Here’s something that’s uncomfortable. Asking people you know for money for your theater company. I’m in the middle of a month where I’m doing that over and over. Every day. At least three or four times a day, I’m writing an email, or making a Facebook post, or texting someone. “Hey, would you contribute to […]Read more "Things I Don’t Regret"
Holy crap! I can’t believe our Indiegogo campaign has been live for one week and we’ve already raised 42% of our goal. It’s pretty astounding, and I’m so grateful for it. It’s always weird, trying to raise money to make art. We’re told over and over that artists need to “get a job,” “get a […]Read more "7 DAYS LATER"
Dark House Theater has been a dream of mine since college. I always wanted to have a theater company. Only in the past couple of years did the idea come into focus, though.

Aaron, a mild-mannered hairdresser, invites Marie over to his Alphabet City apartment for a date. In the course of an hour, secrets […]Read more "Dark House Theater: The First Season"
It’s weird how much I dislike seeing theater sometimes. Especially considering I’ve spent most of my life doing it. I realized this when I was writing back to a beloved acting teacher the other day, and he’d spoken about being invited to a reunion type event at his alma mater. He was delighted to have […]Read more "FOT"
Last year, when Dark House started gearing up for its first show, I spent a lot of time thinking about the shows I wanted to do. We had planned on opening with Veronica’s Room, a truly twisted thriller by Ira Levin, who wrote Rosemary’s Baby, which is one of my all-time favorite anythings… novel, movie, […]Read more "Choosing Carefully"
