Robin Hood! in San Diego

I was thrilled to be in San Diego starting rehearsals for Robin Hood! We have an absolutely terrific cast. Robin Hood will be played by Daniel Reece, Michael Boatman plays Prince John, Kevin Cahoon will play The Sheriff of Nottingham, Manoel Felciano is Sir Guy of Gisbourne, Meredith Garretson plays Maid Marian, Andy Grotelueschen will play Friar Tuck, Suzelle Palacios plays Doerwynn, and Paul Whitty is Little John.

As always during rehearsals, I wrote new passages and I even added a new scene last night.

The Globe Theatre, of course, is a wonder to behold--three theatres in Balboa Park and they are always full.


While I was there, I saw Fiasco Theatre's production of The Imaginary Invalid and it was the greatest production of a Molière play I've ever seen. Don't miss it. It is truly remarkable. Andy Grotelueschen--who plays Friar Tuck in Robin Hood!-- plays the title role. Lucky me to have him in Robin Hood!

Shakespeare in Hollywood at Stagecrafters & visiting PSF's Three Musketeers

Two really nice articles came out this week and I wanted to share them with everyone.

One of my plays that is most dear to my heart is Shakespeare in Hollywood because it combines all of the things I love best: Shakespeare, A Midsummer Night’s Dream and high comedy. The Stagecrafters in Philadelphia, PA just received a rave review for their production of Shakespeare in Hollywood and here it is. Congrats to everyone involved.


And I loved this article and picture from my wonderful visit to the first rehearsal for The Three Musketeers at Pennsylvania Shakespeare Festival.

I’m the guy in the middle.


I can't wait to go back to see the show.
