AGP... Arthur Gets a Perry
From two productions of 𝗙𝗲𝗻𝗰𝗲𝘀 to 𝗥𝗮𝗱𝗶𝗼 𝗚𝗼𝗹𝗳 to 𝗗𝗲𝗮𝘁𝗵 𝗼𝗳 𝗮 𝗦𝗮𝗹𝗲𝘀𝗺𝗮𝗻, everything I've done in community theatre in and out of Perry houses in New Jersey has made this moment possible. Starting with Katie Sillitti recruiting me via inbox while I'm in Cleveland to do a play at Villagers, which led to Diane L. Parker stalking me (true story) to play Troy Maxson. From doing work with Dunbar Repertory Company after connecting with Darrell Willis and Mark Henderson, to becoming an ACE member of the New Jersey Creative Arts Collaborative, to having a home theatre in 𝗧𝗵𝗲 𝗕𝗹𝗮𝗰𝗸 𝗕𝗼𝘅 𝗼𝗳 𝗘𝗻𝗴𝗹𝗲𝘄𝗼𝗼𝗱, it's been one helluva ride... and the journey's been awesome. I salute Sharon Coyle, Mark Papa, and the First Avenue Playhouse as well, as 𝗗𝗿𝗶𝘃𝗶𝗻𝗴 𝗠𝗶𝘀𝘀 𝗗𝗮𝗶𝘀𝘆 also took home the Perry for 𝗢𝘂𝘁𝘀𝘁𝗮𝗻𝗱𝗶𝗻𝗴 𝗣𝗿𝗼𝗱𝘂𝗰𝘁𝗶𝗼𝗻 𝗼𝗳 𝗮 𝗣𝗹𝗮𝘆. We all should be proud of our work. Until our paths cross again... "Success, and nothing less."
