Unbound Productions Summer readings

If you’re wondering what I’ve been up to this summer, I’ve been busy rehearsing and performing in some exciting stuff for Unbound Productions! In June, I performed in a staged reading for an audience of 300 people at the new theater space at the beautiful Huntington Library in a new Unbound venture, dubbed, Mystery Lit, in Jonathan Josephson’s adaptation of 3 classic Sherlock Holmes stories, titled, Sherlock, Holmes, and the Consulting Detective. Another reading of the play is scheduled to take place in early August.

I’ve also been rehearsing for Unbound’s summer Wicked Lit installation at The Mountain View Mausoleum. I will be performing as the lead character in staged readings of an adaptation of H.P. Lovecraft’s, From Beyond, which will be followed by full productions of an adaptation of W.W. Jacobs’, The Monkey’s Paw, running July 10-25.

FUGUE is getting rave reviews!

“An edgy, potent drama… The creation of brilliant music counterpoints the tormented amorous lives of three prominent composers… elegantly geometric in its construction and viscerally potent in its staging… Unadventurous viewers need not apply.” — Los Angeles Times
