Sunday in the Park with George
Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine’s masterpiece about the painter Georges Seurat and his obsessive quest to create the painting that would define his life, his city, and his time. The second act then moves forward in time to look at George’s great grandson and his own fight to make art in a world where beauty often takes a backseat to commerce. This remarkable work remains one of only three American musicals ever to win the Pulitzer Prize for drama. Includes the timeless Sondheim classics Finishing the Hat, Putting it Together, Children and Art and Move On.

Venus in Fur at RLT
Raleigh Little Theater and Actor’s Comedy Lab present Venus in Fur by David Ives finished its opening weekend yesterday to standing ovations and the warmest reception I’ve ever experienced. I am incredibly proud of this incredible team of talented people at Actor’s Comedy Lab and blessed to be able to work with them on this brilliantly funny play. This play is like a long, intricate magic act, and a joy to perform. We hope you can see it before we sell out! Thank you, Raleigh!!

Theater review: McQueen leads strong ‘Venus in Fur’ at Raleigh Little Theatre
“Diana Cameron McQueen attacks the dream role of Vanda with gusto, growing in power as the play unfolds, manifesting Vanda’s dangerous sensuality with total aplomb. Tony Lea knowingly projects Thomas’ initial smirky confidence and later inevitable enthrallment with Vanda’s allure.”

THROUGH 2/1: Male and Female Lock Swords in Actors Comedy Lab’s Venus in Fur
“These two actors are tremendously right for their roles…Actors Comedy Lab has created another tour-de-force with this quietly explosive play, which leaves us all a little shocked, but not entirely surprised, at the final outcome….”

The Lost Colony 2013-2014
The Lost Colony Symphonic Drama is a NC cultural heritage of both theatre history and American History. It plays out Paul Green's script of the real happening of the first English colony in the Americas, which was fated to mysteriously vanish without a trace. It tells the story of the colonists who traveled here to start a new home and settlement only to be plagued by misfortune. Queen Elizabeth I features prominently as the one, with Sir Walter Raleigh, designed and approved the expeditions before the war with Spain prevented her from sending further supplies to the colony, one of the many hardships to befall the colony.
I played Queen Elizabeth I in The Lost Colony is 2013 and 2014, it was Directed by Ira David Wood III, a former Sir Walter and Old Tom himself. He brought the performance back to a style seen before in the 1960's, and opened to rave reviews, best in years.
It is a local treasure and a national hallmark of American Theater History. It was awarded an honorary TONY for Excellence in theater for 75 years of performaces!
