Case Closed

In May, Director Sudipta Bhawmik assembled eight actors to tell a tale of a man wrongly labeled as a terrorist. While the actual case is true, Sudipta's account was fictitious, and rivaled anything from a "What If" Marvel comic put together by Stan Lee. The very well thought out account of events captivated audiences at the South Asian Theatre Festival in August and at the historical Edison Valley Playhouse for the past three weekends. Today, The Curious Case of a Casual Terrorist completed its run, and I couldn't be any more proud of what we accomplished. It's tough in this business to come together for four months and then disperse in various directions to your next venture once a run is o

Culture Crawl 2017

Another wonderful experience I had sharing the stage once again with Mahogany Reynolds in the debut of her new play Waiting On Perfect during Rahway Culture Crawl 2017. I, once again, portrayed her stern, yet caring father, and Adora McDaniel (center) played a younger version of Mahogany's character. A powerful story; that had the audience gripped in silence, as they watched a frustrated wife come to terms with the cost of getting married before she was ready. An audience member said "This play needs to be performed in every high school across the country!". Mahogany plans is to produce this play on a larger scale in 2018.

Radio Golf Comes To UCPAC

Happy to announce that I'm adding another August Wilson play to my resume, as I will be playing Roosevelt Hicks in the Mystic Vision Players production of Radio Golf, the final installment in August Wilson's ten-part series, The Century Cycle. Set in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, an African-American politician preparing to throw his hat into the ring for Mayor is torn between doing what is right and what will help him win. I'm also honored to be working once again with director Jerome Arthur John, the director of my performance in Fences in 2016. This production will take place in The Loft, the Black Box of the Union City Performing Arts Center in Rahway, NJ for five shows: Friday, November 3rd

The Spirits of Hopewell Valley

Come and hear voices from the past with a historical reenactment as I play one of eight local figures buried in Pennington, NJ at the Methodist Cemetery on Pennington-Titusville Road and the Pennington African Cemetery on South Main Street. These idyllic burying grounds contain some of Hopewell Valley's first settlers, dating back to the early 18th and 19th centuries. Spirits of Hopewell Valley recounts their lives and deaths, the historical times, and the joys and hardships they shared. Period music will be performed by the Hopewell Hall, a small a cappella ensemble specializing in 18th and 19th repertoire. History is more than dates and times. It's people... stories of their lives, hopes,
