Off West Broadway

Off West Broadway Theatre Company was instrumental in me getting started as an actor. While I was living at The Lamb's Church they began to produce plays in the smaller of their two Off-Broadway theatres. I showed up to help with construction and painting and anything that needed to be done. Before I knew it, David Wesner, their playwright-in-residence, wrote a play about a grad student who was accidentally locked in a mental institution, and I, as a grad student, got to play the lead!

I Dreamed I Was Free tells the story of Quaker abolitionist John Woolman, who spoke against slavery a century before our Civil War.

Mac's Birthday Party

I put together tours across America the summers of 1994 and 1995, so I'm pretty sure I got the date right on this. We're in Bryant Park, Midtown Manhattan for Mac Nelson's birthday party. He was best man at our wedding. 

I've always been known for my appetite. I believe this shot is from the same birthday party, based on Mac's shirt and the Bryant Park location.
