Much Ado About Nothing

Well, I was in a wine bar one night in Spring of 2014 celebrating my casting as a lead in Chess, when my phone rang. It was Jim Holmes from Troy Civic Theatre, calling to ask if I might fill in the role of Don Pedro in TCT's production of Shakespeare's Much Ado About Nothing. I generally don't do straight plays, and certainly not Shakespeare! However, in my happy and half-inebriated state I agreed. It ended up being a Summer to remember, with hot rehearsals, difficult lines, new friends, and many joyous nights in Troy overlooking the Hudson drinking and running lines. A good choice, indeed!
