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.
Well, after several months of rehearsals and 4 weeks of shows, Morning, Miranda finally closed on Saturday. While I’m proud of our run and I’m ready to move on to my next project, I’m sad to leave such an amazing group of artists. From our first rehearsal in January to our strike of the set last Sunday, rarely have I had such a fantastic time with a rag-tag group of theater professionals. I wish my cast and crew nothing but the best, and hopefully we’ll get to work together again very soon.
But as one door closes, another opens. I’m happy to announce my project for this year’s DC Summer Fringe Festival: Saving Private Pooh! Originally performed as part of Landless Theater’s Mashup Festival last year, this fun piece is a combination of Winnie the Pooh and World War II films. And rather than playing a nameless Nazi who gets the wrong end of Pooh’s claws like last year, this time I’ll be stepping in as Eeyore! So if you’ve ever wanted to see me get nailed in the butt, here’s your chance. Dates have been announced, and they’re on my Calendar page here. Make sure to check back soon with Ticket information and fun updates.
Also, as I’ve mentioned before, I have a few different festivals coming up. The first is BOOM! Theater’s Brave New Works Festival, which will be premiering on May 4th. Tickets are available here. Also, I’ll be performing in my very first Source Festival piece in June! Performance dates are TBA, but you can read up on the festival at their site here.
That’s all for now. But stay tuned for Source dates, Pooh ticket info and hopefully some pictures from Morning, Miranda to pretty up the site. See you then!
Just a few quick updates notes. Firstly, of course, Morning, Miranda is still in full swing. Tomorrow night kicks off our third weekend and I’m excited to get it back in front of an audience. I will never cease to shill this show I’m very proud of, so you can get your tickets here or read all the nice things people have said about us on my Press page here.
In the meantime, I have a few notes for upcoming theater projects in the works! First of all, at the start of May I will be involved with the BOOM! Brave New Works Theater Festival. I’ll be performing a charming new piece written by my good friend Kristy Simmons. It’s a one-night performance, so don’t miss your chance to see it! Please visit BOOM! Theater Company’s site here for ticket information or reserve the date on my Calendar page.
Following that performance, I’m proud to announce that I will be participating for the first time in the Source Festival here in DC. The Source Festival has been making it’s mark as a theatrical institution here in DC, so I’m happy to finally be throwing my hat in the ring. Details are still in the works for the dates & times, but I’m sure I’ll be letting you know about it ASAP. In the meantime, feel free to read up on the festival at their website here.
And just to add a few quick notes: I’ve added an updated Resumé to the site. Make sure to follow me on the Twitters for fun show info, keep an eye on this Sunday’s Veep for a possible glimpse of your favorite local actor and check back soon for some future Fringe show news. And, as a final plug, make sure to come out to see Morning, Miranda this weekend. Hope to see you soon!
Another week, another handful of performances for Morning, Miranda. Big thanks for everyone who came out this weekend to see us. The crowds so far have been very energetic and we’ve been getting some fantastic feedback. Part of that feedback has come by way of some great new press clippings, both of which I’m featured in. The first is in MD Theatre Guide, where I get a mention in the review. The second is from The Sentinel, in which I was interviewed on my thoughts on the show. Also, MD Theatre Guide listed us in their Top 5 Shows To Seek The Week! You can check them out, along with DC Metro Theater Arts’s review, at my Press page here. We only have 2 more weeks of shows. So if you haven’t gotten your tickets yet, now’s the time to do it. Make sure to reserve them here or on my Calendar page.
And just a quick note about my upcoming Veep appearance. HBO has released small synopses of the upcoming episodes, but I’m not exactly sure still when I will be appearing. It sounds likely that it may be this Sunday, but that’s only an educated guess. As soon as I know more, I’ll be sure to let you guys know. So let’s cross some fingers.
One weekend down, three to go. Thank you so much to everyone who has come out so far to see Morning, Miranda! You gave us some great houses and invaluable feedback. For everyone who hasn’t seen it yet, why not? It’s good. I swear it is. Don’t believe me? Well, how about believing DC Metro Theater Arts? They stopped by this weekend and gave us a fantastic five star review! You can check it out here or at my Press page.

Dates are also listed on my Calendar page here and we have an official Facebook event here. Also, as always, feel free to join in the discussion on Twitter using the official hashtag #MMIRANDA.

Since I decided to launch this little corner of the web for myself a few years ago, I’m happy to say I’ve finally hit a first milestone. Today I have passed over 1000 views! While I’m not sure why I’ve gotten hits from Bahrain, Peru and the Russian Federation, why ask why? Welcome, my international brothers and sisters! In order to celebrate, I’m happy to say that I’ve finally added pictures from last Fall’s production of Chupy & The Science Twins, which you can view here. So if you’ve ever fantasized about what I would look like in a mummy costume, your dreams have finally come true.
In the meantime, rehearsals are up and running for Doorway Arts Ensemble’s production of Morning, Miranda. Make sure to mark your calendars with the dates and times here, and make sure to follow me on Twitter here with rehearsal updates and what-nots.
And finally, HBO just gave us a video teaser on the 3rd season on Veep. I actually started watching the series last week, and I’m proud to say that it’s a pretty funny and witty show. It’s nice to know that I’m looking forward to the the 3rd season premiere for a reason other than seeing my handsome face. Still no luck on an upcoming episode synopsis, but here’s a little something to keep us happy for another 52 days.
Hey gang. It’s been a while since I’ve given this site a proper update. To be honest, I’ve been taking a minor sabbatical from the stage. But distance makes the heart grow fonder, and I’m happy to say I’m hitting 2014 running. First, I’m happy to announce that I’ve been cast into the newest play by local playwright Stephen Spotswood, whose past works include 2012 Captial Fringe’s Best Drama We Tiresias and last October’s In The Forest She Grew Fangs. The new play is called Morning, Miranda and will be presented by Doorway Arts Ensemble starting March 20th. For more details, check them out here or check out my Calendar here.
Secondly, if you’ll look to the right, you’ll notice that I no longer have my Facebook fan page synced up. Honestly, there’s no real point to it. Anyone who wants to know what’s going on in my life, they’re free to friend me on my personal page. It’s updated much more often. The link to it is on my Contact Me page here. However, if you again look to the right, you’ll see that I’ve synced up my Twitter account. Yes, I finally have a twitter account. I fought it for years, mainly on the basis that it’s the dumbest word in the history of speech. But if that’s what hip with the kids, Grandpa Adkins will crack this nut as well. Feel free to follow me by clicking the button over there. Go ahead, it’s right over there. I’ll wait.
Did you do it? Don’t lie to me. It makes me sad. Either way, make sure to check back here soon. I have fingers in a lot more pies at the moment, so more updates are on the way. I promise.
You know a good way to get updated on that stuff in real time? Twitter. Honestly, it’s the tops. Just click that Follow button and be transported to a world of pure imagination.
