The Wiz-This was me as the LORD HIGH UNDERLING, one of my many character roles in The Wiz. Yes, there was a white guy in this version! Don't I look menacing with a whip?
Alice in Wonderland-I had fun with this one, I'm THE MAD HATTER in Alice In Wonderland...like there's another show with that character?! I actually had a prostetic nose made just for me.
Breakout at Heartbreak Hotel-Here are two pictures of me singing as ELVIN PESTLEY in Breakout at Heartbreak Hotel. This was a children's musical that I co-wrote. It was a rockin' version of the Pied Piper, except it had roaches instead of mice and it took place in Miami Beach.
Twelfth Night-My first attempt at Shakespeare was as FABIAN in Twelfth Night. I recieved the "Outstanding Achievment as a Performer" award for this performance...doth thou doubt it?
The Baltimore Waltz-This was one of the most challenging parts I had ever attempted. I portrayed THE THIRD MAN/DOCTOR in The Baltimore Waltz, and I had to play 13 different characters! This one was "Harry Lime", a scarey guy to play, but look at my face... I mean come on, I looks constipated!
Cinderella-OK, this was a tour of Cinderella that I did. I played RUBELLA (a step sister) & PRINCE CHARMING. It was a farce...duh! You can't really see my face as the sister, the light on stage was bright, but trust me, I'm hot!
YOU CAN SEE THE REVIEWS OF THESE SHOWSThe first 6 pictures and reviews were from Galveston Island Outdoor Musicals during the summers of 1996 & 1997
South Pacific-This was South Pacific, where I played PROFESSOR. (I know, I look like "It's Pat" from Saturday Night Live) This was a real fun show....but hot!!!!!
Camelot-Yes, that is me. I designed and did the make up myself for the role of MERLYN in Camelot. This was an incredible part to play, and I got to keep the staff.
Gypsy-Here I am once again playing multiple roles, they are (clockwise): UNCLE JOCKO, MR. WEBER, PASTEY and MR. GOLDSTONE from Gypsy. This was a fun show to do and I did it in a beautiful opera house...and I didn't have to dance in this one!...The audience was grateful for that one too.
Oklahoma-Yeah haw! Here I am as SLIM in Oklahoma, that's right, I was so skinny, I played the part! I had so much fun dancing and hoing-down on a hot, Texas stage...that would be sarcasm!
Singin' in the Rain-This was a big role for me, ROSCOE DEXTER in Singin' In The Rain. I had a blast with this show. I actually got to do about 30 minutes of stand-up for the 1700 people in the crowd when the lead walked out just before the show began. Talk about pressure!
Damn Yankees-Damn Yankees made me the baseball player SOHOVIK...the "intellegent" ball player. I look like a white, Jewish Urkel!
As You Like It-Yet another venture into Shakespeare, this time as CHARLES THE WRESTLER in As You Like It. The long hair is real, the beard isn't...I couldn't grow facial hair if I was half Chia!
