Number one....I am now 25. Hooray! I had a terrific birthday hanging out with my lovely wife and some of my amazing NYC friends. The day after, I went to see Avenue Q for my (personal) record-breaking fourth time. The current off-Broadway cast was tremendous. The jokes were still as funny this time around as the last several, and the topical updates made to the lyrics were wonderful. Yes, the lyrics reminded us that "Donald Trump...(is) only for now." We scored some amazing rush tickets...literally front row center. Also, as I predicted to my friends, I was the loudest laugher in the house (as is often the case).
Number two...I am learning more about wine! I have an additional part time job at the Columbia Wine Company which is literally blocks away from my apartment. The nicest part is they are willing to let me work nights so that I can attend auditions during the day. The people are great, the wine selection is tremendous, and I am having a great time there.
Number three...I'll bet you're a little curious about the picture above. Well, this past Monday night I had the privilege to be featured in The Actor's Project NYC's latest showcase. TAP's main mission is to help members of the company land representation. There were some amazing agents and managers in the house on Monday, and I hope they liked me! The monologue I performed entitled, Peaceful Bank Robber, was about a dude robbing a bank for the first time mainly so he can donate to his favorite charities. Hence the dirty hippy shirt of "Save the Cats." Unfortunately for him, the robbery doesn't go quite as planed, and the gun accidentally goes off striking the teller who was being so nice. ...oops.
Number four...auditions and callbacks have been happening. I don't want to give too much away about some of the crazy-awesome things that I have been working on/towards, but let's just say I am super excited for the days to come. My fingers are crossed, and I am working my butt off to get ready for some great things. More information will be forthcoming about these.
Well, that about does it for this info-blast. As always, if you have any comments or questions, feel free to post one.
Thank you all. Until next time!
