Ah, The Magic of Live Theatre...

Some of them include: Shakespeare Theatre Company (Washington DC), Fulton Theatre (Lancaster PA), Maine State Music Theatre (Brunswick ME), Walnut Street Theatre (Philadelphia PA), Stages Repertory Theater (Houston TX), Theater Under the Stars (Houston TX), Houston Grand Opera, Fullerton Civic Light Opera (Anaheim CA), Sacred Fools Theater Company (Los Angeles CA), Merry Go Round Playhouse (Auburn NY), Oqunquit Playhouse (Ogunquit ME). Below are pics and footage of some of the selected productions I've worked on.

FROM HERE TO ETERNITY (Ogunquit Playhouse)
I had the unique pleasure playing "Pvt. Ruiz" AND "Hal" for the new Sir Tim Rice musical adapted from the James Jones novel of the same name. As a U.S. Navy Veteran, this show was very special to me as we were playing soldiers based in Pearl Harbor days before the attacks on December 7, 1941.
GHOST THE MUSICAL (Merry Go Round Playhouse)
I loved being a part of the wonderful GHOST THE MUSICAL family again as "WIllie Lopez" and the show's Fight Choreographer/Fight Captain for the Finger Lakes Musical Theatre Festival at the Merry Go Round Playhouse in Auburn NY.
GHOST THE MUSICAL (Fulton Opera House & Maine State Music Theatre)
I had the unique honor of being part of the creative team, as the Fight Choreographer/Fight Captain, for the new Chamber Version of GHOST THE MUSICAL, as well as co-star as, "Willie Lopez". It was truly a special time because we had the original Academy Award winning screenwriter for GHOST, Bruce Joel Rubin, and multiple Grammy Award winning composer/lyricist, Glenn Ballard, there with us for the entire table reading through rehearsals and staging process. We were led by the amazing Marc Robin at the beautiful Fulton Opera House in Lancaster PA and then we transferred the show to Maine State Music Theatre in Brunswick ME.
In The Heights
This has been my dream show since I first saw it on Broadway in 2008. I was honored to play "Graffiti Pete" and was also the Associate Choreographer and Dance Captain. We performed at the historic & esteemed Walnut Street Theatre in Philadelphia PA, and became the highest grossing opening show in Walnut's history! Directed by Bruce Lumpkin and Choreographed by Michelle Gaudette.
Man of La Mancha
I was privileged to play a "Muleteer" in this wonderful rendition, Directed by Bruce Lumpkin and Choreographed by Michelle Gaudette for Theater Under the Stars at the Hobby Center (Houston's Broadway Regional Theater). This "play within a play" is 5-time Tony Award Winner and our Houston show received rave reviews!
