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:
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.
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:
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!
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.
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.
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!
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!
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!
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.
