Site Update

New Film – How To Meet A Girl!

Hello all. Crazy times huh? As many theater people have experienced in the past few weeks, the Coronavirus situation took a toll last month on our opening of Puffs. While we were lucky enough to get one weekend, we sadly had to cancel our last several shows. While it’s of course disheartening that I didn’t get a full run with our new cast, I count myself very lucky to have not only gotten the show in front of some great crowds, but that I got to take the journey with so many amazing people at Wolf Pack Theatre Company.

However, bad news leaves room for good: I have a new film to share with you! Brought to you from the good people at Shrug Productions, please enjoy the full film How To Meet A Girl. This film was made for the World Film Challenge 2020 and we made it to a finalist screening, so I can’t say how proud I am of it and the crew involved. You can view it both here and on my videos page.

Enjoy!


A Christmas Carol – Pay What You Can

As Christmas comes just around the corner, our friends at Wolf Pack Theatre Company want you to join us for the second and final weekend of A Christmas Carol. And as an early gift to you, Thursday’s performance is pay what you can! Come with whatever you have in your pocket to enjoy our tribute to the Dickens classic. Dates are on my Calendar and you can buy tickets for our other performance dates here.

I’ve also added a few extra production photos in my Media center here. Enjoy, and hopefully I’ll see you at the show!


Long Time No See

Hello all. It’s been a long time since I’ve posted an update on my site here. While I have been adding a few things here and there on the site, I didn’t seem necessary to add a whole new update. But in the time since my goodbye to Bobby Heenan, I’ve been doing some film work with Shrug Productions (Extra Shiny and Buzz now available in my videos section) and was fortunate enough to be featured in the Washington DC regional premiere of Puffs with Landless Theatre Company. I’ve included new pictures, videos, reviews and other goodies that you can find in the links in the top bar. More fun stuff is in the works, so hopefully I can post more news as it comes.

Don’t worry, I’ll make sure we don’t wait such a long stretch before we see each other again.


Requiem for a Weasel: Saying Goodbye To Bobby “The Brain” Heenan

On Sunday, the world lost the greatest manager and color commentator in the history of professional wrestling: Bobby “The Brain” Heenan. If you’ve paid attention to my Facebook or Twitter feed, it shouldn’t come as a surprise that I’m a fan of the business. However, I can say without question that no other person in wrestling and very few in the world of comedy and acting have had as drastic an impression on my life as “The Brain”. I’ve written a new blog post (the first in years, how about that?) about just what Bobby meant to me. If you’re at all curious, or if you’re a fan of Bobby yourself, take a few minutes to give it a read here. I hope it comes off as a fitting tribute from a lowly humanoid to an icon.


Pictures and Review for Silver Spring Stage One Act Festival

Hello friends. First of all, I want to give a huge thanks to everyone who made it out to Silver Spring for our One Act Festival last weekend. We had a fantastic turn out and some very energetic crowds. Always proud and happy to perform for my friends and family. To close out the great weekend, I’m happy to share some pictures and a review from the show. First of all, here’s a few pictures that were taken by the talented Harvey Levine:

You can check out the rest of the pictures from Six Seven Three Twenty and Alternate Theory, along with pictures from all of my other shows, here on my Photos page.

I’m also proud to share a nice write-up we got from DC Metro Theater Arts for our weekend. Here’s an excerpt:

“Adam Adkins plays Mike O’Sullivan, the assistant to it seems everyone and is probably the most likable character. Adkins hits the mark by straddling the fence between Gary and Doug and the Coach.”

Not a bad little nod. Feel free to read the full review here or view the rest of my press clippings here on my site. Also, the One Act Festival continues for the next two weekends. Not with me, sadly, but with many of my friends and fellow craftspeople. Please make sure to show your love and support by planning your trip to the festival here.

So that’s all for now, my dear friends. But make sure to come back and visit soon, as art never stops coming.


Welcome Home – Full Film Available Online!

Hi gang. First of all, huge thanks to everyone who came out to see Welcome Home and the rest of the films for the 48 Hour Film Project. We had a great turnout and I saw a lot of familiar faces there giving their support to all of the fantastic entries in the festival. Time will tell if we snag any well-deserved awards, but until then, I’m happy to announce that Shrug Productions has posted the full film on Youtube! In case you weren’t able to make it to the premiere on Saturday, please enjoy the video below. I couldn’t be happier with how it turned out.

The video, along with the behind the scenes featurette, have been added to my Videos page along with screen grabs to my Pictures page.

I’ll be back later this week with some more updates, but until then, enjoy the film!


Huge Site Updates and Upcoming Projects

Hello Friends. It’s been a minute since I’ve updated my site here. In fact, it’s been over two years. How many minutes is that exactly? 60x24x…I don’t know, I already lost interest. But it’s been quite a while, anyway.

Theater has been my passion for over a decade. However, no matter how much you love something, you sometimes need a break. After doing 10 projects within a year (including directing 3 of them), I officially suffered burn out. For the first time in a long time, I needed to put a little distance between myself and performing. Within that time I did occasional staged readings and smaller projects, but mostly my time was filled with nights to myself and hiking on the weekends.

However, I’m happy to say that I’m officially back in business.

To celebrate my return, I’ve made some long-needed updates to my website. I’ve entirely redone my Pictures and added new ones from more recent shows, including new headshots. I also updated my Videos page with a lot of new content from various projects with Molotov Theatre Group and some promotional voice overs I recorded for the company Feith. The Bios and Resumés have also been brought up to date with the occasional projects I was involved in within the past few years. And as you can see from above, I finally updated my website banner image to something more current. The hair and goatee has been transformed to a beard and a freshly shaved head.

Along with the site updates, I’m proud to announce the projects that have brought me back to performing. Firstly, this Saturday at 7:30 is the screening for the 48 Hour Film Festival. I was fortunate enough to work with Shrug Productions on a short called Welcome Home, which will be premiering at the festival. In it I play an assassin who moves into his new apartment, only to be haunted by the ghosts of his past. Tickets can be purchased here for the one-night-only showing.

After that, I’ll be back on the stage as part of Silver Spring Stage’s One Act Festival. I was fortunate enough to work on this project a few years ago with Brian M. Doyle’s The Navigator, which netted me an acting award from the festival. This time I’m doing two shows in the same night. I’ll be doing another Brian M. Doyle play called Alternate Theory, which takes a different view of the JFK Assassination. On the same night, I will also be performing in Jacy D’Aituolo’s play Six Seven Three Twenty which takes a behind-the-scenes look at a struggling football team on draft day. Both plays are a lot of fun and I’m excited to get them in front of an audience. As soon as tickets come available, I’ll make sure to post the link. You can find more information, as well as time and dates, on my Calendar page.

So that’s all for now. It’s great to be back doing what I love and keeping you all informed on this site. Hopefully I’ll have more fun stuff to update this site with soon, so make sure to check back when you can.

Until then, see you from the stage.


The Margins Promo Shots & Tickets On Sale!

Hello dear readers. I’m happy to share a little Margins hype with you  today. Yesterday the very talented Kristin Jackman stopped by our rehearsal in order to take some promo shots for us. I picked out a choice few that I enjoyed the most and put them on my Pictures page. Please feel free to visit and give the album a look. But just to wet your whistle, check out a sample shot below.

Margins-5

 

That’s a mean looking crew of ghost hunters. Tickets are still on sale but going fast. Our last show, Nightfall with Edgar Allen Poe, was sold out each night we performed. So I wouldn’t dilly dally with reserving your seats. Please visit our tickets page to order now. Or for the more frugal minded we still have some seats available for half-price on Goldstar.

Until the next update, in which I may have something else to get you excited…


The Margins Tickets Are On Sale, Brian Williams Video and Molotov’s Carolina Reaper Challenge This Thursday Night!

Hello dear readers. I have some good news that I want to share with everyone. First of all, I’m happy to announce that tickets for The Margins with Molotov Theatre Group are officially on sale! We just started rehearsals last week and this is going to be a good one. For more information, please feel free to check out my Calendar, our Facebook Event Page or our ticket site. Our last show, Nightfall with Edgar Allen Poe, sold out for every single performance. We were turning them away at the door, so make sure that you get your tickets early.

Secondly, this Thursday will be the Molotov Carolina Reaper Challenge & Film Screening. Company members Alex & Yoni will be eating two (yes, two) Carolina Reapers while we mess with them. We will also be screening the Vincent Price classic House on Haunted Hill and holding our own Iron Stomach Challenge, where you can step up and see if you have what it takes to consume a Ghost Pepper, the hottest naturally occurring pepper in the world. This is my first event as Molotov’s Special Event Coordinator and I’m incredibly excited for this. Make sure to check out our Indiegogo campaign and our Facebook event to see how you can be a part of this insane night. Keep in mind, we’re only $300 away from me doing something terrible to myself that night as well. So keep those donations coming!

Finally, I recently shot a short web video with local filmmakers Chris Sheridan and Patty Kim about the Brian Williams controversy. It turns out that this has opened the door for a lot of other newscasters out there to admit to their mistakes. Take a look at the video below to see yours truly apologize for his gaffs, and check out my Videos page to see the rest of my blunders.


Molotov’s Carolina Reaper Challenge!

Hello friends. I’m happy to announce that as Molotov Theatre Group’s Special Event Coordinator, we finally have a date and time set for our next fundraiser! The first in a series of our Screenings, Stunts & Spirits series, we will be hosting a movie night and pepper eating challenge on February 26th at Johnny Pistolas starting at 7:00 pm. At the event, we’ll be having our members Alex Zavistovich and Yoni Gray eating the hottest pepper on the planet: The Carolina Reaper. How long they go without relief depends on how much money we raise. We only launched the event 2 days ago and we’ve already raised $698! That means that they’ll be going a whole ten minutes before they get sweet satisfaction. And if we reach our goal of $1000, they’ll eat another pepper at that ten minute mark! We’re already planning stretch goals, so keep an eye out for whatever dumb and painful stuff we can have these guys do.

We will also be hosting our Iron Stomach challenge. If you think you have what it takes, a $20 donation at the door will get you entered into a competition with eating a Ghost Pepper. Whoever goes the longest without relief will win a Molotov Prize Pack including two tickets to The Margins running through April.

Finally, the night will close with a screening of the Vincent Price classic House on Haunted Hill. The classic ghost story will get everyone in the mood for our own ghost story The Margins.

Tickets are Pay What You Can at the door with a suggest donation of $20. All the proceeds will be going to Molotov Theatre Group in order to continue to bring you awesome theater and dumb stunts like this.

To donate to this worthy cause, please visit the Indiegogo page. Or to mark the date and time of the event, please visit my Calendar page or check out our Facebook event. Hope to see you there! But in the meantime, enjoy our promo video:


A New Blog Post For Riding The Washington Metro!

Two blog posts in a matter of weeks? What can I say, I have time. Today’s post is about a subject that’s near and dear to anyone’s heart who lives around the DC Metro area. No, not the State of the Union or why or Chinatown is only one block. I’m talking about our fine Metro system! I realize outsiders traveling to our fair city are likely puzzled by our unique system, so I thought I would help everyone out with a Beginner’s Guide. If you need to know how to tackle that escalator or curious as to why your cell phone doesn’t work in the tunnel, please check it out here! Feel free to send some feedback, share it around, etc. I write these for you. And my boredom. But mainly for my boredom.

While you’re at it, make sure to check out my other blog posts dedicated to the underlying depression found in terrible snack foods, why men fear feminists and the quality of Hulk Hogan cartoons. I promise you, I’m quite clever.

Also as a sidebar, I took the time to reformat each of these blog posts to make them easier to read. You’re nice enough to read this drivel, you don’t deserve eye strain on top of it. Right?


A New Blog Post About My Discovery Of Doritos Loaded!

Hello all.

After more than 6 months of silence, I’m happy to say that I was finally able to get the time to write a new blog post. This is much lighter than my last one about #YesAllWomen (though considering how the world has been shaping for the past few months, don’t be shocked if another semi-serious one comes around). This isn’t about violence or sexism or racism. No, this jolly post is about despair. Specifically, it’s about the existential despair found in terrible snack foods.

The Dali Lama once said “Happiness is not something ready made. It comes from your own actions.” This is further proof that the Dali Lama has never eaten food from a 7-11. To read about my soul’s wrestling match with insulting snack flavors, click here!

Feel free to read, comment, share, what have you. And please, do enjoy my misery. If enough people enjoy it, maybe I’ll write about something else I put in my mouth. Also, if you haven’t before, make sure to read my posts about why men are so defensive about misogyny and a terrible wrestling cartoon from the 80’s. I promise you, they’re quite good.


DC Metro Theater Arts’ Best Directors of 2014

Hello all. Just wanted to give a quick update from a little bit of awesomeness.

For the past few weeks DC Metro Theater Arts has been listing their picks for the Best of 2014, and there have been honors for both Nightfall and God of Carnage.  Specifically actors Elliot Kashner, Jen Bevan, Stacy Whittle & director Mark Kaime have been listed for Nightfall and my entire cast for God of Carnage (Alyssa Sanders, Andy Greenleaf, Bob Harbaum & Lauren Kieler) have all been specifically mentioned. And I’m happy to say that I got my own listing as one of the Best Directors of 2014 for God of Carnage! A huge thanks again to my cast, producer/stage manager Bob Scott, my designers Star Johnson & Nathaniel Collard and Silver Spring Stage. Feel free to read it yourself here or check out the rest of the reviews for God of Carnage and Nightfall here.

Until next time, kids.


The Margins In 2015 & New Pictures From Nightfall and Saving Private Poo!

Hello friends. Another year has ended and I couldn’t have possibly been busier. Throughout 2014 I performed in 5 plays (Morning, Miranda, The Narrow Gate, Saving Private Poo, Nightfall and A Klingon Christmas Carol) and directed 4 more (God of Carnage, The Scottish Detective, Cosmetic Consciousness and Gallery). I got to do some more background work for Veep, filmed some industrials with FJC Media, shot a short film and joined Molotov Theatre Group as their Special Events Coordinator and a company member. All in all, it’s been an excitingly exhausting year and I’m proud of everything and everyone I’ve gotten to work with. However, as the year closes, we look forward to 2015 with a brand new project. The Margins will be debuting with Molotov in April. The story centers around a group of psychics who are brought together to create a spirit, similar to the famous Phillip Experiment in the 1970s. However, once they bring their powers together, they discover that their creation is stronger than even they can imagine. It’s a creepy script, likely made all the creepier by us at Molotov. Expect some splatter with this one, kids. For more information, check out Molotov’s page here.

I also have a bit of a site update, as I was finally able to add pictures from both Nightfall and Saving Private Poo. Both sets came out pretty awesomely and you can check them out on my Pictures page here. Here’s just a little sample:

Night

Why yes, I am insane. Thank you so much for asking.

That’s about all for now, my dear readers. In the meantime, make sure to mark your calendars for The Margins, and hopefully I’ll see you there.


Nightfall With Edgar Allen Poe is Helen Hayes Recommended & More!

Great news for us Molotov Theatre Group people: Nightfall with Edgar Allen Poe has been Helen Hayes recommended! That’s pretty awesome news. Almost as awesome as all of the great press and audience feedback we’ve received. Here’s a snippet of our review from DC Theater Metro Arts:

“Adam R. Adkins plays the aloof Roderick Usher. His spooky charm and excellent mad laugh deserves kudos. Adkins also has the tongue-in-cheek style of performance down pat.”

Well, I can certainly play a convincing psychopath. Feel free to read the rest of the review here or check out all of my mentions on my Press page. If you’re planning on joining us for our next two weekends, make sure to get your tickets soon. Every show we’ve had so far has either been sold out or damn near close. Reserve your tickets at Molotov’s website here.

Finally, I’m happy to announce that I got the chance again yesterday to shoot with HBO’s Veep. I always have a great time whenever I get the chance to shoot for that show and yesterday was no different. There’s some big surprises that I can’t talk about in Season 4 that I can’t wait for people to see. I’ll make sure to be keeping everyone updated on when you can spot me behind some big names coming up soon. Until then, see you at Nightfall!


The Scottish Detective Closes & New Videos and Resumes Are Posted!

Another closing, another show. Last night marked the closing night of the 2014 Hope Operas and specifically my show The Scottish Detective. A huge thanks to Amy Baska, Steve Custer, Devin Gaither, Bethanie Harmon, Eric Swartz and my entire cast for all of their dedication and hard work. The Hope Operas is always a fun time and I’m glad that I could be involved again this year with such a great cause.

Along with those closing statements, I’m happy to announce some new additions to the website! Firstly, I’ve added a couple of videos over at my Videos page. Included is a scene from a recent industrial film I shot with FJC Media and a documentary I shot and edited about my father’s 5 day hitchhike across the country back in 1979. You can see them both below, or at my Videos page here:

 

 

Along with new videos, I also have updated resumés for both my acting and directing. They can be viewed on my Resumé & Bio page here.

That’s about all for now. Tech week starts on Sunday for Molotov’s production of Nightfall with Edgar Allen Poe. Tickets are already selling impressively quickly, so make sure to reserve yours here. See you at the theater!


God of Carnage Closes, The Scottish Detective Runs Through October & a Trailer and Tickets For Nightfall!

Things continue to roll along, friends. First of all, let’s start with the past. Two weeks ago was the closing night performance of God of Carnage. The entire process was an absolute pleasure and I couldn’t have asked for a better cast and crew through the process. Much gratitude goes to Silver Spring Stage for giving me the opportunity to strut my stuff to very receptive audiences. I can’t wait for my next project with them, whatever it may be.

Next, let’s move on to the present. The Scottish Detective is currently running every Monday night for The Hope Operas. We placed 4th in the first weekend and 3rd in the second. Therefore, logically, we should have the top spot by the final weekend. Come see five shows (specifically The Scottish Detectve of course) all fight for your votes, with a brand new episode tonight. Plus, all the money goes to charity! Seriously, I can’t possibly make this sound better. For more information, please visit their website here.

Finally, let’s look to the future. Nightfall with Edgar Allen Poe is currently in rehearsals. We’re bringing four of Poe’s most famous tales of the macabre to the stage for you starting November 6th, and tickets are already selling out quickly. That’s not just promotion, either. We’ve already sold well over a hundred tickets and we’re still weeks away. So make sure to reserve yours at Moltov’s website here. In the meantime, I’ll leave you with a trailer for the show. Hope to see you there.


Another God of Carnage Review, Gallery Performs This Sunday & My Return To The Stage!

The fun never stops, ladies and gentlemen. This weekend God of Carnage returns to brand new audiences. Tickets are really starting to fly now, so make sure that you reserve your tickets here before they sell out. To celebrate, I’m happy to have yet another glowing review to bring to you. This time from MD Theatre Guide, with such fantastic snippets as:

“The cast worked well together. They made the shift in emotions seem effortless.”

Always nice to hear. I hope that you can enjoy this fantastic show sometime within the next few weeks. Please click here for the full review, or check out my Press page for all the reviews in one easy to find spot.

Next, I’m very excited to bring Molotov’s Staged Reading of Gallery to a captive audience this Sunday night at 8pm at Fantom Comics. We’ve been rehearsing this spirited staged reading with a fantastic cast all week, and I think we’re going to be showing you guys something special. Remember, this is an absolutely free reading with a reception before and after. Depending on the turn out and reaction, we may be bringing this to a full-scale production. So make sure to come and give us your feedback. Please click here for more information. In the meantime, here’s a sneak peek from our rehearsal:

Gallery Rehearsal

And finally, I’m happy to say that I will be returning to the stage this November with Molotov Theatre Group’s production of Nightfall. The show is a collection of four Edgar Allen Poe stories and I’ll be involved in all of them, specifically playing Roderick Usher in Fall of the House of Usher. I’m very excited to get back on the other side of the lights, especially following in the footsteps of a personal idol of mine Vincent Price. The dates and location are on my Calendar page, and make sure to check back here for more information soon.

Well that’s about all for now, my dear friends. Have a fantastic weekend, and hopefully I’ll see you at the stage. All the best!


God of Carnage Opens With A Fantastic Review and Pictures & Gallery Launches This Sunday!

After all of the work that has gone into directing my first full show in the DC Metro Area, I am proud to say that God of Carnage is finally open! We had a great opening week, with well over half the house pre-sold before Saturday’s performance. I could not be prouder of my cast and crew. This really is a show that I’m incredibly proud of. We have three more weekends of performances, so make sure to reserve your tickets and mark your calendars here.

Along with our opening weekend, we were lucky enough to have a representative from DC Metro Theater Arts in the house to write us a fantastic review. Here’s just a little sample:

Enough can’t be said for the talent Director Adkins has assembled. All four actors are seasoned veterans and are very exciting to watch on stage. Adkins keeps the timing tight and the movement of the play engaging.

Couldn’t have said it better myself. For the entire review, please follow the link here or visit my Press page here to read all of my past generous reviews.

Along with the review, I’m happy to have some pictures from the show, snapped by the very talented Harvey Levine. You can check them out on my Pictures page here. Please enjoy the sneak peek below.

God of Carnage Show Picture

Finally, this week is the week that we go into rehearsals for our staged reading of Gallery for Molotov Theatre Group, premiering Sunday night at Fantom Comics. I’ll just remind you that this play has been described as No Exit with Batman super-villains. I don’t know what more needs to be said. Make sure to click here for all the information on how you can join us for this awesome reading.

That’s all for now, everyone. Make sure to check back soon for more theater happenings. Be seeing you!


God of Carnage Opens This Weekend With A PWYC Preview, Plus Press For Upcoming Projects!

The big day is almost here: God of Carnage opens this weekend! It has been such a fantastic process getting this show moving from concept to execution and I can’t wait to share it with all of you. Along with the upcoming slated shows, of which you can get your tickets here, we have a Pay-What-You-Can Preview on Thursday for those of you that are a bit more cash conscious. Either way, I hope that you’ll come out to see what we’ve created. I am incredibly proud of this show and am very excited about getting it in front of an audience.

Along with that notice, I have a couple of Press notifications that have been buzzing through. The first is a preview piece for God of Carnage from DC Theater Metro Arts, which you can read here. The next is a preview piece for the upcoming Gallery staged reading with Molotov Theatre Group written at Broadway World, which you can read here. I have quotes in both and they should get you hyped up for my next to projects. They’re also both accessible on my Press page, along with all of my other clippings from shows past. In the meantime, make sure to mark your calendars for dates to come see both of these awesome shows and hopefully I’ll see you at the theater soon!


God of Carnage Tickets Go On Sale & More!

It’s official: tickets for God of Carnage at Silver Spring Stage are now on sale! Rehearsals for this project have been going amazing and I can’t wait to get this in front of an audience. The show is a dark comedy, with focus on the dark. So actually getting people to see and react to it will be an absolute treat. To reserve your tickets, please visit the link here. Along with the dates listed, we will be having a Pay What You Can preview the night before our opening on September 18th. So if you want to see what we’ve put together but money is a bit tight, we have your hook up. Make sure to reserve your tickets and mark your calendars.

There are other projects that are on the horizon of course, including a Staged Reading with Molotov Theater of Gallery, featuring five Batman villains during an Arkham Asylum breakout. That will be performed September 28th and the tickets are free. Also, the Hope Operas is just around the corner. The Scottish Detective is shaping up to be a very funny show, so hopefully you will be joining us every Monday in October to check us out. Details for both of those can be found at my Calendar.

And finally, a big thank you to Jenny Splitter of Fuse Productions, Kristy Simmons and the entire cast of Cosmetic Consciousness for making our staged reading for Page to Stage such a success. It’s always a treat to work with such a great group of people and I was honored to be a part of it.

That’s all for now. But keep your eyes peeled for more updates just around the corner. See you at the theater!


So Many Projects, So Little Time

Hello all. It’s been a little while since I’ve been able to post an update for the site. The irony is that it’s because of how incredibly busy I’ve been lately. First of all, God of Carnage rehearsals are in full swing. I have a fantastic cast that I’m working with that is 100% on the ball. Things are shaping up very nicely at the moment and I’m already excited to get this production in front of an audience. We open on September 19th, with a Pay What You Can preview on the 18th. Make sure to check out my Calendar to reserve your dates.

But before God of Carnage goes up, I’m happy to announce that I will be directing a staged reading that goes live this Labor Day. The play is called Cosmetic Consciousness and is written by my good friend Kristy Simmons. We will be performing it as part of the Page to Stage Festival at the Kennedy Center on September 1st from 3-5. Again, more details are at my Calendar.

But that’s not the only staged reading coming up. On September 28th I will be directing a staged reading for Molotov Theatre Group called Gallery. This is a pretty awesome play involving Batman’s Rogues Gallery during an Arkham breakout. The Joker, Two Face, The Riddler, The Scarecrow and Poison Ivy are all involved and verbally joust with each other while trying to solve the mystery as to who orchestrated the breakout. We’re going to be doing this up right in connection with Phantom Comics in DC, so make sure you don’t miss this one-night-only showing. Details are once again at my Calendar.

Finally, I’m happy to say that tonight is audition night for the Hope Operas. I will be directing a new play for 1Up Theatre called The Scottish Detective and we will be performing it all throughout the month of October. For pity’s sake, just check out my Calendar already.


New Headshots, Show Pics & Hope Operas Audition Date!

Whole bunch of updates today. First of all, I’m happy to say that I finally have some new headshots! Make sure to check them out at my Pics page. For a sneak peek, enjoy my new main Headshot below:

Damn I’m handsome.

Along with my headshots, I also added some pictures from my night with the DC Shorts Screenplay Festival from last year. Make sure to check them out as well!

One more bit of news: I happy to say we have an audition date for the Hope Operas! We will be auditioning on Monday August 25th at the Comedy Spot in Arlington, VA from 7-10, with holding possible callbacks on the 26th. Actors are expected to bring a 1 minute monologue and be ready to read sides from the available plays. Please email HopeOperas@gmail.com to request a slot. Also, make sure to check out my Calendar and the Hope Operas Page for more information.

That’s all the news that’s fit to print for now. More updates coming soon, so keep your eyes peeled!


Another Great Saving Private Poo Review And God Of Carnage Auditions This Weekend!

Another glowing review recently came in for Saving Private Poo from DC Theatre Scene. Here’s what they have to say about yours truly:

“The play’s strength really lies not in the script, but in the committed performances of the individual actors…Adam R. Adkins’ delightfully depressed Eeee-Ooorrr [is a] true stand-out in this regard.”

Aww shucks. To see the other nice things people have said about us, check out my Press page here. There’s only 3 more performances of Saving Private Poo until it closes, so make sure to get your tickets now. Our next performance is this Saturday at 6:15 at the Redrum. Hope to see you there!

In other news, this coming weekend I will be holding auditions for God of Carnage with Silver Spring Stage. If you’re planning on auditioning, make sure to bring your headshot and resume. Sides will be provided. For more details, make sure to check out the press release here.

More reviews should be rolling in for Saving Private Poo in a few days, so make sure to check back here for all the goodness. Until then, I’ll be seeing you round the Fringe tent. Cheers!
