Galway Arts Festival
Town Hall Theatre
About three months after "Chapatti" closed in Skokie, IL, it will transfer across the waves for a production at the famous Galway Arts Festival in Ireland.
This will be my second show for the Festival, having performed in the Galway production of Northlight's "Stella and Lou" just last year. The festival, the city and of course the country are a sight to behold especially in July.
More about this production will be included as our departure draws nearer.
Northlight Theatre at Galway Arts Festival, 2013
Northlight Theatre was fortunate to have this regular season production transfer over to Galway, Ireland. Rhea Perlman was not available, so I covered her role acting opposite Francis Guinan and Ed Flynn from the original production.
After rehearsing briefly in Chicago, we were whisked off to Ireland for a week's run. Stella and Lou was part of the famous Galway Arts Festival line-up. Days of diverse and interesting arts performances, many of which I explored when not performing myself. An incredible experience all the way around.

St. Louis Repertory Theatre
My third time around with Mrs. Dashwood, in Jon Jory's adaptation and production of this beloved Jane Austen novel.
Our St. Louis version has some cast members from previous productions at Chicago's Northlight Theatre and The Actors Theater of Louisville. As it turns out, I'm the only actor who's appeared in all three incarnations, and its been a real delight
And one little scene of romance ...
