True Believers Staged Reading

The first public staged reading of my new play, True Believers, took place today at the Berkshire Fringe Festival, following two weeks of intense workshopping. The cast was as follows:

  • Chad Mailer..........Ryan Marchione
  • Billy Horowitz..........Joshua Ramos
  • Ted Thompson..........Bill Shein
  • Chloe Long..........Bethany Geiger
  • Kt Watts..........Kristen Sparhawk
  • Box/Ensemble..........Timothy Ryan Olson
  • Calvin..........Hector Rivera
  • Ensemble..........Clelia Sweeney
  • The Cyborg Head of Stan Lee..........Himself

Special thanks to my director, Keith Bulla, and dramaturg/playwright mentor Laura Maria Censabella. Overall, the script seemed to be well received, and I made a lot of progress on it over the past 2 weeks, tightening the story and sharpening the edges. There'll be another draft coming up, so stay tuned to see where your favorite Comic-Con play goes next!
