2013 has been a good year.  Past, present and future.  The beginning of the year found me returned back to my usual stomping grounds of late: Arkansas Rep (Hamlet, Henry V, 39 Steps) to play Biff in Death of a Salesman.  After working on this piece it is no question that it is one of the greatest, and most moving, pieces of theater ever written.  It also reminded me of the fact that to enter the acting profession isn't as much about fame or money, but in the great relationships you make with your castmates.  A great experience and a beautiful show. 

I am currently working at The Shakespeare Company in D.C. on Measure for Measure.  Though only a week into the process I have enjoyed every minute of it and am honored, humbled and terrified to be part of this incredibly company under the brilliant direction of Jonathan Munby.  I am very excited to see where this show will go and what it will become as we are off to a wonderful start.

Finally, I will be returning to Cincinnati to end the year reprising my role as Young Scrooge/Christmas Future in Cincinnati Playhouses production of Christmas Carol.  This will be my third year now, and the shows 22nd year.  Yet the show always comes off as fresh and new, mainly due to our wonderful Scrooge and director - who refuse to settle, always striving to find the heart in the piece and keeping it fresh.  A great way to end a good year, in the company of my Cincinnati family.
