Spring has come in like a lion with rain and rain and more rain here in the Chicago-land area. I can only hope that all those May flowers have enjoyed the wet time.
May marked the month of my debut appearance in the web series The Natural on Vimeo. I play Solomon Keys, an agent working in the CIA reporting to The Manager, the same person Agent Richard Davis and the CORE team report to. After needing a month of recovery from their defeat by Wilson, the CORE team is reassembled and ready to track him down. How will Solomon play into this picture and who is really tracking who down. Head over to https://vimeo.com/ondemand/thenaturalseries/ and you can rent this episode (and the pilot episode also if you have not seen it) for only 99 cents, less than the cost of a Starbucks coffee.
Summer also has me starting my first musical rehearsals. Etude, A Vampire Fairy Tale which will open in August 19 in Palatine IL (more details to follow). My role is small, but there are no small roles in any show. I will get to dance, sing and play on stage with a great group of people and a custom script and music.
Peter Pan on her 70th Birthday has closed and though I never had the chance to take the stage, I had a great time working with Shatter Globe Theater Company. The cast was talented and I learned a lot from watching them rehearse, perform and build chemistry on stage. And all my understudy friends and I had a blast during our time together.
Summer 2017 is looking to be a slower summer than the past 12 months has been, but that allows me some time to try my hand at some new things. I recently purchased a Rode Videomic for my DSLR not only for self-tapes, but to try my hand at some more creative endeavors. I will be posting more on that later as well. So until next month, or my next inspired newsletter, have a safe and happy summer. Enjoy the warm weather where ever you are, from Chicago to Phoenix.
