This past weekend we opened the first #OffTheHill touring show with Cincinnati Playhouse in the Park. Roses and Thorns is a tale of Beauty and the Beast written by fellow Seattlite, Bret Fetzer. In it I play a number of characters including Mulch, the forgotten, under-appreciated horse. In his eyes, this play would be named, The Tragedy of Excelsior: Forgotten, Misunderstood, and Misnamed as Mulch. If you're in the region, check out the website and find a neighborhood and showtime near you! It's been getting rave reviews from all my friends (the most trustworthy of critics, in my humble opinion) :-D
This fall the Playhouse opens with Jeffery Hatcher's Sherlock Holmes and the Adventure of the Suicide Club. The show is directed by KJ Sanchez and opens this Thursday, September 8th in Cincinnati Playhouse in the Park's Marx stage. I'm thrilled to be understudying for the lovely Tonya Beckman who plays the mysterious, deliciously coy Club Secretary. It's been a joy to watch her and the entire cast bring this more humanizing portrayal of the later years of Sherlock Holmes' adventures to life.
