Performing and producing audio books and audio plays has been a-longtime coming for me, as I've been plotting and planning to do this for many years. My new work is produced under the umbrella of Poe Forevermore Radio Theater by Damfino Media.
The goal for me as actor and producer of audio books and plays is to make the words themselves disappear into feeling and experience. I love the art form of vocal/audio performance, audio book readings and audio plays.
Please join me. I'll be talking about each new project in detail here on AN ACTOR'S NOTEBOOK.
And it's okay to shush people when listening to Poe Forevermore Radio Theater!
"Shhhh! I'm listening to Poe Forevermore Radio Theater!"
I chose this story by Charles Dickens because the characters are so vivid. They are delightful to play. And the story makes me very happy. It's that simple as to why I chose it for audio book performance.

I hope you enjoy listening to it as much as I love performing it.

It's been sometime since I wrote and published anything here, but my recent experience, as horrific as it was, prompts me to re-examine and re-look at some things.
So, I'm back.
Back to continue to muse aloud and investigate just what it is that I do as an actor, and any-old-other-thing that strikes my fancy that's related to the art and craft of acting.
We resume this parade of thoughts, questions, and the search for answers with a seven-part series of essays I'll call Tempest in a Teapot, inspired by a production of Shakespeare's The Tempest that I was recently invited to join to play Prospero (after the original Prospero quit, along with the co-director--that should have been enough of a warning!) and the very same production that I quit two days before opening night.
Much to talk about. Glad to be back talking about it with fellow actors and people who are interested in just what it is that we actors do.
Part One of TEMPEST IN A TEAPOT will begin when I think the time is right, and ripe!
