                          Recent News:

Waitress, Broadway:

I’ve popped in from time to time to play the role of “Cal” along side its original star, Tony© Award winner, Jessie Mueller, and again later with Broadway alum Betsy Wolfe, and most recently American Idol and Smash star, Katherine McPhee.  The whole company is spectacular - Stephanie Torns is the go-to Jenna cover from the Ensemble and is a star in her own right, as those audiences who’ve seen her when she’s taken over the role for weeks at a time well know.  I always have a wonderful time in this beautiful show and look forward to coming back again sometime soon!

9 to 5, Stages St. Louis:

I had a wonderful time the summer of 2017, playing the sexist, egotistical, lying, hypocritical bigot, Franklin Hart, Jr., opposite some spectacularly talented women: Corinne Melançon, Laura E Taylor, and Summerisa Bell Stevens and an incredible supporting cast.

Billy Elliot Maltz Jupiter Theatre:

December 1st-20th, 2015. I was thrilled to play “Dad” to our exceptionally talented Billys: Nicolas Dantes and Jamie Mann.  It was an absolutely beautiful show and I was proud to be a part of this company!!
