Choreographing "Into The Woods" and "Grease"

As part of the outreach program through The Beverly Arts Center, I am currently working with two South side schools in preparing their highschool musicals. This is my second year as the choreographer for these schools. Last year both schools I worked with, Sutherland School and St. Benedict, did the Rogers and Hammerstein version of "Cinderella". This year St. Benedict chose to do "Into The Woods" and Sutherland is doing "Grease!" The kids I work with are really great, and I hope to return next year to work with them again!!!

"Kama Sutra: The Second Coming"

Currently, I am understudying the role of the Swami (the creator of the Kama Sutra) in "Kama Sutra: The Second Coming" now playing at The Royal George Theatre.

Kama Sutra: The Musical™ is the story of sexually-frustrated young couple, Dick & Gina, and how their lust life is revitalized by the mysterious arrival of the 1800 year old creator of the Kama Sutra, Swami Comonawannagetonya, who reveals to Dick & Gina the titillating secrets of how any couple can experience all the joys of a totally fulfilling sex life.
