Picasso at the Lapin Agile

Picasso at the Lapin Agile

Sad news. The Rabbit died. The Nimble Rabbit is no more at the Muncie Civic Studio Theatre, but the memories of Picasso at the Lapin Agile shall last for a very long time. It's always bittersweet when a show closes especially one where you are surrounded by a group of talented artists that create theatre magic every night. It was wonderful to share the stage with some great friends and some new friends! Thank you to Lysa Franklin, Sean Orlosky, Thomas Nelson, Taylor Watkins, Dakota Reed, Jeff Rapkin, Katy Wolfe, Fred Hefter, Alexandria Hudson, Becca Rankin, Daniel Gibson, Wendy Carpenter, Gabe Carpenter and Mary Williams! It has been a rich and rewarding experience and I hope our paths cross again and again to make some more remarkable theatre! And thank you to our amazing audiences who gave us such a successful run!

Black Band Arlo

Black Band Arlo

It's always nice to see Arlo Wazzo travel to other people's comic strips. Even if it's for a sad occasion.

Thanks again to my cartoonist pal, Dale Martin, for the invitation!

Theatre from the Past: A Midsummer Night's Dream (2006)

The Wall

Picasso at the Lapin Agile opens in five days (June 17! 8:00 pm!) at the Muncie Civic Studio Theatre (Get your tickets now!). In Picasso, I play Sagot, Picasso's art dealer. In 2006, I played a wall in the Muncie Civic's production of A Midsummer Night's Dream.

In this same interlude, it doth befall
That I, one Snout by name, present a wall;
And such a wall as I would have you think
That had in it a crannied hole or chink,
Through which the lovers, Pyramus and Thisbe,
Did whisper often, very secretly.
This loam, this rough-cast, and this stone doth show
That I am that same wall; the truth is so.
And this the cranny is, right and sinister,
Through which the fearful lovers are to whisper.

~ William Shakespeare
A Midsummer Night's Dream

Theatre from the Past: Moon Over Buffalo (2007)

Moon Over Buffalo

Picasso at the Lapin Agile opens this Friday (June 17!) at the Muncie Civic Studio Theatre (Get your tickets now!). It's been three years since I've been in a Muncie Civic production and, to mark the occasion, I'll be posting some pictures from past shows I was fortunate to be in.

First off is a photograph with the enchanting Helen Graves. I was lucky to have Helen play my wife in Moon Over Buffalo in 2007. It was my first show playing a lead character and I was blessed to have Helen by my side. She is lovely, smart and dynamic! Everything you want in an acting partner! She was and is truly the best!
