It was the early '90s and a seismic shift happened. Little did I know that 2 productions at Houston's Alley Theater would profoundly change the course of my life. In the span of about 12 months, I saw Robert Wilson's "Danton's Death" and Anne Bogart's "American Vaudeville." I had never seen such bold theatrical language and vivid storytelling. I had no choice--a life in the theater beckoned.
I moved to NYC in the fall of 1993 to attend NYU and have never looked back. It has led to projects both on the boards and behind the scenes. I was fortunate enough early on to be in rehearsal rooms with Mr. Wilson, Joseph Chaikin, and Maria Irene Fornes.
My performing and stage managing credits include Broadway: Dance of Death with Ian McKellen and Helen Mirren. Off Broadway: Aunt Dan and Lemon, Mike Leigh's Smelling a Rat, What the Butler Saw (all directed by Scott Elliott/ New Group), Servicemen (directed by Sean Mathias/New Group), Uncle Jack, Small Craft Warnings, Whoa-Jack! (with Worth Street). Other NY credits include: Metropolitan Opera, P.S. 122, HERE, 59E59, Joyce Soho, and Aaron Davis Hall. Regional: Vineyard Playhouse and Princeton Rep. Tours: Edinburgh Fringe and extensive touring with SITI Co. including Dublin International Festival (Ireland), MC93 Bobigny (France), Bonn Biennale (Germany), Court Theater, Walker Art Center, American Repertory Theater, and the Brooklyn Academy of Music. I also toured all over the US with experimental jazz composer Fred Ho and to Poland and Russia with Alexandra Beller/Dances.
