I am thrilled to join this ground breaking and poetic retelling of Carmen as Garcia, Carmen’s husband.
La Tragédie de Carmen is directed, conducted, and produced by an incredible team of female-identifying artists working to tell this story from a new perspective.
NEXT THING YOU KNOW
(2019 MONTREAL PRODUCTION)
After having originated the role of Luke in the Parisian production of Salzman and Cunningham’s Next Thing You Know, my co-writer Vincent Merval and I set out to adapt the show for a French audience.
Un Jour Ou L’Autre ran successfully in France and is now getting it’s bilingual “Frenglish” premiere in Montreal!
Read their press release below!
MONTREAL, January 24th, 2019. The off-Broadway musical NEXT THING YOU KNOW will be making its Montreal Debut in a bilingual “frenglish” version this May.
Next Thing You Know is the story of four friends in their thirties as they laugh, love, dream and drink their way through life in the heart of Montreal. A merger of Friends and How I Met Your Mother, you will most certainly fall in love with this hilarious show and its characters. The unique independent production is an immersive and interactive experience for audiences – all of it is performed in a real bar! (musical theatre + a pint of beer = what more can we ask for?)
(2015-2018 Parisian Productions)
Next Thing You Know is the story of four friends who laugh, love and drink their way through the big questions that face all young dreamers who wake up in the city that never sleeps (VO English) or in the ville lumière (VF).
Originally produced as Paris’ first site specific musical, the company has earned rave reviews from French theatre journalists with Regard en Coulisse, Musical Avenue, L’oeil d’Olivier, Tony Comedie and the London-based Musical Theatre Review. Audience reviews on BilletReduc ranked the production #1 in Paris Musical Theatre during its 2015-16 season run.

Manifesto : The Diaghilev Project
MANIFESTO: The Diaghilev Project is a collage-theatre piece conceived and created by Greek director Nadia Foskolou and American playwright Nathan Wright. MANIFESTO is part docu-theatre, part dance-concert, part electro-pop light show, and finally, part play. Taking cues from contemporary theatre artists like Charles Mee and Anna Deavere Smith, the piece uses historical documents, archived correspondence, period music, and electro-pop compositions along-side Wright’s original playwriting to explore the life and work of Sergei Diaghilev.
Sergei “Serge” Pavlovich Diaghilev (1872-1929) was one of the most significant and oft controversial figures of the early 20th Century. He founded and led the Ballet Russe, an itinerant ballet company, which provided a platform and launch-pad for such avant-garde icons as Pablo Picasso, Igor Stravinsky, Henri Matisse, Jean Cocteau, Coco Chanel, and dance phenome Vaslav Nijinsky.
MANIFESTO: The Diaghilev Project will have its first developmental presentations in New York City at The Robert Moss Theater July 24-28, 2018. Directed by Foskolou, written by Wright and starring Marc Sinoway as Diaghilev, the piece will be performed by 9 actor-dancers playing over 40 different roles with live music by classical pianist and experimental composer, Dustin Gledhill and choreography by Brad Landers. This production is an Equity Approved Showcase.
