Greetings all! I hope that July has been a wonderful month thus far....Hard to believe that we are well over the 1/2 way point.
As promised, here are the details of my upcoming show. Parking Lot 63 is an original one-act drama by Carol W. Berman based on real events set in 1963. 13-year-old Sara has discovered that there is a girl trapped in a car at the lot where her father Irv works. The young Sara is eager to help this girl, but her efforts are blocked by her father and the other lot employee Louis. There is also a lot of drama that happens back at home. I play Sara's brother, David Baum. A very bright 17-year-old in college, David rebels against his father and leaves home. This is a show that deals with a lot of heavy issues, with some moments of humor thrown in to ease the tension. As part of the Thespis Theatre Festival, performances are scheduled for August 13th (9:00pm), 15th (1:00pm), and 16th (6:00pm). For ticket information, click here.
Other fun and exciting things are happening too!
On July 13th, I started working with TAPNYC, also known at The Actor's Project. Being a very new actor to the NYC scene, I was not sure if they would even consider a guy like me to join their troop, but the did and joined I am. From now until our Off-Broadway showcase in October, I will be working on perfecting a monologue with the opportunity to audition for a sketch comedy team and/or a musical theatre troop. (I can audition for both, but I must pick one!) I have the honor to be working with the founder of the company Bobby Holder. The main goal of TAP is to help actors land representation in NYC to help further their career. Having an agent in this city is an important step to landing some of the best roles in the city in TV, film, commercials, and theatre. Even if I don't make it into either the sketch comedy or musical troop, I am still thrilled by this opportunity to show my stuff with a crazy-fun monologue. Information about TAP, and their showcases, can be found here.
I've had the chance to see some great shows lately. Hand to God, Matilda, Mrs. Smith's Broadway Cat-tacular, and last night I saw the Encore's! production of Andrew Lippa's Wild Party with the amazing Sutton Foster. I've also been auditioning like crazy...let's hope something sticks!
Other than that, not much else. Be on the lookout for more updates here and on my wife's website too. For more Anna Lewein, click here.
