"The talent of success is nothing more than doing what you can do well, and doing well whatever you do without thought of fame. If it comes at all it will come because it is deserved, not because it is sought after.""

- Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

So it's been established a long time ago that down time is a myth to me. Thus it should be a surprise to no one that I have already lined up my next production, the 2017 Pulitzer Prize winning play Sweat by Lynn Nottage. Not only am I honored to have a work of Ms. Nott...

So... I can do comedy. Who knew?

Okay, this was dark comedy, so it had serious overtones, but The Homeless Man in Larry Allen's Shakespeare's Lost Masterpiece was not Troy Maxson (Fences), not Sgt. Waters (A Soldier's Story), not Detective December (webseries In Our Bac...

I always feel compelled to do a post-production synopsis (I mean, why have a blog if you don't, right?), but I don't always have the words to describe my experience. What was easy after my second run of Fences was the mother of all mental blocks trying to describe Gues...

Center Players presents Shakespeare's Lost Masterpiece by Larry Americ Allen. This fierce and controversial drama is about a burnt out professor of literature who discovers that a homeless man (me) unknowingly has a never before seen manuscript that is worth millions....

Presenting my first production I have the honor of doing with the famed Dunbar Repertory Company. I will be playing the role of Malcolm X's bodyguard Rashad in Jeff Stetson's The Meeting. A Marvel-esque "What If..." for the Black Community, as this tale envisions a get...

Where do I find the time? Over the summer, in between Fences rehearsals, a Saturday opened up for me to take part in shooting a couple of scenes in a feature film entitled April Again, written and directed by Tyrel Hunt (center in yellow). A well told story of differen...

It seems like every time I do a play at Villagers Theatre in Somerset, NJ, I end up doing a music video as well. This one took a little more time to develop, as I did Guess Who's Coming to Dinner there in the spring, and wasn't called for this until July. Having worked...

Proud of this work. Proud of the cast and crew. Proud of the accolades it has received. Proud of Director Anaiis Cisco and being able to be at the beginning of her journey to excellence. Most importantly, I am proud to represent every Black man in every Black neighborh...

I'm going to just come right out and say it from the jump... no knock against director Jerome Arthur John, but I was a better Troy Maxson this time around.
