Hey peeps!

I’m music directing my first live stage production: A Christmas Carol at Portland Playhouse!

I’m thrilled to return to the Playhouse after being featured as Bandleader in 2012′s Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson. And I’m thrilled to be part of this innovative, beautiful show.

This is not your Uncle Scrooge’s Christmas Carol. Even if you’ve seen it 20 times, I truly believe you will walk away loving this fresh, music-driven production. The direction by Cristi Miles and the heartfelt acting and singing of our cast make this a holiday experience not to be missed.

Plus I wear a funny wig.

Tickets are available at Portland Playhouse. The show runs Dec. 7-29 and there are a bunch of holiday matinees.

See you there with bells on!

O Come All Ye Playful

October 23, 2013

Admit it. Halloween doesn’t do it for you anymore. Sure, you walk a few haunted mazes,  you get a few scares.

But when it’s over, you want more. You’re not ready for sugar plum fairies and jolly old elves.

That’s why this holiday season, we’re delivering  a scary ghost story live on stage. It’s not your Uncle Scrooge’s Christmas story.

I’m music directing A Christmas Carol at Portland Playhouse, home of the finest risk-taking theater ever conducted in a 100-year-old German Baptist Church.

The show runs Dec. 13 – Dec. 29. And we have a sleigh load of matinee shows.

Come get spooked. And be reminded that it’s all year long, not just the season of giving, when we have the choice to be happy. Scrooge grapples with that choice, just as we all do. And even if we know the outcome, even if we’ve seen it 10 times, it still has the power to move us.

Tickets on sale now at Portland Playhouse!

The Day of the Show

May 15, 2013

The day of a show is a strange one. I warm up the voice and fingers. Write the set list. Rehearse it once,  twice. Rehearse transitions between songs. Pack up my merchandise – CDs, tees, download cards. Count up all my instrument and speaker cables, lug the mixer and speakers up from the basement. Choose […]

Second Nature

November 30, 2012

Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson at Portland Playhouse may have wrapped, but you can still see the climactic song I performed as Bandleader, “Second Nature.” Here’s a clip filmed by fellow cast member (and LiveWire actor/writer) Jason Rouse. Mellow until about 1:27, then it starts to blow up.

“Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson” Wraps After Two-Week Extension

November 30, 2012

And that’s a wrap. Seven weeks, over 30 shows, a two-week extension, two guitars and one pair of gold fishnets later (not mine), Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson at Portland Playhouse has wrapped. I loved my role as Bandleader, leading music onstage, playing guitar and piano, singing the climactic song “Second Nature”, and working with breathtakingly […]
