Overjoyed to share that I just got to do the role of Mitchell in a PlayMakers Rep reading of Cry it Out, by Molly Smith Metzler, directed by Vivienne Benesch, as a part of the Women's Theatre Festival 2019. The entire cast is made up of actual parents - (who are dealing with parenting issues on a daily basis) since that's the world in which this play is set - a slice of the lives of new parents of babies! The reading took place on Saturday July 13th at 1PM at Burning Coal Theatre. The cast included: Jessie: Molly Ward, Adrienne: Rachel Spencer Hewitt, and Lina: Katie Paxton.
As of January 2019, Dan has joined Triangle ArtWorks as its ArtSwell Program Manager (and first official hire), where he will be working with eight regional partner organizations to build and launch an ongoing, year-round, professional development program for the arts.
Dan was recently cast as Boris Pronsky in Theatre Raleigh’s summer 2019 production of Junk, directed by Charlie Brady!
This March Dan will make his PlayMakers Repertory Theatre Mainstage debut in Bertold Brecht’s The Life of Galileo, directed by PlayMaker’s Artistic Director, Vivienne Benesch. (Dan is playing The Doge, The Chamberlain, Old Cardinal’s Attendant, Gaffone, and understudying the role of Galileo.)
Dan recently performed the role of Mark in the Regional Premiere of Rory Kinnear’s The Herd with Honest Pint Theatre Company at NRACT. Directed by David Henderson. (Pictured here with Jess Barbour as Claire)
In August I had the incredible fortune of playing Pale in Burn This with Sonorous Road Repertory Company and reconnecting onstage opposite my old PCPA classmate and friend, Danielle Koppel in the process... The theatre is a small world! Burn This by Lanford Wilson was directed by the incomparable Tony Lea and will ran August 3-19.
I recently completed my acting work on the World Premier run of Mike Wiley's, Blood Done Sign My Name at Raleigh Little Theatre, a true story, in which I played Oxford, NC's poet laureate, Thad Stem Jr., and other roles. It was a powerful ensemble production of an important new work, based on the book by Timothy Tyson, and directed by Joseph Megel! The show ran May 11 - 27, 2018 in the Gaddy-Goodwin Teaching Theatre.
I just finished a successful run of Stephen Sondheim's Assassins at Theatre in the Park in Raleigh - my first theatre experience here in North Carolina - directed by David Henderson. Can't say enough great things about this theatre, the company of Assassins, and the lovely people I have encountered along this road!
