Some of you will recall that I made a pledge to my wife to take some time away from bardic this year and get involved in a community theater production. That commitment is about to bear fruit. This Saturday (September 8), The Mystery of Edwin Drood opens with the Bergen County Players in Oradell, NJ, and I will be playing the role of John Jasper (the villain–but am I in fact the murderer?) Click here for show details (it runs every weekend through Saturday October 7), or if you wish to order tickets.
Returning to theater work has been a demanding but highly enjoyable experience, and this is probably the biggest role I’ve ever had in a musical. If you’re not far and would like to enjoy a funny evening of music and melodrama, tickets are $24 each.
