After nearly 25 years as an actor, which included Evita and Sweet Charity on Broadway and being the thirty-fifth Narrator in The Fantasticks Off Broadway, I began directing. My work as an actor afforded me the opportunity to work with some very well known directors including Bob Fosse, Harold Prince and Albert Marre
Since making the transition to directing I’ve added nearly sixty productions to my director resume. Those productions include: The Most Happy Fella (starring Sprio Malas) Fiddler on the Roof (starring Eddie Mekka) Chicago, Gypsy (starring Joyce DeWitt), Man of La Mancha, My Fair Lady, Guys and Dolls, South Pacific, The Fantasticks, Carousel, Oklahoma, Stand By Your Man, Miss Saigon, Aida, A Wonderful Life and Peter Pan. My most recent credits include The Producers, Mary Poppins, Les Miserables , Ring of Fire, Hank Williams: Lost Highway.
I've also directed a number of plays among them are The Musical Comedy Murders of 1940, Driving Miss Daisy, Lend Me A Tenor,The Man Who Came to Dinner, You Can’t Take it with You, Same Time Next Year After-Play (Walnut Street Theatre in Philadelphia) A Christmas Carol (The John Jakes version), The Graduate Sheer Madness and Miracle on 34th Street any Other People’s Money at the John W. Engeman Theater in Northport, NY
I've had the privilege of working with some of the industry's most respected actors, young actors in or just out of drama school and local actors filling out union pro to non-pro ratios. Each presents challenges and each produces enormous rewards. I have mounted shows in as little as seven days as well as the three or four week periods indicative of a regional theatre situation. I've worked with a number of extremely talented choreographers and designers and I welcome the opportunity of meeting and working with many more.
