A Love Letter To The Theater

By my count, the eighth significant snow of the 2013-2014 season is swirling around outside with perhaps 8 of 14 inches already accumulated.  This one promises to be bigger than the previous 7. 

 

Four Things About 4000 MILES

Even with twenty years of productions under our belt, things are always a bit hectic with last-minute preparations during opening week. This year the snow and predictions for (say it ain’t so!) ice are adding an extra special something into the mix. It’s not every year that a theater gets to start its season during a week with no fewer than three “major winter storm events” forecast.  We’re going to take it as a sign of distinction.

Acting in Ponds

I wouldn't consider myself a big fish in the world of theater.  Even within the pond that is Philadelphia theater.  I've been working professionally as an actor on the stage and screen for about 10 years now: from tiny community center productions to national tours, from children's puppet shows to horror films drenched in blood.  And after all that, I know there are still many bigger ponds out there.

Fairy Tale High School!

Once I completed my theatre studies at Loyola University Chicago, I decided to stay in the city for 3 additional years to pursue a career in comedy and the stage. When I returned home in 2009, I didn’t know anything about the Philadelphia theatre scene, so I turned to my high school director and friend, Tony Braithwaite.

Theatre For/With/As Young People

The young middle and high schoolers who make up 16/18ths of the Fairy Tale High School cast are getting a pretty unique opportunity for young actors. The have the privilege of getting a first-hand glimpse into the world of professional theatre.

The Theater Looks Forward

Montgomery Theater performances take me back to my childhood! I remember at age 10 being taken to a performance of Yul Brynner in “The King and I.” Watching a stage performance was mesmerizing and I still feel the same way about live theater.
