A Feat Unprecedented in the History of Civilization…

Hi! Summer is in full swing, and I’m taking a wee break from some relative madness to send out a little update. Said madness (with method in’t) is what else but that I’m one of the three brave insane souls in the cast of The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (Abridged)! [Revised] with Advice To The Players, opening this coming Friday the 15th. But first –

I need to take a long-tardy paragraph to announce- my agent! I signed with Andrew Wilson of Andrew Wilson Agency this year. Andrew has long experience in the industry and has recently set up shop just south of Boston as a truly unique and exciting entity on the New England representation scene. I’m thrilled to be working with him and his team, and will in fact have a fun link to share of some recent commercial work aaany day now. Stay tuned! And huge thanks to AWA for a pretty sweet 2016 thus far!

Also, The Finest Hours is now available on DVD and blu-ray. Perhaps you heard it ranked one of the 25 best movies to own on DVD?

But back to the Bard! If you’ve never heard of such a thing as The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (Abridged)! [revised], here’s your nutshell: Complete Works is the absurd, irreverent, in-your-face shenanigans of three actors attempting to perform all thirty-seven (six? eight? we’re not sure) of Shakespeare’s works in a single 90-minute (ish) show. It’s for Shakespeare lovers, haters and can’t-care-lessers alike. Sonnets, skulls and props abound! Catch an outdoor show in the amphitheater of the Winnipesaukee Playhouse in Meredith, NH, or an indoor show at the town hall theatre in Center Sandwich, NH. Tickets are on sale now.

And then – from farce to mystery!

I’ll be playing Julia Simmons in Agatha Christie’s A Murder is Announced at The Barnstormers Theatre. It’s a Miss Marple mystery! I’m so excited!

However, the best news of all may be that strawberry season is here! My little Seacoast farmer’s market is hopping, and I’d be sad to miss some peak markets in August while I’m Barnstorming – except: if you know me you know Tamworth is home to my favorite farmer’s market ever. Even better than the very fancy market I once visited in the Hamptons where I tried that elegant cheese that ruined the taste of everything I ate that day. (It would seem I’m not that elegant.) Well, wherever you are it’s prime time for supporting your local farmers – and of course, your local theatre!

Happy July!
