And my next project is . . .

A week or so ago, I tweeted a photo of me signing a contract for a show set to debut this fall.  Well, today, it’s time to announce what that show is . . .

As you probably know, I’ve worn a few hats in my day.  I produce, mostly, but have written a few shows (My First Time and the upcoming Somewhere in Time), and have even directed a couple as well (Miss Abigail, Awesome 80s Prom, etc.).

Well, I’ve been inspired by Alan Cumming’s one man Macbeth and have decided to get back on the boards . . . as an actor!  I started out as a child performer (as a 5 year old Steadfast Tin Soldier) and even got a degree in it.  I worked for years in the dinner theater/summer stock circuit and even did that big national spot for the iPhone.

But now I’ll be starring in a one-man show about the life and times of a childhood hero of mine . . . the former Governor of Massachusetts . . . Michael Dukakis

See the resemblance?

Ok, ok, I can’t even type this with a straight face anymore.  April Fools!

Have a fooly-filled day!

(Oh, and the tweet from last week was no fools.  There will be a new project announced later this week.  Honest.  If I don’t announce one, let God strike me down and give me Mike Dukakis’s eyebrows.  Oh wait, that’s not possible, because I already have them.)
