Times Square. The cultural center of New York City. The lights, the shows, the food, and the people are all here. And now, I am too (four days a week)! No, I have not gotten my name on a marquee next to Brian d'Arcy James, but I am helping people get to see Broadway shows. I started working with a company called TKTBook (different from TKTS) who help theatre attendees get the best seats available. While I have only been there for three days thus far, I have already helped over a dozen people see amazing shows.
In other news, I began rehearsals for my first show in NYC this past Tuesday. I won't be giving too much detail as of yet, but I wanted to entice you!
Last week, Anna and I went and did amazing things! We each had a CityPass, which allowed us access to some of the biggest tourist destinations in New York for either free or for a huge discount. We went to the Guggenheim Museum, the 9/11 Memorial and Museum, the Empire State Building (twice in one day), Liberty and Ellis Islands, the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Cloisters, the Museum of Natural History, and an art tour of Rockefeller Center. It was crazy, but fantastic. If you plan to visit NYC, click here for details on how to get one.
Hi all! I promise a more detailed blog soon, but I want you to know I didn't forget about all of you! A full update of all the fun, exciting, and new things soon to come.
And other stuff too.
Hi All! How are you? Good? That's good. How am I, you ask?
I am pretty dang good!
Lots of things have been happening, so I will get started with the most recent events. Anna and I have moved! I loved our time in Bushwick, but our Brooklyn stay had to come to an end. We made our way uptown to Washington Heights, Manhattan! The place we found is sweet (especially since we have a washer/dryer in unit...an NYC win). We moved this past weekend with the aid of my father-in-law Jay. It was his first time in NYC, so we got to take him to some fun sights. Times Square, Rockefeller Center, Central Park; many miles of walking were accomplished. We HAD to make sure that Jay saw a Broadway show, and the show we chose was perfection! We attended the Saturday evening performance of Something Rotten. It was incredible!!! Anna and I were definitely the loudest laughers in the house. I also had the thrill of getting to see one of my Broadway idols, the incredible Brian d'Arcy James.
In other news, I haven't been auditioning too much as of late, but I have been attending plenty of callbacks! Last week, I was called for the Educational Tour team with George Street Playhouse. While I didn't land the contract, I had a terrific time working with the team out there in New Brunswick.
I also found out that I have made it to the third (that's right, third!) round of callback for the tour of Dr. Seuss' How the Grinch Stole Christmas, which will happen in a couple of weeks! Till then, I have a few more auditions to attend!
Also, did you happen to notice that it is now June!?!? How did that happen!?! For those of you interested, a friendly reminder that it is TONY weekend! The awards are this Sunday at 8:00pm (EST).
As always, remember to check out my wife's website too! Click here!
