into unconventional spaces in Los Angeles. This show will take place at the Mandrake Bar & Gallery in Culver City on Monday, March 30 at 7 PM.
See you there!

Here’s a little preview of what sort of oddities you’ll experience at Drama After Dark: A Night of the Macabre with Poe & Gorey:
This is from Edward Gorey’s The Listing Attic, which is full of characters that range from murderous to lecherous to just plain peculiar. It is one of five Gorey stories we’ll be performing on October 18th at The Huntington starting at 6 PM. More details here.
Tickets are selling out fast, if they aren’t already, so call 626-405-2128 to make reservations. I hope you’ll be able to make it.

I’ll be performing portions of Edward Gorey scenes for a Halloween show at The Huntington on Saturday, October 18.
It’s a great show where you get to walk around and watch multiple shows of material by Gorey and Edgar Allen Poe. It’s a unique Halloween experience that’s been playing at The Huntington for 6 years. I’m very excited to be a part of it. I hope you can make it out! I’m told this event sells out every year, so be sure to call for tickets.
