All The World’s a Stage

By , October 19, 2019

Another season, another play. I’m acting in another community theater offering this autumn, with the added bonus that I actually get to quote Shakespeare’s “All the world’s a stage” passage from his play, As You Like It.

Two friends and I will present The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (Abridged) by Adam Long, Daniel Singer, and Jess Winfield November 1st through 3rd in Haines.

Noises Off!

By , March 30, 2019

Tonight and tomorrow afternoon, I’ll appear in Noises Off by Michael Frayn on stage in Haines. That will end a four-show run, and over two months of rehearsing, often 6 days a week.

If you’ve noticed any decline in blog quality since January, this is largely why! I tend to write about what’s on my mind. I’ve had time for little else since February, with a few read-through evenings in January; I didn’t want to dwell on it here, as I did with past productions of Incorruptible (see “The Show Must Go On”) and, particularly, The Lion in Winter. But, I need to acknowledge it. Even as I attended to the work of the homestead, which has sadly taken second place to this commitment, I did so with the lines recordings playing in my ears.

If you’ve seen the play, or at least the movie, I play Frederick Fellowes/Philip Brent, or, in the short hand everyone seems to understand, I’m “the nose-bleed guy.” Which, of course, means that of all the trouser-dropping that occurs in the course of the play’s action, I’m the actor who spends the most time with his pants around his ankles. My late mother would be so proud! The show’s humor is rather broad . . . .
