ONLY YOU CAN PREVENT WILDFIRES - Announcement and Press Release

Harrison David Rivers is one of the most exciting, not to mention prolific, young writers, and just named "One to Watch" by American Theatre. Now, guess who gets to work with him on his latest work? Yes indeed! I'm super excited and proud to announce that I've been cast in the world premiere of Only You Can Prevent Wildfires, produced by Ricochet Collective and directed by Sherri Eden Barber (with whom I've collaborated with before on The 24 Hour Plays). The play revolves around a true and sometimes, unbelievable story, the 2002 Hayman wildfire. I play the role of John Barton, husband to Terry Lynn, a forest ranger found responsible for setting the largest wildfire in Colorado state history. And it all started with a love letter...or did it? 

DO NOT MISS THIS SHOW. IT WILL SELL OUT :-)

NEWEST VOICEOVER WORK - FOX DEPORTES

It's no secret that I love fútbol - yes, some might call it an obsession - but I don't like labels ;-) Anytime I get to do voiceovers to promote the beautiful game is a great day in my book.

CBS TELEVISION CASTING WORKSHOP 

Out of thousands of submissions, I was one of a lucky 30 who were invited to participate in a casting workshop at CBS' New York offices led by Barbara Matos and Fern Orenstein. The workshop ended very positively with a private callback with Fern and CBS writers, resulting in consideration for the upcoming season.

TWO RIVER THEATER CROSSING BORDERS (CRUZANDO FRONTERAS) FESTIVAL

Red Bank, New Jersey is home to one of the nation's most prestigious regional theaters. Many shows that are developed at Two River have gone on to be produced in NYC, both on Broadway and off. I was invited by Stephanie Ybarra (The Public Theater) and Stephanie Cohen (Two River) to workshop two new plays, including El by Raul Garza, directed by Michelle Bossy and Blancaflor by Cecilia Cackley, directed by Jerry Ruiz. The festival was a wonderful experience, culminating in sold-out readings. I highly recommend checking out the town of Red Bank and of course, a play at Two River

PAGE SIX SHOUTOUT

I was featured in the infamous Page Six of The NY Post, without having played basketball with Leo or being arrested with Lohan. I guess that's a little bit of a letdown, but no such thing as bad publicity, right!? Click on image for full article and buy your tickets now!

PUBLIC SPEAKING @ Joe's Pub

A truly celebratory night, recapping The Public Theater's year and things to come, including a production of the Shakespeare Mobile Unit's Romeo y Julieta which I was part of during its workshop. Reunited with the magnanimous Artistic Director Oskar Eustis and wonderful actor Flor De Liz Perez. I also had the pleasure of meeting and chatting with the vibrant and trailblazing Gail Papp, widow of Joe Papp, founder of The Public Theater. Quite a special night!

 

CAPTAIN FANTASTIC - SAG Nominating Committee screening @ Sunshine Cinema 

Viggo Mortensen is one of my favorite actors and an honorary Argentine. I really loved Captain Fantastic and strongly recommend it to all. Learning what went into making this powerful film only made me appreciate it more, plus the added bonus of getting to speak with Viggo in Spanish was pretty cool too.
