110 in the Shade

2019 Off With a Bang!

Sweeney Todd was met with some of the most positive feedback I’ve ever received from a show - people loved it! I couldn’t be more grateful for such a terrific team who was so willing to push boundaries to create something great.

Then, immediately following I participated in the first staged performance of Anne Kobori’s new play “Everyday Alice” with Utopia Theatre. I played a grown up version of Peter Pan and worked with a passionate cast to bring these classic character’s to life.

Afterwards I had the immense pleasure of direction “110 in the Shade” at 42nd Street Moon in San Francisco. This classic musical (made famous by the 2007 revival featuring Audra McDonald) is based off of Nash’s play “The Rainmaker” and tells a heartbreaking story of beauty, strength and hope. The cast was fantastic, and it ended up being a truly special performance that I was terrifically proud of. They still run one more weekend!

I also just filmed a commercial for Chime where I got to play with puppies all day! Kudos to my agents at Stars for hooking me up with such a fun opportunity!

Coming up next, I’ll be directing “The Three Musketeers” at Douglass Morrison Theatre in Hayward. I’m really looking forward to the opportunity of stretching my sword fighting skills in such an awesome space. The production should prove to be an epic endeavor.

Outside of theatre, I’m looking forward to furthering my work as a Corporate Performance Coach. I’ve recently been offered a position by the prestigious “Stand & Deliver” company, and am eager to begin my journey working teaching high-level communication skills to major influencers in the business world.

Elephant Man, and An Exciting Announcement!

Last month I had the tremendous honor of playing John Merrick as the title role in The Elephant Man at Hillbarn Theatre. The production was extremely demanding physically, but served to be one of the most satisfying theatrical experiences I've ever embarked upon. While my body is glad for the relief, I will definitely miss that show.

However, once it ended I then began the most exciting role I have ever or will ever play: Fatherhood!

Judah Jeremey Marx was born on May 5th, 2018. While he experienced a bit of a bumpy ride in the hospital, we were able to bring him home happy and healthy two weeks later. We are overjoyed and can't wait to show him the world.

Meanwhile, the remainder of 2018 is already booked up! This summer I will be directing Saturday Night Fever at Broadway by the Bay, then I will be directing a very exciting project that has yet to be announced... Afterwards, I'll be playing Trevor Graydon in Thouroughly Modern Milly at CCMT, then I direct Sweeney Todd! I then wrap the whole thing up by directing 110 in the Shade at 42nd Street Moon. Lots of amazing stuff to do, and to teach my new baby!
