so grateful...

I am currently working on a dream project in Tampa, FL. Norwegian Cruise Lines has honored me with the opportunity to Direct and Choreograph a new production show for one of the ships in the fleet. I am thrilled and I'm already having a great time working with an incredible group of singers and dancers. 

Years ago I did a show on Broadway called THE LOOK OF LOVE. It was a fantastic show that didn't last long. I wored with am amazing company and had the chance to understudy incredible gents Desmond Richardson, Eugene Fleming, Jonathan Dokuchitz and Kevin Ceballo. It was and unsurpassed challenge and I will always hold it close to my heart. I learned a lot. 

The show on NCL is a collection of Burt Bacharach songs as was the NY production. My concept resembles the Broadway production but is already, in rehearsal, nothing like Bway. I am so happy to be involved. I hope that the work I'm doing is received well. I am excited to share my work with travelers throughout the world.

Thank you Richard Ambrose and Robert Dean and everyone atNCL for this incredible opportunity.

EnJoY!

I'm so frustrated today...

I'm having one of those days where I can't seem to get my chin up off of the floor. I don't like feeling this way. I am generally a very, very happy person but lately some individuals have disappointed me. 

I keep telling myself that my issues with these individuals are simply "champagne problems." In other words, problems that anyone wouldn't mind having. That's not true though. The issues would piss anyone who takes there job, career and friendships seriously. I'm angry and disappointed but I will move on. Just writing this makes me feel better honestly. 

I don't know if anyone even reads these blogs. Probably not because I have such a hard time keeping up with my social media sites. Ah well. I am doing the best I can. I'm a busy guy trying to do it all.

Until next time...

To be or not to be...

I don't know why I felt like writing that but I just did. 

"Hello world! Do you believe in love? Cause I got something to say about it, and it goes like this..."

i wake up and say this every morning.

Fresno

Hey folks! I just visited Fresno, CA for the first time. It was a short stay. I performed at the Saroyan Theatre with Nat Chandler and Matthew Shepard Smith. It was a nice crowd of people. Over 1200 showed up for the Rat Pack Symphonic event. Great evening.

Unfortunately, my flght home has been delayed which turns my day off (Sundays) into a day sitting in the airport terminal. I've already had too much Starbucks and I anticipate getting home much later than I'd hoped. Ah well. It is what it is.

EnJoY!
