...and...wait for it...Mr. Potter
Raise a glass and join the party!
Here's what I'm up to now....
Join us all for an evening at the Talk House.
The painful reunion begins October 5.
"... what soon develops in this one-act is a far darker – while still comedic – story line of how politics, survival instincts and compromise can take over the lives of even the most idealistic members of the citizenry."— Margaret Downing, Houston Press
Evening at the Talk House: A Dystopian World
Where Theater is Not Valued
EVENING AT THE TALK HOUSE
by WALLACE SHAWN
Directed by Rob Shimko and Kyle Sturdivant
October 5 - 21, 2017
FRIDAYS & SATURDAYS 8P
SPECIAL PERFORMANCE: MONDAY, OCT 16 7:30P
In an imagined near future, the creative team behind a critically lauded but ultimately unsuccessful play called “Midnight in a Clearing With Moon and Stars” have gathered at their old haunt, The Talk House. It’s the ten-year anniversary of what turned out to be one of the last plays ever performed. Over the course of a night spent snacking, drinking, and reminiscing, the characters begin revealing disturbing secrets about what their lives have become. The unnamed country they live in is ruled by a charming but frightening autocrat, and many people are finding themselves increasingly complicit and morally compromised in surprising and ominous ways.
EVENING AT THE TALK HOUSE features a powerhouse cast of Houston favorites: Jeanne Harris, Jovan Jackson, Seán Patrick Judge, Rebecca Randall, Charlie Scott, Kyle Sturdivant, Anne Quackenbush, and Abraham Zeus Zapata. Sets by Ryan McGettigan, Lights by Hudson Davis, Costumes by Macy Lyne, Sound by Shawn St. John, and Props by Tina Montgomery. This production will be the third ever, after the London (2015) and New York (2017) premieres.

The Johns is produced in collaboration with The National Council of Jewish Women, Greater Houston Section and United Against Human Trafficking.
Sex trafficking seems like someone else’s problem, until an upper middle-class family in a prominent Houston area suburb finds itself ensnared. This unflinching drama explores our values raising boys to men, instant sexual gratification and its impact on women, the family and those purchased.

Thrilled to be a part of this two-play historical extravaganza at Main Street Theater this Fall/Winter.
I'll be playing two roles in this show: Stephen Gardiner and Eustache Chapuys and it's going to be awesome.
Hope to see you there!

This dramatic event features two exceptional plays set in the court of Henry VIII and adapted from Hilary Mantel’s novels. In Part I (Wolf Hall), the court of Henry VIII is in utter upheaval as the King rages over his lack of a male heir. The shrewd and ambitious Thomas Cromwell inserts himself into the political scene to help the king pursue his passion for Anne Boleyn and secure an annulment from Katherine of Aragon. Part II (Bring Up the Bodies) charts Anne’s downfall, the rise of Jane Seymour, and Cromwell’s alliances with his greatest enemies. Featuring a cast of 23, Parts I and II will run in repertory.
Main Street Theater’s Wolf Hall is the only production since the Royal Shakespeare Company’s.
Children under the age of 5 are not allowed in the theater.
