In conjunction with the book release of "A Chorus Line: FAQ" by Tom Rowan, I had the pleasure of joining an outstanding cast in a production of A CHORUS LINE at The Secret Theatre in Long Island City. This was my third time re-visiting the show - my second time as Gregory Gardner. This year marks the 40th Anniversary of A CHORUS LINE. What a treat to have had the opportunity to explore this work in a very intimate setting with a stellar cast. With direction by Tom Rowan (an expert at ACL trivia!) and original choreography re-created by Geena Quintos, this production brought us all to the heart of the story - navigating the sacrifices we all make to acquire the things we love.
Just wrapped on a short film, MBFF, yesterday. MBFF (Man's Best Friend Forever) is a dramatic thriller centered around an abused dog who escapes its captor and embarks on a quest for love and glory. As a huge supporter of adopting shelter animals, I am thrilled that I was able to be a part of this project directed by Tony Ducret.
I am thrilled to announce that I have signed with Uzan International Artists in their Film/TV/Theater Division! This is something that has been in the works this past year and I look forward to having a team that believes in me to help navigate this crazy business. I'd like to thank Kristen Ernst for making this happen and I look forward to building a strong relationship and future with Uzan.
This week is the start of an eight week puppetry class for film and television with The Brooklyn Puppet Conspiracy. These guys are awesome! Nothing like grown adults playing pretend. We received our "practice eyes" to begin learning how to control the puppets.
