Things get WEIRD in Brighton Beach

This past week...Things got WEIRD!!!

Here at Festival 56 in Princeton, IL we said goodbye to a lot of great new friends as their contracts came to an end. But a handful of us lingered to put on the last show of the summer season: Neil Simon's Brighton Beach Memoirs.

In this show I'm definitely not playing my typical type. I'm playing Jack Jerome, a 42 year old Jewish man who works several jobs to support his family during the great depression of the 1930's.

It's been a wonderful experience to stretch my acting legs and find home in this man's story. It's a delightfully funny, charming, and moving play. And the fact that I don't sing a note all evening is not my typical jam, but it's nice to really focus on the craft of ACTING!

The cast and crew left are a goofy bunch, but they are delightful to work with and are a constant source of entertainment. It will be a tough time saying goodbye to these wonderful peeps.

Until Next Time,

Lift Big, Sing Big, and Look Your Absolute Best
