Wow. What an amazing month of theater it’s been. First of all, thank you so much to Silver Spring Stage for inviting me to be a part of Stop Kiss. I had such a fantastic time with the cast and crew, and we put on a great show. Special thanks to all who came out to support me, the show, and high-quality community theater.
And speaking of fantastic times, in case you were too square to be at the Capital Fringe Tent last night, R.U.X. walked away with the Capital Fringe Audience Award for Best Comedy! After five amazing performances (2 of which were sold out beyond Standing Room), this was just the cherry on top of an amazing experience. Thank you so much to all of the cast and crew who made this show so successful and an absolute pleasure to be involved in, with a special thanks to Maurice Martin (our playwright/producer) and Sun King Davis (our director) for bringing me back on for this project. And thank you to everyone who supported the show with your tickets, your laughs and your votes. So what does the future hold for R.U.X.? Will I ever don the coveralls again? All I can say is; Robots live forever.
So after working two amazing shows in a month, I will be taking a bit of a theater break to catch up on some of that ever-elusive sleep that I’ve been hearing such great things about. But stay tuned, because if I know DC Theater, I’ll be back in the lights in no time.
Reviews-a-plenty for Stop Kiss and R.U.X. are up today! First, here’s a review from DC Metro Theater Arts on Stop Kiss, where they make the point that “The raw talent in this show is astonishing.” Read the entire review here.
I appear to be the talk of the town over at DC Metro Theater Arts, as they joined us for our R.U.X. opening and wrote another fantastic review for us. Read all the details here.
Fringe & Purge have also shown their support of R.U.X., with the mention that yours truly is “especially deft in his handling of this material”. Read their review here. Or listen to their podcast where our reviewer says that R.U.X. is his favorite show of the DC Capital Fringe so far. Listen to the first minute, then pick it up again at 22 minutes to get all of the R.U.X. goodness.
Tickets are still available for both shows. You can get those tickets here and here. Tickets are being snapped up for the last weekend of Stop Kiss, and we were nearly sold out for our first two shows of R.U.X. So now is not the time to dilly dally. Hope to see you there!
A review has been posted for Stop Kiss, which includes a special mention for yours truly. You can read the review here. There’s only a few dates left for the show, so make sure to get your tickets here before you miss your chance.
Also, R.U.X. opens this Friday! I’m really excited about this show, and I can’t wait to get in infront of an audience of adoring fans. To reserve your tickets, which are selling faster than hotcakes made of iPads, click here.
In just 2 days, Stop Kiss will be opening at Silver Spring Stage. But if you’re a little short in the wallet, how does a Pay-What-You-Can Preview sound? So if you want to come and see a great show (and spread the word), stop by Silver Spring Stage tomorrow night, June 28th at 8pm and pay whatever your heart desires. If you can’t get over to us tomorrow, fret not, because we have shows all the way through the 21st of July. Reserve your tickets here.
And of course, tickets are on sale for R.U.X., which opens on July 13th. Tickets are available here. Make sure to reserve them quick, because there are only 5 shows that are selling fast!
The Silver Spring Stage has updated their website, and tickets are now available to purchase online! We are open on June 29th (after a June 28th preview) and run through the 3rd weekend of July. In total, that’s 13 chances to see a show that I’m becoming very proud of.
Along with that, the calendar tells me that it’s the 18th of June, which means that you can now buy your tickets for R.U.X. at the Capital Fringe Website! Even on the first day they’re starting to fly, so now’s the time to reserve your seats. We have 3 evening shows, one night performance and a matinee, so anytime you want to enjoy your theater, we have you covered.
Come see both shows and you get a special prize: a huge hug from yours truly! If that won’t sell tickets, nothing will. Wet, sloppy kisses available by request only.
The theater life stops for no one. Last weekend was my opening for The Sunshine Boys for the Chevy Chase Players, and tonight you can come and see me in a staged reading for a new play called Render. Check out my Calendar for details on how to see both shows. But more good news comes down the pike: I will be performing this summer in Stop Kiss for the Silver Spring Stage! I’m very excited about this project, and I can’t wait to dive into the deep end with this talented cast & crew. More details on the show will be coming soon but, as always, my Calendar page has all the updates. And still, R.U.X. will be hitting the DC Capital Fringe stage in just a few months. I hope to see you there!
