Critical Love for “Bob”

I’m thrilled to share that the folks at Times Square Central came to see our showcase production of Who Mourns for Bob the Goon? at Dixon Place, and they loved it (and rather liked me as well)!  You can read the full review here.

An excerpt:  “Playwright, Joshua Young, skillfully masters the psyches of his characters so that we may look voyeuristically at the kind of every day life that precedes [sic] war. Young manages to find light and humor and depth and reality. Beautifully directed by Lucia Bellini, this play is well worth seeing.”

Given that the purpose of the showcase was to help get this new work to to the public and drum up interest in the show, we couldn’t be happier that it’s now being noticed critically as well.  Keep your eyes on www.WhoMournsForBobTheGoon.com and my site for more news on the future of this piece!

It’s ALIVE (and topical!)

I’m so thrilled to be able to share White Privilege Frankenstein, an amazing short film by Chris Carfizzi that I was lucky enough to play a small part in.  The film is very funny, but also very topical in that it’s a way for Chris (and really, all of us involved) to contribute to the ongoing dialogue about race, power and privilege in this country.  So if you’ve got a moment, give it a watch and (if you enjoy it), a Like or a Share!

 

V/O is live!

After lots of work with the incomparable Jane Dashow (seriously-check her out if you’re looking for great training), my commercial voiceover demo is complete and now live on the site!  Check out the V/O page for the demo and a few other fun clips we recorded.  I’m also thrilled that this coincided with my first professional voiceover audition this week, and I’m looking forward to continuing to work in this exciting medium.

See Me on Fatal Encounters

The fatal shooting of Kansas abortion provider George Tiller made headlines in 2009, and sparked a national debate about a woman’s right to choose.  Just after the four-year anniversary of his death, Investigation Discovery chose to tell Dr. Tiller’s story, as well as the story of his killer, Scott Roeder, as part of their series Fatal Encounters.  In the episode titled Deadly Conviction, I play Dr. Tiller during his younger years, when he was coming to grips with his feelings about abortion and the situations that his female patients found themselves in a pre-Roe v. Wade world.

 

The episode airs on Investigation Discovery on Thursday, June 27th at 9:00 p.m. (and will be repeated frequently thereafter).  You can find your local Investigation Discovery channel here.
